The X-Fit Ankle Helix compression sleeve unburdens tendons injured from overuse, provides uniform support for ankle sprains, and provides warmth to arthritic ankle joints.
The X-Fit Ankle Helix provides compression in an “X” or figure “8” pattern design that fits comfortably inside your shoe and provides support to your injured ankle ligaments. It also takes pressure off sensitive ankle tendons which may have been injured from overuse or acute strains. It is the product of choice for those who want support for the ankle joint itself with as little material in their shoe as possible.
This Helix is an indispensable product for your “toolbox” if you have ever suffered from an ankle strain or sprain, since wearing ankle compression post-injury has been shown through research to reduce re-injuries through increased proprioception – your bodies ability to know where it is in space.
For those suffering from Achilles Tendonitis that is concentrated in the lowest portion of the tendon or from mild plantar fasciitis, the X-Fit Ankle Helix can provide warmth and support to your connective tissue, making it slightly more pliable and easing the pain associated with movement.
If you have arthritis of the ankle joint, this is a comfortable, easy-to-use product to help manage your pain.
