Bauerfeind AchilloTrain Pro provides active support with a high-reaching friction insert. The AchilloTrain Pro is ideal for cases of achillodynia (tendinosis, paratendinitis, bursitis subachillea) and for postoperative use, e.g. following chronic diseases of the Achilles tendon or ligaments. The AchilloTrain Pro features the new viscoelastic insert with soft, proprioceptive stimulating nubs on the inside as well as longitudinal grooves. The upper third tendon and the muscle-tendon transition with the related operating “nerve endings” (place receptors) are stimulated by two wing-like inserts. The knit with integrated stretch zone in the ventral tibia area makes it easier for the patient to apply and remove the support. If needed, a heel lift with a shock absorbing heel cushion is recommended. The short knit section in the foot area prevents pressure points on the fifth metatasal bones. The active support is anatomically knit to provide an excellent fit and is very comfortable to wear. Mode of action:
- The continous transition between compression and decompression (similar to a friction massage) through the integrated nubs accelerates the healing process and through the longitudinal grooves reduces edema.
- The simultaneous proprioceptive stimulated of the nerve endings in the muscle transitions improves muscular control. The sensorimotor quality is positively influenced and the neuromyonal system supported. This leads to synchronization of muscle activites.
Sizing Take measurements around the ankle.
