The Levamed ankle support comes with silicone pads and a tension strap. The compressive fabric and silicone inserts have a massage effect which promotes circulation and aids rapid reduction of haematomas and oedema. Furthermore it improves proprioception and therefore achieves better muscular support (stabilisation of the ankle).

- Diseases or injuries of the skin in the area of use, especially with inflammatory symptoms (excessive warming, swelling or reddening)
- Sensitivity and perfusion disorders of the legs or feet (e.g. in the case of diabetes)
- Lymph outflow disorders, as well as unclear swellings of soft tissues, apart from the area of use
Any combination with other products (e.g. compression stockings) must be discussed in advance with the responsible doctor.
