The compressive fabric and silicone inserts have a massage effect which promotes circulation and therefore assists with rapid resorption of haematomas and oedemas.
The support improves proprioception and aids muscular support (stabilisation of the ankle).
How does it work?/Mode of action
Levamed causes a massage effect, which supports perfusion, with interaction between the compressive knitted fabric and the two integrated silicon inlays. This effect reduces swelling and bruising. Irritation and pain are relieved. Muscular control and the stabilisation of the ankle joint improve.
Supports are particularly beneficial during physical exercise.
Fold the top of the support over as far down as the silicone inlay.
Take hold off the support in the middle of the silicone inlays and pull it over the foot until the heel part fits tightly.
Unfold upper part of the support and pull it upwards, if necessary.
Ensure that the silicone inlays are correctly located either side of the ankle.
Initial application must be made under medical supervision.
The support is designed to fit comfortably and may be worn all day. It should be removed during prolonged periods of inactivity (e.g. sitting for a long time or a long car drive, sleeping).
If you suffer excessive pain or discomfort during wear, please take off the product immediately and seek medical advice.
The support is suitable for use in water. After use, please rinse thoroughly.
