The Ultimate Performance® Advanced Ultimate Compression Ankle Support provides a staged progressive level of support above that of the UP5155 Ankle Support already in the range. The Advanced model provides level 3 support and has also been specifically designed utilising a seamless circular knit to provide compressive support to unstable ankles. This can assist with rehabilitation and recovery from load related pain, moderate ligament and tendon injuries.
The critical addition to the Advanced model is the cross-over adjustable strap system which is fully adjustable and allows for additional targeted support. This allows compression to be applied at target or trigger points, whilst also ensuring a comprehensive personalised fit.
Although thinner than neoprene the compressive design offers a high level of support and is ideal for who are allergic to or dislike the bulk and heat generation of neoprene.
The breathable, compressive 4-way stretch of the material targets support to the area's most requiring it, mimicking the support and action planes of key ligaments and tendons.
The compressive element also stimulate blood flow which can help prevent the build-up of lactic acid during and post activity. This helps to reduce cramp and stiffness whilst also being a valuable recovery tool after injury.
Recommended for: weak, stiff or aching ankles, mild sprains, strain and tendonitis.
