Q. Can I wear this product with shoes/Will it fit in shoes?
A. Yes. It can be worn with or without shoes.
Q. Should I wear socks under the product?
A. Not thick socks, although hosiery/stockings are o.k. MalleoTrain should be worn against the skin for the maximum massage and compression effect. A sock can be worn over the support.
Q. Why do they come in left and right versions?
A. The left and right ankle are anatomically different. Therefore, they require differently shaped supports for optimal fit and therapy. MalleoTrain also has 2 silicone inserts that are shaped differently to accommodate the inside and outside of the ankle bones. The silicone on the inside is thicker and shorter to fill in the more concave area on this side of the ankle bone.
Q. Will it stabilize the ankle?
A. MalleoTrain's main function is to provide compression and massage to decrease pain and swelling. The knit also promotes proprioception (knowing where your body is in space) so in that respect it increases natural stabilization. However, it is not designed to prevent ankle sprains/strains. MalleoLoc is our ankle stabilizing product.
