Speeds-Up Recovery Time
The Donjoy Strapilax provides targeted compression to your injured ankle to increase blood flow and encourage healing. The elastic strap holds your ankle in a stable position, stopping it from rolling and getting injured further while also increasing pressure on tender areas.
The Donjoy Strapilax can be adjusted using the elastic strap. Immediately following an injury, you may want to wear the strap tighter for more compression to ensure swelling and pain is reduced quickly. As your ankle heals, you can then gradually loosen the strap to give your ankle more breathing room to start healing.
Anatomically Contoured Padding
Designed to fit comfortably over the malleoli, the Donjoy Ankle Support has padded inserts that help protect, stabilise and relieve ankle pain. The lightweight ankle pads feature 24 stimulating nubs that increase blood flow as you move to soothe soreness, reduce swelling and encourage healing.
Designed to fit anatomically, the Donjoy Strapilax Support hugs your ankle to ensure both comfort and stability are at maximum. Featuring biocompatible yarn to prevent allergic reactions, the support won't cause you to itch or break out in a rash like other medical supports would.
