Applying Your BioSkin TriLok Ankle Ligaments Support

The TriLok ankle support is able to support the foot through a wide variety of conditions.

Lateral Application gives effective support and relief for conditions such as:

  • Lateral ankle sprains (outside of ankle)
  • Peroneal tendon injuries
  • Ankle arthritis

Medial Application provides protection and pain relief for:

  • Medial ankle sprains (inside of ankle): The TriLok provides protection and support to injured ligaments to further prevent injury and reduce pain after a sprain. The FootLok Strap acts as an external ligament.
  • Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD): The TriLok's FootLok Strap pulls the arch up and restores the normal position of the foot. The TriLok is as effective as custom orthotics, but can be worn in almost any shoes or even without shoes.
  • Plantar fasciitis: The TriLok's FootLok Strap lifts the arch to support the plantar fascia and prevent the arch from collapsing. It may also be worn as a light night splint to keep tension on the plantar fascia overnight.

What The Experts Say

We spoke to product experts at Beagle Orthotics for more details about the Bioskin TriLok Ankle Brace. Here's what they shared with us:

"The TriLok Ankle Brace is a slim fit design consisting of 3 components; TriLok Undersleeve, Stirrup strap and FootLokTM strap, which mimics the natural tendons in the foot to secure the ankle and allow for a safe range of motion. The TriLok is an easy, effective way to relieve the debilitating pain caused by plantar fasciitis and PTTD and also provides unrivalled protection."

How Do I Correctly Fit My TriLok Support?

The TriLok Ankle Brace offers incredible support and compression at the ankle, heel and foot when fitted correctly. Fitting is done in three stages, all of which are detailed below.

Undersleeve Fitting

The undersleeve is designed to prevent chaffing, rubbing and irritation. Simply slip the sleeve over your foot and fasten down using the two straps located in the ankle area.

Fitting Your BioSkin Undersleeve

FootLok Strap

We recommend taking some time when fitting the "FootLok" strap. Attach and circle the white strap over the centre of the foot before fastening it down at the point detailed in image F.

The "FootLok strap" circles the arch, providing arch support and relief from plantar fasciitis.

Fitting Your BioSkin FootLok Strap

Stirrup Strap

The stirrup strap is the final section. This strap loops around the heel and underneath the foot to bolster support underneath, at the back and across the top of the foot.

Fitting Your Stirrup Strap

How Will It Increase the Rate of Recovery?

The BioSkin TriLok Ankle Support will increase the rate of recovery because it controls the inversion and eversion of the ankle, while using a special strap that simulates an external ligament. This helps to take the pressure of your ankle ligaments meaning that your ankle has the space and time that it needs to recover.

Will it Reduce Pain in My Foot and Ankle?

Users have reported feeling a decreased level of pain once their ankle has got used to living with the BioSkin Support. This is because all of the pressure of walking, jumping and running has been taken from your ankle and onto the brace, allowing the pain to be significantly reduced.

In fact the BioSkin TriLok Support has given users with long term ankle problems significant pain relief, while those post surgery can quickly get back on their feet again.

Can I Wear the TriLok Brace on Either Ankle?

Absolutely. The BioSkin TriLok Ankle Support is an ambidextrous brace that can be worn on either ankle to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with either inward or outward rolling of the ankle.

The application method remains the same and does not change depending on which side you wear your brace on.

How Does the BioSkin TriLok Ankle Support Work?

The way the BioSkin TriLok works is quite complex, but its goal is to create another ligament so that pressure is taken away from your ankle and on to your feet. Its patented FootLok strap serves this purpose, controlling the movement of the forefoot without compromising on the range of your foot. By keeping your ankle protected and well positioned, you can run, walk and jump safe in the knowledge that your ankle is well on its way to recovery.

How Do I Fit the TriLok Ankle Support?

Depending on the place of your injury you fit the Ankle Support slightly differently. The two different types of positioning for the brace are lateral (the side of the body that is away from the middle), and the medial (the side of the body that is away from the body). Please note that the brace shouldn't be fit too tightly as this can lead to discomfort.

BioSkin TriLok Ankle Brace

Can I Wear the Ankle Ligaments Support with Socks and Shoes?

We recommend that you wear the TriLok Ankle Support with socks as this can relieve discomfort on your skin. Once you've fitted the Ankle Support you should be able to wear shoes quite comfortably over the top of the Ankle Brace with the top of it circulating your ankle.

How Comfortable is the Ankle Ligament Support to Wear?

Although your ankle can take a little while to get used to the support, once fit properly it will provide excellent pain relief to both minor and major injuries. It is ergonomically designed to fit around the foot and ensure a high level of comfort, suitable for all day use.

BioSkin TriLok Ankle Brace

The BioSkin Support is designed to give a compressed fit that allows for full support, which for some wearers this may feel strange or uncomfortable at first. If you find yourself between sizes it is recommended that you select the larger size unless you desire a tighter fit. Furthermore it is recommended that you don't strap your support too tight as this can lead to discomfort.

Will I Retain Dexterity in My Foot?

It's designed to support your foot and take the pressure off the ankle however this will not compromise the amount of dexterity that you required. In fact the scope of your foot isn't limited at all, and because of the pain relief it means you'll experience more freedom than you would do not wearing the support.

Once fitted the core of the Ligament Support will sit above your shoe, ensuring you can continue using your foot as if healthy.

Can I Wear the Ankle Support While Playing Sport?

The BioSkin Ankle Support offers excellent dexterity, meaning that if you want to play sport you can. We would recommend, however, that you only do so if you a mild ankle injury, or mild ongoing ankle pain, rather than a more serious break or ongoing problem.

BioSkin TriLok Ankle Brace

Is the BioSkin Ankle Support Lightweight?

You might be wondering if you can feel the weight of the Ankle Ligament Brace on your ankle while you are walking. This isn't the case as it is extremely light to hold to the point where you won't feel it when it's on your leg. This is ideal for using the Ankle Support across a day without it becoming uncomfortable on your leg.

Is the BioSkin TriLok Support Discreet to Wear?

The TriLok Support is part below your shoe part above it, and if you are wearing shorts or shorter jeans then the top of the support will be visible. However it is a discreet and subtle black colour and very aesthetic, meaning that you won't feel conscious wearing the support.

Is the BioSkin TriLok Waterproof?

The Bioskin TriLok is designed to be washed after use. It reacts well to fresh water, and is suitable for providing support across a range of different water sports. However, we can't guarantee it's effectiveness in salt water as salt water is known to degrade materials.

Such a relief
13 February 2023  | 

I am 75 and had been suffering with chronic post tibial tendonitis. At times I found it almost impossible to walk without excruciating pain. Within 5 days of using the brace I had greatly reduced pain and was able to walk more easily. There is no doubt that this brace has accellerated my healing. I am so grateful to the ingenious person/team who invented this. Proper magic!

This is an excellent product. Having been sidelined with tib post / mtss issues for months and unable to run, this support has cleared up any pain within days and greatly reduced the pronation that was irritating and prolonging the injury. With a little practice, I've found it's easy to put on / take off and easily adjustable. I haven't found any problems with durability yet and have been wearing the support each day for weeks now. Combined with strengthening exercises, I feel this support is giving me the platform to return to running soon, something I had more or less given up on. Delighted with the purchase.

Very comfortable but complicated to put on and off. It will take time to get used to
doing this. Also problems with different bits of velcro getting stuck to each other.
Have not been using the support for long enough yet to determine how effective it is for my problem.

I have a chronic posterior tibia tendinitis so bought this product hoping it would help my walking. At first I read the instructions and the brace was uncomfortable- then I watched the video and with correct application it has made such a difference . I walked 6 miles a few days ago. Thatís double what I could previously walk . So brilliant I highly recommend this support - fitted properly !
