In order to obtain a greater degree of therapeutic ef- fectiveness in the di erent pathologies and to pro- long the life and utility of the product, it is fundamen- tal that the correct size adequate for each patient or user is chosen (enclosed in the packet is a diagram with all the sizes and the equivalent in centimetres). An excess compression can produce intolerance, therefore we recommend that the compression be regulated to an optimum degree.
To observe the following aspects:
1-Fold out the top of the ankle brace until the Achilles tendon pad is visible.
2-Insert the foot and ensure that the heel is correctly positioned.
3-Fold back the top of the ankle brace.
4-Make sure that the ankle brace is correctly tted
(the seam at the back should be centred with the heel and the Achilles tendon should be positioned between the reliefs of the pad).
Important: Use of the silicone heel cushions is optio- nal. If used, always t both heel cushions to prevent leg-length di erences. When tting, make sure that the flat part is in contact with the insole of the shoe and the concave part is in contact with the foot.
