The brace itself seems to be quite good, however it was far too large in the foot. I measured per the size guide, and because I have narrow feet (5cm smaller in circumference to my ankle), the brace was too large. If you’re like me, I suggest contactING customer service, as Gareth has been exceptionally helpful and I’ve ordered a smaller size and am just waiting on delivery.
The MalleoTrain Plus ankle brace effectively prevents foot injuries and rehabilitates previously injured joints.
Unique to the MalleoTrain Plus are two gel pads, embedded on both sides, which actively massage the ankle joint to reduce inflammation and provide pain relief. Produced from an elastic and comfortable knit material, the MalleoTrain Plus delivers medical grade compression to reduce swelling and promote circulation.
Similar to the MalleoTrain S ankle brace, the adjustable strap system is also featured in the MalleoTrain Plus. This strap system acts as a functional tape bandage to prevent lateral twisting and provide stability to the ankle joint. Ideal for post-operative recovery, ankle ligament instability and severe ankle sprains.
We recommend using the Sports Ankle Support during exercise, and the MalleoTrain Plus for the day to day treatment of mild to moderate ankle indications.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I prevent relapse of a major ankle injury?
A sprained ankle increases chances of re-injury by approximately 40-70%. However, you can decrease your risk of injury by a correct post-injury rehabilitation programme. We recommend strengthening exercises for the ankle joint to improve natural mobility and prevent relapse.
For active support and stabilisation, we recommend wearing Malleotrain Plus if you suffered a severe injury or the Malleotrain/Malleotrain S if it was a mild/moderate injury.
What is the difference between Malleotrain and Malleotrain Plus?
Malleotrain Plus is a combination of Malleotrain and MalleoTrain S. It features the viscoelastic gel pads of the Malleotrain and the elastic figure-of-eight strap system from Malleotrain S. Malleotrain Plus is beneficial for the treatment of ligament injuries such as torn ligament, Grade 2 and Grade 3 sprains, post-operative recovery and to prevent overpronation or supination of the foot.
Can you walk with a torn ligament in your ankle?
Overuse of the ankle joint can cause a painful ligament tear. Lateral ankle ligaments are at the highest risk of injury as they can rupture from the rolling inward and rolling outward movement of the foot.
If you have a mild pain from torn ligament, we recommend wearing MalleoTrain Plus. It provides increased ankle stability through the figure of eight strap system and a viscoelastic gel pad to gently massage the torn ligaments and promote recovery. It also allows full range of motion while recovering from a ligament injury, unlike the MalleoLoc range.
Great product but didn’t fit
Comfortable and protective
I twisted my ankle three times during a few months when hiking down the mountains. A staff recommended this product after hearing my description of the injury. Now I am wearing it when doing hiking and pilates. The extra padding of this product provides comfort and stability to my ankle. I find it very useful in particular during post recovery.
