Orthesis is made of two thermoplastic shells, anatomically shaped up to outline of the external and internal malleolus. Inside, the shells are fitted with soft lining membrane and foam or gel with cooling and warming effect. Both of parts are plantar taped together. The tape can be adjusted up to the width of the extremity. The fixation to the ankle is ensured by two circular tapes. Indisputable advantage of the product is its real variability without necessary measurement of sizes. It is suitable for wearing of leisure shoes as well.
