Bauerfeind MalleoLoc Ankle Brace orthosis is an anatomically self-shaping stabilizing orthosis that can be used in the immediate care and treatment of ankle injuries. It stabilizes the ankle and protects it from lateral twisting after serious twisting injuries, torn ligaments and capsular ligament strains. This support provides normal heel-to-toe movement of the foot and can be worn therapeutically without a shoe.

Features



  • Bauerfeind MalleoLoc Ankle Brace Orthosis lies against the antero-lateral aspect of the joint to counteract forward movement of the talus
  • Proprioceptive effects promote active stabilization of the ankle muscles
  • Conforms to the outside edge of the foot to counteract supination, even without a shoe
  • Fits anteriorly lateral to the malleolus and posterior medial to prevent the outward rolling of the ankle
  • Fits snugly on the foot and can be worn without difficulty in almost any sturdy shoe
  • Clip mechanism of the Velcro strap system reinforces the tensile force and makes it easier to put on
  • Special low-fatigue cushioning increases wearing comfort
  • Can be individually shaped
  • Latex free
  • Indications:
    - Early functional treatment for injuries of the lateral malleolar ligaments (and the bifurcate ligaments)
    - Capsular ligament strains
    - Postoperative rehabilitation
    - Chronic ligament insufficiency
    - Prophylactic ankle protection

More Information

  • Stability of the ankle-bone:
    - The MalleoLoc stabilizing orthosis is anatomically contoured to conform to the outside edge of the foot and includes a strap system
    - It fits snugly on the foot and passes forwards along the side of the joint and then underneath the sole, leaving the heel free
    - It thus counteracts both talar shift and lateral twisting of the foot
    - The musculature of the ankle is actively stabilized
    - As well as acute care, this orthosis can be thermoplastically shaped to the individual anatomy of the foot and used for stabilization in chronic cases of ligament weakness
  • Stimulating effect on the tibialis anterior muscle:
    -
    Under the sole on the outer edge of the foot there is a tongue-shaped protrusion, which stimulates the musculature, and in particular the tibialis anterior, thus reinforcing the stabilizing and mobilizing effects of the orthosis
    - Provides effective protection against further injuries, and can also be successfully used as part of the early functional treatment of capsular ligament strain and outer malleolus ligament injuries
  • Contraindications:
    - Hypersensitivity reactions harmful to health have not been reported to date
    - Such aids should only be fitted and applied after consultation with physician
    - Skin disorders or injuries in the relevant part of the body, particularly if inflammation is present
    - Likewise, any raised scars with swelling, redness and excessive heat build-up
    - Impaired sensation and circulatory disorder of the legs or feet, eg. in diabetes mellitus
    - Impaired lymph drainage, including soft tissue swelling of uncertain origin located some distance away from the support
