Thuasne Silistab Malleo Ankle Support
Suffering from pain in your malleoli (i.e. the bones on each side of your ankle) can be debilitating, particularly since the bones protrude and therefore chafe against your socks and shoes. The Thuasne Silistab Malleo Ankle Support helps protect the malleoli and compresses the whole of your ankle.
Who Can Make Gains with the Malleo Ankle Support?
If you've fractured your malleolus in the past and still suffer from occasional pain as a result, this can make it difficult to concentrate on playing sports. The Thuasne Malleo Ankle Support has been designed to protect your malleoli from unwanted discomfort and is ideal when you're just beginning to resume activities following an injury to the area.
Unlike other supports, the Silistab Malleo is anatomically shaped so it doesn't restrict your movement too much yet it's still able to provide firm compression to your ankle. This also means it can be worn with most shoes, including trainers or football boots.
