Product Description More Information

Thermoskin Ankle Defence

Thermoskin Ankle Defence assists in the treatment of acute ankle injuries such as medial and lateral ligament damage. The rigid support features stabilising straps which simulate figure 8 strapping of a professional athletic trainer and acts to position the ankle in the beneficial 90 degree angle. Use of the Ankle Defence brace may help reduce the severity and frequency of ankle injuries. Low profile design means the brace fits comfortably in your shoe.

Ligament Injuries

Ligament injuries in the ankle joint are very common particularly amongst sportspeople. The lateral ligament is composed of three parts (ATFL, CFL, PTFL). The ATFL is the most commonly damaged ligament in lateral ligament injuries. When all three parts are damaged the ankle joint dislocates and may result in a fracture. Lateral ligament injuries are often seen in sports which require quick change in direction such as netball and football.

The medial (deltoid) ligament is much stronger than the lateral ligament and is therefore injured much less frequently. Significant force is required to damage the medial ligament however it is common to see both medial and lateral damage in severe accidents. When damaged, the medial ligament may require lengthy rehabilitation before returning to activity.

    How to wear:

    The Ankle Defence brace has been designed to be worn over an athletic sock.
    1. Hold the brace on either side and pull it over your foot like a shoe. Ensure both side stabilisers are in the side pockets as required, then lace up firmly.
    2. Begin by lacing the bottom two eyelets just comfortably tight.
    3. Wrap the inside (medial) stabilising strap under the heel and attach the adhesive end of the strap to the side of support. Repeat steps 2 and for the outside (lateral) stabilising strap.
    4. Now that the brace is in position, you can re-adjust both the medial strap, and lateral strap as needed, to achieve the desired tension.
    5. Wrap top elastic strap closure over the tied laces and secure.
    6. Re-adjust as required.
  • Please consult your healthcare specialist for appropriate use prior to applying this products.

    Reviewer: Sharni Waiwiri from Perth, WA Australia  
    I recently ordered the Thermoskin Sport ankle brace but it didnt suit my needs as i needed stability i also ordered the incorrect size. Upon calling to return my product I was notified if i ordered the correct one it would be put on the truck to be delivered straight away (I am in WA so  it still had to come across states) But as i put the wrong one in the post box to be returned i came home to find my new one waiting for me all in the space of two days! Amazing service. I used the ankle defence whilst playing netball totally satisfied!!! it was great no digging no marks left on my foot after use! will be ordering another one for the other ankle in due course! Happy Customer not just with the product but also the service.
