Sizing and Technical Information:

All medi supports are designed with functional every day use in mind. The carefully manufactured materials used have achieved the German quality standard award - Oko-Tex standard 100 - and are suitable for those with sensitive skin. All braces wick moisture away from their inner surface to evaporate from the outer surface and have anti-bacterial properties to reduce odour formation. Our testers found this extremely efficient even during long hard training sessions.

They incorporate a clever non slip system with precision weaves to minimise creasing during movement.

Physio Warehouse's therapists advise this brace is an innovative product for those with inflammation or injury of the Achilles Tendon. They particularly liked the removable heel wedges which help to reduce tension and stretch on the Tendo-Achilles and posterior calf during walking and running.
