Bauerfeind MalleoTrain Ankle Support
Bauerfeind Malleotrain Ankle Brace
The MalleoTrain ankle support is a lightweight knitted brace, which means that it is very comfortable to wear because it stretches, breathes well and wicks away moisture while providing necessary compression. The support features two soft inserts that are sewn in to the support that fit gently inside and outside of the ankle Malleoli bones that work to massage the area to produce increased blood flow to the area to assist in the healing process.

Bauerfeind MalleoTrain FAQ's
Q. Can I wear the Bauerfeind MalloTrain with shoes/Will it fit in shoes?
A. Yes. It can be worn with or without shoes.
Q. Should I wear socks under MalleoTrain Ankle Support?
A. Not thick socks, although hosiery/stockings are o.k. MalleoTrain should be worn against the skin for the maximum massage and compression effect. A sock can be worn over the support.
Q. Why does the MalleoTrain Ankle Support come in left and right versions?
A. The left and right ankle are anatomically different. Therefore, they require differently shaped supports for optimal fit and therapy. MalleoTrain also has 2 silicone inserts that are shaped differently to accommodate the inside and outside of the ankle bones. The silicone on the inside is thicker and shorter to fill in the more concave area on this side of the ankle bone.
Q. Will the Bauefeind MalleoTrain Ankle Support stabilize the ankle?
A. MalleoTrain's main function is to provide compression and massage to decrease pain and swelling. The knit also promotes proprioception (knowing where your body is in space) so in that respect it increases natural stabilization. However, it is not designed to prevent ankle sprains/strains. MalleoLoc is our ankle stabilizing product.
