How does it work?/Mode of action

Rigid shells provide very good stabilisation in pronation and supination movements
The padding adapts to the varying anatomical conditions and provides a uniform compression

Donning/fitting instructions

Open all the Velcro bands and Velcro fasteners.
Adjust the width of the heel. Position the part that goes under the heel using the Velcro fasteners so that the side parts fit well to the ankle.
Put the ankle at a 90 degree angle. Put the orthosis on in such a way that the heel is in the middle of the piece that goes under it and the side parts are adjusted to the ankle.
Close the bottom Velcro fastener first and make sure that the side parts remain parallel.
Close the top Velcro band.
Pull one strap tight or pull on both straps alternately until the orthosis is firmly in place and does not exert too much pressure on the ankle. Using the included pump, you can regulate the air content of the blister and thus individually adjust the comfort level for yourself. One nozzle of the pump is used for inflation and the other for deflation.
