The MalleoTrain S provides active support and stability to the ankle joint, protecting against sprains and lateral twisting.
An adjustable strap system, fastened in a figure-of-eight pattern, is used to improve movement control and ensure stabilisation of the ankle joint. The strapping system begins at the base of the foot and pulls the midfoot inwards, to prevent lateral twisting. The strength of the strap can be adjusted continuously by tightening the elastic section of the strap.
The MalleoTrain S features a breathable fabric, for optimal all day comfort, and delivers medical grade compression to increase blood flow to the ankle joint, helping reduce inflammation.
We recommend using the MalleoTrain S for everyday wear, and the Sports Ankle Support during physical activity.

The main difference between Malleotrain Ankle Support and Malleotrain S Ankle Support is the presence of the semi-elastic strap system present in Malleotrain S which functions as taping for the ankle. This aids in providing pain relief for Grade 1 and Grade 2 ankle sprains. Malleotrain, on the other hand, provides active support to the ankle tendons through the two viscoelastic pads. Malleotrain is best for preventing sprains and relapses. It is advisable for osteoarthritis patients as it improves proprioception and prevents injuries.
The main difference between the two supports is the open heel area present in Malleotrain S Open Support. This increases the floor contact, improving the feeling of contact with the ground. Thus, it's beneficial for enjoying activities such as gymnastics, dancing, yoga and martial arts.
Pain in the heel is caused due to inflammation of the plantar fascia tissue in the foot which can radiate further to the ankle joint, causing ankle pain. It's important to treat the heel pain, commonly known as plantar fasciitis, first. We recommend wearing foot insoles to treat plantar fasciitis condition. To support the ankle and provide pain relief, we recommend wearing Malleotrain S. It provides support to the ankle joint similar to taping.
Whilst nature has built sturdiness into the ankle, supination or overpronation (bending of the foot in the wrong direction) by just a few millimetres can cause a sprain. The chances of relapse of an injury increase if your level of activity is high and if you’ve experienced a sprain before. To prevent ankle sprain injury, we recommend wearing Malleotrain or Malleotrain S for active support and stabilisation of the ankle joint. The graded compression provided in Malleotrain S aids in lactic acid elimination which is one of the causes of spraining.
Great support for my ankle also comfy and easy to put on. Will be trying other supports from this company
My ankle feels so supported. The pain behind ankle in shin disappears when wearing it. I walk every every day and it allows me to continue doing so. Really grateful.
