Thuasne Malleosoft Ankle Brace
If you used to perform light exercise and you're recovering from an ankle injury, you might feel nervous about getting back on your feet. The Thuasne Malleosoft Ankle Brace is a soft ankle sleeve that provides moderate compression at around 17mmHg. This allows you to get the support you need so you're able to resume your normal exercise routine.
Who Can Make Gains with the Malleosoft Ankle Brace?
The Malleosoft is an ideal proprioceptive brace for those who perform light aerobic activities like running, walking and cycling. The support can be worn with most shoes, including most trainers, and is soft against your skin for improved levels of comfort.

Thuasne's Malleosoft Support can be used for:

Soft and Comfortable Sleeve
The Malleosoft has an anatomically shaped weave with a comfort zone around the malleoli. This helps stabilise and support the bony prominences as they are more susceptible to injury since they protrude from the skin. The brace's anatomical shape also helps stabilise and support your ankle throughout use.
Proprioceptors can become impaired following an injury, meaning the body doesn't re-position itself to prevent further trauma. With its elastic compressive weave, the Malleosoft helps improve proprioception to stabilise any instabilities in the area. This is particularly important in the ankle as any balance issues in this area can cause painful falls.
To find which size will fit you best, measure the circumference of your ankle just above the malleolus and consult the table below. You can choose from five different sizes.
