Elastic ankle support with anatomically shaped pads

protect.Leva is an ankle support with pads. The product is exclusively to be used for the orthotic fitting of the ankle joint and only on unbroken skin.



Features

Product benefits

  • Breathable, elastic and light material, and anatomically-shaped knit

  • Anatomically-shaped silicone pads for effective pressure relief and stabilisation

  • Increased comfort by using softer material in the flexion area


How does it work?/Mode of action

  • Stabilisation of the joint
  • Reduction of swellings and effusions due to the massage effect exerted by the interaction between the compressive knit and the pads

Donning/fitting instructions

Grasp the support in the middle of the pads and pull it over the foot till the heel portion is properly fitted.
You may have to pull the support upwards. You may also have to correct the position of the pads, so that both are lying correctly round the ankle.
Please note that the support should be fitted for the first time as instructed by trained specialists.
