Bauerfeind MalleoLoc Ankle Brace
MalleoLoc is an anatomically self-shaping stabilizing orthosis that can be used in the immediate care and treatment of ankle injuries. After serious twisting injuries, torn ligaments and capsular ligament strains, it stabilizes the ankle and protects it from lateral twisting. The normal heel-to-toe movement of the foot is still possible and the support can be worn therapeutically without a shoe.
- Anatomically self-shaping
- Low-fatigue cushioning
- stimulates the tibialis anterior muscle
STABILITY OF THE ANKLE-BONE
The MalleoLoc stabilizing orthosis is anatomically contoured to conform to the outside edge of the foot and includes a strap system. It fits snugly on the foot and passes forwards along the side of the joint and then underneath the sole, leaving the heel free. It thus counteracts both talar shift and lateral twisting of the foot. The musculature of the ankle is actively stabilized. As well as acute care, this orthosis can be thermoplastically shaped to the individual anatomy of the foot and used for stabilization in chronic cases of ligament weakness.
STIMULATING EFFECT ON THE TIBIALIS ANTERIOR MUSCLE
Under the sole on the outer edge of the foot there is a tongue-shaped protrusion, which stimulates the musculature, and in particular the tibialis anterior, thus reinforcing the stabilizing and mobilizing effects of the orthosis. This firstly provides effective protection against further injuries, and secondly means that the MalleoLoc can also be successfully used as part of the early functional treatment of capsular ligament strain and outer malleolus ligament injuries.
COMFORTABLE IN EVERYDAY LIFE
MalleoLoc fits snugly on the foot and can be worn without difficulty in almost any sturdy shoe. It retains its therapeutic effectiveness even without a shoe and protects against lateral twisting movements. The clip mechanism of the Velcro® strap system reinforces the tensile force and makes it easier to put on. The special low-fatigue cushioning increases wearing comfort.
Indications for Use:
- Early functional treatment for injuries of the lateral malleolar ligaments (and the bifurcate ligaments)
- Capsular ligament strains
- Postoperative rehabilitation
- Chronic ligament insufficiency
