PRODUCT DETAILS

Product Uses

The X-Fit Ankle Helix provides compression in an “X” or figure “8” pattern design that fits comfortably inside your shoe and provides support to your injured ankle ligaments. It also takes pressure off sensitive ankle tendons which may have been injured from overuse or acute strains.  It is the product of choice for those who want support for the ankle joint itself with as little material in their shoe as possible.  

This Helix is an indispensable product for your “toolbox” if you have ever suffered from an ankle strain or sprain, since wearing ankle compression post-injury has been shown through research to reduce re-injuries through increased proprioception – your bodies ability to know where it is in space. 

For those suffering from Achilles Tendonitis that is concentrated in the lowest portion of the tendon or from mild plantar fasciitis, the X-Fit Ankle Helix can provide warmth and support to your connective tissue, making it slightly more pliable and easing the pain associated with movement.   

If you have arthritis of the ankle joint, this is a comfortable, easy-to-use product to help manage your pain.

 

What is the difference in styles?

The X-Fit Ankle Helix provides support in an “X” or figure “8” pattern, covering the areas that are most often associated with a ligament sprain or tendon strain of the ankle joint.  It is the preferred product for those who want as little material in their shoe as possible.

The Full Ankle Helix is a sock-like sleeve with slips over your foot and ankle, covering the entirety of your ankle joint as well as the arch of your foot and much of your Achilles tendon. It is the preferred product for those who have plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, or swelling of the ankle

 

Proper fit is important

Please measure the circumference of your ankle, from your heel diagonally crossing the front of your ankle where it bends and going around and back to your heel.  See the diagram for a picture.  Please do not measure your lower leg.  Please do not order based on shoe size. 

 

Which size should I order if I am in between sizes?  

In general, leaner athletes prefer the smaller size.  All others prefer the larger size.

Ankle Wrap X Fit

I bought this for my 19 years old daughter when she plays tennis. Her foot is slightly pronated and playing on hard courts will strain her feet. The first time she wore them she felt support that she had not experienced before. Now she wears them to the gym and just about everywhere. They are thin and comfortable enough to wear with her "cute" shoes too. I'm getting her a second pair.

Great product that shows immediate results

I've been using Body Helix products for my ankles for a few years now. They were especially helpful in helping me manage pain as I recovered from some bad ankle injuries a few years ago. I thought I had fully recovered but after recently taking up running, some of my ankle soreness returned.

I ordered a new ankle support (since I'd lost my previous one) and voila! The pain was immediately better after subsequent runs. The difference is immediately noticeable.

One issue I do have sometimes is due to having a broad foot, the tightness of the product can cause some discomfort on the side of the foot during long runs. TBC - this is just discomfort (like having an extra thick sock) rather than pain. It's a bit annoying but definitely worth the tradeoff of being pain-free on my recovery days.

It also helps me feel a better not using a use-and-throw product like kinesio tapes.

Working hard

The compression wrap holds my ankle perfectly. It swells, but is held so that no discomfort exists.

COMPRESSION GUIDE

All our compression products have two options available: Max Compression and Ultra Light. What’s the difference?

MAX COMPRESSION 3.0

MAX Compression is what we are known for. It comes in a variety of colors and is slightly thicker at 3.0mm in thickness. MAX excels in preventive support and active injury management alike.

ULTRA-LIGHT 2.0

Ultra-Light Compression is slightly thinner at 2.0mm in thickness making it perfect for preventative support. Ultra-Light only comes in the marine blue.

Stretch and Elasticity

We refer to this as Form Fit Technology. Body Helix believes the highest quality compression products can only be made with the highest quality material. We use a high-tech material that has more stretch and more elasticity than any other compression products on the market today. It stretches far more than the human body, allowing for full range of motion of any joint on which it is placed. Just as important, it also has far superior elasticity, allowing it to rebound as fast the joint or muscle and ensuring that it will always remain in contact with your body as you move, no matter how quickly and explosively.

Uniform medical-grade compression

Body Helix believes in form and function. Not only must our products look good, they must provide the most effective level of uniform compression for injury prevention and injury management, because we are committed to the science of keeping athletes active and helping them to Move Through It. We offer two levels of medical-grade compression. Our Max Weight firm medical grade 1 compression at 20-30mmHg and our Ultra-Light 2.0 moderate medical-grade 1 compression at 15-20mmHg. The incredible stretch and elasticity of our high-tech material coupled with our moisture activated adherence means that our compression sleeves do not need straps to keep them in place and can provide you with a uniform compression throughout.

Proprioception

Proprioception is a body perception or awareness of position (where it is in space) and movement (where it is going in space). Proprioception encompasses three different aspects - Agility, Balance, and Coordination (the ABCs). The brain uses all three of the ABCs to help enable you to move more efficiently and to help protect you from injury while you are in motion. Current findings suggest that compression sleeves and wraps increase proprioception due to added points of sensory input. Body Helix uses the highest quality material to make sleeves and wraps that provide a uniform compression, increasing your sensory input and thus your proprioception, and enabling you to Move Through It more efficiently and with fewer injuries.

Machine Wash and Dry

Body Helix believes that the highest quality compression products can only be made using the highest quality material. Our high tech material likes to be clean, just like you. The closed cell synthetic rubber does not absorb any odors or bacteria, but the outside material can. So, please wash it frequently - every time you wear it if possible. You can wear it right into the shower and wash it with soap and water, wash it in the sink with soap and water, or put it in the washing machine. And, if you are wearing it regularly, make sure you put it in the dryer on medium heat at least once a week, more if you would like. The more you wash it, the longer it will last. So, please wash it regularly.
