The Achillo-Hit from Sporlastic is designed for the functional treatment and support of Achilles tendonitis and acute achillodynia. The compression bandage restores soft tissue function and improves the positioning of the hindfoot, in particular the calcaneus. The brace helps to reduce non-physiological strain on the Achilles tendon while deliberately not elevating the heel to avoid shortening of the calf muscle.
The silicone pads insole pressure cushion exerts proprioceptive stimuli on the tendon of the posterior tibial muscle and enhances the foot’s pronation control. The silicone pad has a gentle massaging effect and works by stimulating the surrounding tissue, increasing blood flow and accelerating the healing process.
Constructed from an expandable special knitted fabric at the heel allows a practically wrinkle-free fit when rolling the foot and greatly improves comfort when wearing for long periods.
Indications for use:
» Tendonitis/Para tendonitis
» Achillobursitis/Operations for achillobursitis
» Subcalcaneal bursitis, postoperative therapy
» Operations for partial rupture of the Achilles tendon
» Reconstruction of the peroneal retinaculum or the peroneal tendon
» Reconstruction of the tibialis posterior retinaculum or tendon
Features and benefits:
» The special knopped silicone truss pad achieves a compression and massaging effect on the Achilles tendon
» The conscious decision to abandon a heel raiser means that the calf muscles are not contracted
» Restoration of soft tissue function and improved positioning of the hindfoot
» Compression and massage of the Achilles tendon with a large insert made of silicone with raised nodules
