Actimove Arthritis Care Compression Ankle Support
Ankle supports are designed to relieve the discomfort associated with arthritis, by providing warmth and compression. Comfortable and secure, the Actimove Arthritis Care Compression Ankle Support features heat-retaining ceramic fibres to direct body heat back to the ankle, with compressive fibres to support and control swelling.
Please note that this support is ambidextrous, meaning that it can be comfortably worn on either the left or right ankle.
Who Can Use the Actimove Arthritis Brace?
The Actimove Arthritis Ankle Support is designed to provide compression and warmth, making it versatile enough to improve most forms of ankle pain. In particular, this brace is suited to:
- Swollen ankles
- Use while reintroducing activity after injury
- Chronic ankle pain
- Achilles tendonitis
- Repetitive strain or overuse issues
Will This Ankle Brace Relieve Pain?
Yes, this ankle support is designed to relieve pain in two ways:
- Heat-Retention: Unique ceramic fibres reflect body heat back toward the ankle, soothing the area and increasing blood flow
- Compression: The brace will provide light compression to the ankle, helping to increase circulation, promote healing and manage pain
Which Size Should I Choose?
The Actimove Compression Ankle Brace is available in five sizes. To determine the correct size for you, please measure the circumference of your ankle as shown in the diagram, and refer to the table below. If you fall on a sizing boundary, we recommend choosing the larger size of the two.
|Size ||Ankle Circumference |
|Small ||16 - 21cm (6.25 - 8.25") |
|Medium ||21 - 26cm (8.25 - 10.25") |
|Large ||26 - 31cm (10 .25 - 12.25") |
|Extra Large ||31 - 39cm (12.25 - 15.25") |
|XX-Large ||39 - 43cm (15.25 - 19.25") |
How Comfortable Is the Actimove Compression Support?
As this brace is designed to be worn for long hours of the day, it is made with irritation-free materials and breathable fabric. Completely latex-free, this brace is perforated to make it comfortable whether you're lounging around the house or taking part in sports.
How Do I Apply the Actimove Compression Ankle Sleeve?
There are no straps or adjustments to worry about, so you can simply slide the sleeve onto your ankle and enjoy compressive pain reduction immediately. There is a smooth motion-comfort zone on the back of the support, and once this area is over your heel, you'll instantly feel that the support is where it should be. The diagram below shows proper application procedure.
How Do Ceramic Fibres Increase Heat Retention?
Aside from the compression this ankle brace provides, its main benefit comes through the heat-retaining ceramic fibres designed to trap the body's heat. As is shown in the diagram below, ceramic fibres work to target Far Infrared Radiation to the ankle, which helps to improve mobility, promote blood flow and relieve pain. This soothing warmth effect allows the brace to provide a greater pain-relieving effect when compared to braces that are made with compressive fibres alone.
How Durable Is This Ankle Support?
As this brace is designed for use for long hours of the day, it is reinforced for durability to retain its compression and comfort. Seamless with reinforced edges, this support is manufactured to last for extended use.
Does This Brace Contain Latex?
No, this brace is made with ceramic and compressive fibres that are completely latex-free. As latex is often associated with allergic reactions and skin irritation, the materials used make this arthritis brace particularly suitable for those with sensitive skin.
