When should I use an ankle brace?
Ankle braces can be worn to treat sprains, instability and for both general and specific ankle pain. While recovering from injury, the brace will stabilise the ankle ligaments, tendons and joints to decrease inflammation and speed-up the healing process. Ankle braces can also be worn to prevent injury or for those who require additional ankle stability during movement.
How does an ankle brace work?
By providing support and stability to specific areas of the ankle, the brace ensures pain relief at all levels of movement. Premium ankle braces offer medical-grade compression to support and activate the surrounding muscles, whilst reducing swelling to speed up recovery. This also maximises your perception and awareness of the position and movement of your ankle (proprioception).

Which ankle brace is right for me?
Bauerfeind has created a range of ankle braces, each suited to treat, or manage, specific ankle injuries. As a general rule, soft-sleeve products are for mild to moderate injuries and for low-level stability. Whereas hard braces are for moderate to severe injuries and provide a higher level of stability.
If you are still unsure which ankle brace is most suitable for you, we recommend for you to get in touch with one of our product specialists via the live chat and email function on our homepage or via phone during business hours on 1300 668 466. You can also consult a medical practitioner for their opinion.
How do I take care of these products?
Virtually all of our products can be machine washed on a cold gentle cycle and air dried out of direct sunlight. Putting them on and taking them off carefully is recommended, and for specific product care, refer to the product manual or contact our friendly staff.
What is the warranty for these products?
All supports and insoles come with a 12 month warranty, and compression stockings with a 3 month warranty for any manufacturers faults. At any point if you've got issues with the product or aren't sure if something is wrong, just contact our helpful staff.
How do I know they'll fit?
Bauerfeind have an incredibly extensive sizing system for our products based off of hundreds of thousands of patient measurements. The perfect anatomic fit system we use means that the supports are designed to fit your body, not the other way around. (We also offer custom options for a range of our products for those rare few who still can't fit into our sizing range).
How long should I wear my ankle brace?
This changes from case to case. Generally, it's best to wear the brace until you have completely recovered from your injury, or when performing activities known to cause pain. For injury prevention, wear the ankle brace during exercise and when you're putting the ankle under particular strain.
For those suffering from constant pain, such as ankle arthritis, compression garments can be worn at all times, to ease pain and swelling.
How do I clean my ankle brace?
Wash the compression braces on a gentle cycle, at a low temperature, and then allow them to air-dry. Ideally, the garments should be washed in a delicates wash-bag. Clothes dryers should be avoided as the high temperatures can damage the fabric and grade of compression. For hard braces, hand-wash in cool water and allow to air-dry.
Can I return my ankle brace?
Yes, with our simple 30 day return or exchange policy, if your brace isn't the right fit, we will refund or exchange. We can only accept returns or exchanges if the product is unused apart from trying it on. More details here - shipping and returns.
When will my ankle brace arrive?
All orders placed prior to 3pm are generally dispatched the same day, if not, they will be dispatched on the next business day. If ankle braces are on back order, you will be immediately notified of potential delays.
