The Actimove KIDS Ankle Support for Children is specially designed to support the ankle with mild compression, relieving pain and delivering warmth to the joint. This helps to improve circulation and speed recovery.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Ankle Support

Please note that this support is ambidextrous, meaning that it can be comfortably worn on either the left or right ankle.

Who Should Use the Actimove Compression Ankle Support?

This children's ankle brace provides even compression to the ankle and arch, making it ideal for most types of ankle pain. In particular, this support is suited to:

  • Mild sprains and strains
  • Acute ankle injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Weak ankles
  • Chronic ankle pain and swelling

Will This Brace Fit My Child?

This ankle brace is available in two sizes designed to fit children from between the ages of 6 - 10 and 11 - 15. To determine which size is right for you, measure the circumference of your child's ankle just above the ankle bone, as shown in the graphic below. Then, choose your size based on the sizes listing in the table below.

Sizing of the Actimove Children's Ankle Brace

Size Ankle Circumference
Paediatric (Age 6 -10) 16.5 - 19cm (6.5 - 7.25")
Youth (Age 11 - 15) 18.5 - 22cm (7.25 - 8.5")

How Does This Ankle Brace Reduce Pain?

By providing compression and warmth to the patient's ankle, this support will help to control any pain and swelling associated with all sorts of common ankle injuries. The compression and warmth will also serve to promote circulation in the joint, helping the body to provide nutrients to the area to quicken the healing process.

How Do I Apply the Paediatric Ankle Brace?

This support includes no straps, buckles or adjustments, so it's simple to apply in seconds. Simply slip the brace on so that the open ankle zone is placed directly over the bottom of the heel, and your child will be enjoying pain-relieving compression immediately. The image below shows the proper application procedure.

How Breathable is the Actimove Children's Ankle Brace?

To help this brace stay comfortable during daily activities, it's lined with Actimove's specially-designed COOLMAX AIR material. This material allows cooling air to flow between the child's skin and the support, which helps to prevent the build-up of sweat and moisture that can lead to friction, abrasion and discomfort. With flexible and moisture-wicking materials, this support will be comfortable for children to wear for hours on end.

How Comfortable is This Ankle Support?

As ensuring compliance can be particularly difficult with children, Actimove design their range of supports for kids with anatomical shapes and particularly soft materials. Once applied, this brace won't provide any irritation to your child's skin, and will help to reduce their pain while promoting healing and contributing to the avoidance of re-injury.

Does This Brace Contain Latex or Neoprene?

No, this brace is made with Actimove's specially-designed cotton-free material which is completely neoprene-free and latex-free. As latex and neoprene will frequently cause irritation, this support is ideal for those with sensitive skin.
