Who Can Make Gains with the Bauerfeind CaligaLoc Ankle Brace?
The CaligaLoc Brace offers round-the-clock protection against strains and prevents the ankle from twisting outwards, which makes it perfect for recovery, as well as a conservative alternative to surgery. Among other things, it can be used as:
- Conservative treatment of torn ankle ligaments
- Postoperative protection after ligamental suturing or reconstruction
- Temporary stabilisation for post-traumatic tarsal sinus syndrome (injury of the back of the foot)
- Temporary stabilisation for instability of the subtalar joint (back of the foot)
- Permanent stabilisation for chronic instability of the upper and/or lower ankle when surgery is not an option
How Can This Brace Help with My Injury?
Ankle injury is common, especially in sports as a result of the sudden changes of direction, which are a big part of football, basketball, tennis, and other sporting activities. Making sure that you recover properly from this can be tricky, as your ankles are weak and more susceptible to re-injury. Without anything to hold them in place, you run the risk of twisting your ankle and potentially exacerbating your existing injury.
The CaligaLoc Ankle Brace ensures that your recovery is a speedy, drama-free process. Combining a cushioned plastic splint and an adjustable strapping with a simple Velcro system, the support relieves the ankle ligaments and keeps the ankle joint stable to prevent unwanted movement.
In Which Shoes Can I Wear the CaligaLoc Brace?
The CaligaLoc Brace features an anatomical shape that fits closely to your foot, and consists of a cushioned plastic splint fastened securely to the foot with straps using Velcro fastening. You can wear it in your normal everyday shoes, but also without shoes as a postural support inside the home, or as a night-time support.
Does the CaligaLoc Brace Restrict Movement?
Yes, the purpose of the CaligaLoc Brace is to partially immobilise your ankle, which makes it perfect for recovery from an injury or surgery. The brace guarantees optimum wearing comfort until a greater degree of mobility is possible.
Can I Play Sports While Wearing This Ankle Brace?
The Bauerfeind CaligaLoc Ankle Brace is designed as a conservative treatment when recovering from an injury or surgery. Due to its immobilisation properties, this brace isn't the best option for active recovery.
How Is the CaligaLoc Ankle Brace Constructed?
This anatomically designed brace consists of a plastic splint, fastened to the foot using Velcro fastening. Under the heel, a slight raising of the outer edge tilts the foot inwards, so that the outer ankle ligaments are relieved.
Inward tilting of the foot relieves outer ankle ligaments
How Adjustable is the CaligaLoc Ankle Brace?
Flat micro-Velcro fastening system is used to adjust the level of support. Moreover, the stability element can be reshaped thermoplastically if the individual anatomy of the foot requires it.
