An Ankle Binder supports, compresses, and partially immobilises the injured ankle to control pain, edema, and inflammation following an ankle injury or sprain. The compression sleeve and elasticated strap are both attached to the binder, which fits with precision and adapts to the ankle's anatomy. 

Any ankle discomfort can be alleviated with this ankle binder. A circular loom is used to make both the elastic wrap and the compression sleeve of this ankle support. 

The figure of the eight locking design provides medial and lateral support to the ankle and prevents twist injuries. The elastic loop technology ensures a perfect fit. To extend the life of the material, the loop elastic is coated and finished with a special process to make it more durable.

The Ankle binder helps in the following ways:

  1. Ankle braces can prevent sprains, inflammations, or edema.
  2. Even after long-term use, they ease knee movement.
  3. In addition to improving ankle stability, they also provide pain relief.
  4. You can use it as post-surgical support for fractures.
  5. Subtalar and talocrural joints can be soothed with this product.
  6. Ankle joints can be further protected from twisting when equipped with such devices.

When Should One Use It

For the treatment of ankle pain, acute ankle injuries, ankle sprains, ankle strains, swelling in the ankle, sports injuries and other conditions causing pain and discomfort in the ankle, this ankle support belt is a perfect choice.

How to measure

  1. To know your size, sit comfortably and lay your foot on a low stool.
  2. Measure the ankle by wrapping a measuring tape above.
  3. Take a reading with the tape measure held flat against the body.

Care Instructions

Types Of Ankle Binders

Vissco Next has two ankle binders available, and both give different support features. They are:

  • Ankle Binder

This ankle binder provides mild support and can be wrapped into an eight-figure shape. It provides support in case of sprained or swollen ankles and is also effective for ligament or sports injuries. The ankle binder comes in two sizes standard( S, M, L) and special (XL, XXL). This binder gives mild support.

  • Ankler 

This ankle support is an upgraded version of the ankle binder and comes with an ankler that looks like a sock and binder. It provides moderate support and stability to the Ankle. It's available in S, M, L, XL, and XXL. To wear it, wrap the straps into a figure-of-eight shape and pull the ankler like a sock. Lock the straps and tighten as desired.
