The ViscoHeel heel cushion provides a soft cushion for the heel and offers instant relief for acute heel pain.
The soft heel cushion absorbs shock loads on the ankle, knee, and hip. This relief reduces pain above the heel, such as when the Achilles tendon is inflamed and a 'pump bump' forms. Or, in cases of osteoarthritis of the knee and hip.
The ViscoHeel protects the joints and spine, as well as the tendons and ligaments, with every step.
- Anatomically shaped for a secure fit and freedom of movement

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.
