High Performance X-Fit Ankle Helix
The X-Fit Ankle Helix Compression Sleeve provides comfortable compression for the soft tissues of the ankle. These features are known to be beneficial in prevention of injury and re-injury. Compression is a mainstay in the management of acute ankle injury to provide support and edema management.
Uniform compression is provided to the ankle ligaments, distal Achilles tendons, and proximal plantar foot structures. This Helix unburdens the ankle tendons injured with overuse syndromes or acute sprains and strains.
What is the difference in styles?
The X-Fit Ankle Helix provides support in the “X” or Figure 8 pattern. This pattern is used to support injured tissues typically associated with acute ankle sprain or strain. The X-Fit is advised after acute injury management and has slightly less bulk than the Full Ankle Helix. The Full Ankle Helix provides uniform compression typically desired for acute and chronic injury management and injury prevention and provides support to a larger area of the ankle than the X-Fit. The Full Ankle Helix is generally the product of choice unless less bulk or support is desired. No other compression product can match our Ankle Helixes.

Proper fit is important
It is very important to measure your ankle at the maximum dimension where it will be used in order to get the proper fit. Measure the distance around the ankle, from the heel to the anterior (front) leg. Please do not measure your leg.
If your measurement is in the middle of two sizes you will want the smaller size if you are a lean or muscular athlete and the larger size if you are not lean or muscular.
