MalleoLoc Ankle Brace

Overview

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

  • Anatomically self-shaping
  • Low-fatigue cushioning
  • Stimulates the tibialis anterior muscle

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. This firstly provides effective protection against further injuries, and secondly means that the MalleoLoc can also be successfully used as part of the early functional treatment of capsular ligament strain and outer malleolus ligament injuries.

COMFORTABLE IN EVERYDAY LIFE

MalleoLoc fits snugly on the foot and can be worn without difficulty in almost any sturdy shoe. It retains its therapeutic effectiveness even without a shoe and protects against lateral twisting movements. The clip mechanism of the Velcro® strap system reinforces the tensile force and makes it easier to put on. The special low-fatigue cushioning increases wearing comfort.


Indications

  • Early functional treatment for injuries of the lateral malleolar ligaments (and the bifurcate ligaments)
  • Capsular ligament strains
  • Postoperative rehabilitation
  • Chronic ligament insufficiency

MEASUREMENT AND PRODUCT RANGE


Care Instructions

MalleoLoc can be cleaned separately by hand washing using a mild alkali-free cleaning agent. In order to maintain the functionality of the Velcro fasteners for a long time and to avoid damage, we recommend closing them before washing.

When drying, do not expose the MalleoLoc to direct heat (e.g. heating, solar radiation, etc.).

Materials

Care Instructions

All Train active supports can be washed separately in the washing machine at 30°C with liquid detergent. Please note the following information:

In the case of products with Velcro straps, these should be removed if possible or firmly attached to the designated place.

If possible, pads or splints should also be removed before washing.

It is recommended to use a laundry net (spin cycle: maximum 500 revolutions per minute). Dry your Train active support in the air and not in the dryer, otherwise, the knitted fabric may be impaired.

Please wash your Train active support regularly so that the compression of the knitted fabric is retained.

HIGHLY EFFECTIVE FOR HEALTHY KNEES

After an acute injury or surgery, chronic abnormalities, osteoarthritis or instability in the knee: the GenuTrain relieves pain and promotes movement through intermittent compression massage. This puts you on the right track towards natural movement.

The ring-shaped Omega+ Pad functional cushion securely holds the kneecap in place and reduces edema and swelling. Integrated massage points with specially flexible silicone nubs target particularly painful areas. Two flexible plastic stays on the side ensure that the GenuTrain always fits perfectly. At the top and bottom, integrated grips make it easier to put on and take off the support.

FIT AGAIN FASTER

Your body needs to learn how to move naturally again as quickly as possible and avoid incorrect postures adopted to help relieve pain. The Train knit fabric repeatedly stimulates the skin, which promotes movement perception, activates the muscles and stabilizes the joint.

Two massage points called meniscus wings on the sides of the knee provide a targeted pain-relieving effect around the joint space and the menisci. Two additional massage points, the Hoffa spots, stimulate the infrapatellar fat pad with controlled pressure. This has a significant metabolic function and promotes the self-healing process in the knee.

The GenuTrain allows physiotherapy and gentle training to be started at an earlier stage. This enables your knee to recover thanks to active movement. After all, you know that being active is key to good health!
