Fits nicely under sock and into basketball boot. Gives great lateral support to avoid future ankle sprains
The Sports Ankle Support provides stability to the ankle joint during intense activity, protecting against sprains and lateral twists.
The Sports Ankle Support features a breathable knitted fabric, consisting of ventilation zones, which allows for heat and sweat dissipation during exercise. Gradient compression is also engineered into the fabric to support muscle activity and assist with blood flow to the ankle joint, helping to reduce any swelling.
Similar to the MalleoTrain S ankle brace, the adjustable strap system featured in the Sports Ankle Support minimises the risk of sprains under increased stress. Ideal for athletes and individuals engaging in jumping activity and sports with start-stop situations.
We recommend using the MalleoTrain S for everyday use, and the Sports Ankle Support during sport.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is true medical-grade compression?
Gradient compression means the compression is strongest farthest away from the center of the body/heart and slowly loosens as it goes closer to the center of the body.
Medical-grade compression levels are in the “sweet spot” for improving circulation and removing lactic-acid and other fluid build up. Unlike most other 'active wear' and retail compression available in Australia (that are not gradient and provide much lower grade compression), Bauerfeind compression is true medical grade.
What’s the difference between the Performance and Recovery lines?
Sports Supports are ideal for shorter bursts of intense activity (like a workout or a basketball game), whereas Medical Supports are softer and more comfortable for all-day wear.
Sports braces and supports are great for injury prevention, but if you already have an injury you're trying to recover from, we’d recommend going with a Recovery brace or support.
What is proprioception?
Succeeding at your sport relies on your coordination and confidence, and gaining awareness of your body’s movements is essential to improving performance and preventing an injury.
Excellent guard to basketball
I tore the tendons and cartilage on both sides of my right Ankle - this sport brace has really helped me get back into walking then sport - I am a personal trainer and I find the brace really comfortable and supportive and fits right into my sneakers (a bit wider than usual) but nothing too bad!! Easy to wash and great colour!!!
