X-Fit Ankle Compression Wrap Uses
Our Body Helix X-Fit Ankle Helix Compression Wrap provides comfortable support and compression for the soft tissues of the ankle which suffer from a weakness caused by injury. Our ankle supports are known to be beneficial in the prevention of ankle injuries and in avoiding re-injury of the ankle. Compression support is a mainstay in the management of an acute ankle injury to provide support and edema management.
This Body Helix compression wrap provides uniform compression to the ankle ligaments, distal Achilles tendons and proximal plantar foot structures. This ankle support unburdens the ankle tendons injured with acute ankle sprains, strains and overuse syndromes.
What is the difference in styles?
The X-Fit Ankle Compression Wrap provides support in the “X” or figure of 8 pattern. This pattern is used to support injured tissues typically associated with acute ankle sprains or strains. The X-Fit is advised after acute ankle 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 ankle injury management and injury prevention. It provides support to a larger area of the ankle than the X-Fit. The Full Ankle Helix is generally the compression support of choice unless less bulk or support is desired. No other compression support can match our Ankle Helix. View our blog to learn about the scientific evidence supporting the use of our product.
A proper fit is important
It is very important to measure your ankle at the maximum diameter of where it will be used in order to get the proper fit for your ankle support. 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.
