Definitely provides me with extra support and protection from an old Achilles tendon injury during my weekly 5km runs and interval running.
Down side is I think you really need a pair as the small support wedge for other leg sometimes shifts around too much.
Damian, Fantastic you are getting the use of the AchillioTrain on your 5km runs and keeping active with the right support and protection!
The silicon support coupled with the flat knitted compression material achieves that comfortable fit and support without losing its position. Its also quite breathable compared with standard neoprene products particularly with our extensive sizing system.
Achilles tendon injuries are never fun and wish you all the best with the ongoing recovery
