  • For thermal treatment to be truly effective, the heat needs to be generated continuously for long periods
  • Should not be worn within 72 hours of initial ankle trauma
  • Wear directly against the skin. Do not use heat creams inside the support
  • Arthritic ankle pain

    Arthritic conditions affect the joints of the body. If the area where the bones meet in the ankle joint become damaged, the bones can no longer glides easily over one another and this can cause pain. Arthritis in the ankle can manifest itself as stiffness in the ankle joint, weak ankles, ankle instability and even visible deformities. We recommend seeing your medical professional for a complete diagnosis if you are suffering any ankle pain.

    Thermoskin's Trioxon® Advantage

    Thermoskin Thermal supports feature exclusive Trioxon Advantage technology, for the enhanced recovery of sports injuries, arthritis and RSI.

    Thermoskin Thermal supports have been carefully designed so that they can be worn continuously for long periods and during a range of activities including sleeping, in order to deliver the highest benefits of thermal therapy.

    Benefits of Trioxon Advantage:

  • Promotes increased blood flow which facilitates enhanced recovery from injury.
  • Provides light but firm compression to counteract tissue swelling.
  • Clinically tested to increase skin and muscle temperature to help prevent, treat and rehabilitate soft tissue injuries.
  • Provides temporary relief from pain/soreness associated with sports injuries, arthritis and RSI.
  • Increases elasticity and reactivity of the muscle, allowing for greater range of movement.
  • Wearing this support sends unconscious alerts to the brain, reminding the body to self correct its alignment and posture.
  • Assists in providing insulation whilst wicking away moisture. This helps the skin to remain oxygenated and comfortable for extended periods of time.
  • Thermoskin Trioxon Advantage
    When to use:
    1. Prevention: Thermoskin may be worn prior, during or after activities to help prevent soft tissue injuries
    2. Treatment: Thermoskin can be a valuable complement to present methods of treatment. Worn almost anywhere and anytime, it works continuously to help overcome injury post 72 hours.
    3. Rehabilitation: Thermoskin is an important adjunct in helping rehabilitate injuries as it allows soft tissue to become fully extensible and more responsive to therapy and exercise following surgery, lay-off or overuse injury.

  • Wear the support directly against the skin, do not use heat creams under the thermal support.
  • Use the thermal support after the initial trauma subsides. First action calls for rest, ice, compression.
