The Bauerfeind MalleoTrain S: Reinventing the Ankle Support Bandage
With the MalleoTrain S ankle support, Bauerfeind has reinvented the classic ankle bandage. A great alternative to an ankle support tape, the MalleoTrain S is a stretchable ankle support wrap and brace that not only provides you with superb security for your ankle while exercising, but can also help in preventing further ankle injury even while you engage in rigorous sports activities. The MalleoTrain S also serves as an excellent ankle stabilizer for those who are already suffering from ankle ligament instability.
What Is Ankle Ligament Instability and How Can Ankle Supports Help?
Both ligaments and tendons hold the ankle and foot together. When there is an injury to the ligaments of the ankle in particular (as in the case of an ankle sprain, for instance), the ligaments can be stretched out or torn, thus weakening them long even after recovery. In ankle injuries that are left untreated or in cases where multiple sprains are suffered over a short period of time, extreme ankle ligament instability is often the result.
So how can ankle braces and supports help? In cases of ankle instability, wearing an ankle brace or ankle support during the healing process or after post-recovery can help protect and stabilize the ankle during load bearing. It is important to note here that an excellent brace or support will help secure the ankle without ever restricting its natural mobility.
The Bauerfeind MelleoTrain S provides both maximum support and mobility for people suffering from ankle ligament instability.
