The AchilloTrain Ankle Support alleviates pain, swelling and soreness in the lower Achilles tendon. Designed and made in Germany, it provides active support whether you're resting at home, moving about at work or breaking a sweat on the sports field. As a unique Achilles ankle support, it's great for tendonitis, post-op recovery and swelling management.

The AchilloTrain Ankle Support works by gently raising the heel with a gel cushion to reduce strain on the tendon, while using a viscoelastic gel pad to massage and soothe the inflamed area. In addition to this, high medical-grade compression acts to stabilise the muscles, increase blood-flow to the area and minimise fatigue.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best ankle brace for treating pain in the Achilles tendon?

The Achilles tendon is located on the back of the lower leg, connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. We recommend wearing the AchilloTrain to treat Achilles tendon problems such as:

  • Achillodynia is the condition where the Achilles tendon is painful due to the inflammation of the Achilles tendon (Achilles tendinitis/ tendinosis or paratendinitis).
  • Achilles bursa (Achilles tendon bursitis).
  • Chronic pain in the Achilles tendon that is caused due to rupturing of the Achilles tendon, microtears in the Achilles area or post-operation.

What is the difference between Achillotrain and the Achillotrain Pro?

For Achilles pain located towards the heel we recommend using either the AchilloTrain or the AchilloTrain Pro. For pain located further up the Achilles tendon we recommend using the AchilloTrain Pro.

The AchilloTrain has a tendon pad which runs alongside the Achilles tendon which provides a massaging effect for pain relief. It also includes an integrated heel cushion, providing a slight lift to the heel, which can aid with pain relief.

The AchilloTrain Pro, on the other hand, has a butterfly-shaped viscoelastic pad with nodules that run across the Achilles tendon extending up to the calf muscles. The nodules provide a frictional massage which accelerate the healing process by improving blood circulation as well as providing pain relief.

What is a good ankle brace for Haglunds deformity?

Haglund’s deformity is a condition where the bone at the back of the heel enlarges. When the bony enlargement rubs against the shoe surface on a daily basis, it irritates the Achilles tendon. This causes inflammation and pain of the bursa (a fluid-filled sac which cushions the ankle bone and tendon) known as ankle bursitis.

We recommend wearing the AchilloTrain to relieve the pain. If your ankle pain spreads through to the calf muscles, we recommend using the AchilloTrain Pro for extended support up to the calf muscle.

Do you provide an extra heel cushion for the unaffected leg?

Yes, we provide a separate heel cushion for the unaffected leg to offset the length difference caused by the integrated viscoelastic heel wedge in the AchilloTrain.

Helped ease the pain

After wearing The AchilloTrain Ankle Support, I can comfortably say that this product did exactly that! Offer support to my Achilles as I am having a flare-up with Achilles Tendinitis. I've had this issue for months now and the pain can be quite debilitating. But I have seen improvement in the pain since wearing The AchilloTrain Ankle Support. Before wearing this support, the daily pain level fluctuated from a 7-9 but now most days its a manageable 2-4, and the pain comes and goes, not constant as it previously was. The only thing is that I measured my ankle at the narrowest part and based the size of my purchase on what they suggest would be the right fit, but I should have bought the size down to make it a more snug fit as the heavy material is stretchy. But if one suffers from oedema as I do, then the larger size accommodates for those times the oedema occurs. I was impressed by the quality as this product is very well made and feels like a more expensive support, whereas I have purchased other support items that were similar in price, and they are flimsy and lightweight by comparison. It seems a product of this quality has been developed based on medical studies and clinical findings, as the results I have experienced speak for themselves. Therefore, I have no hesitation in recommending this product. It has been well worth the investment.

Hi Michelle, thanks for leaving such a detailed review! We are so glad to hear the AchilloTrain ankle support is helping you manage your Achilles tendonitis pain to such an extent. Its medical-grade compression knit and Achilles pads make it great for supporting the ankle and managing the pain and inflammation that often accompany the condition. Regarding sizing, it can be tricky to get it right, especially if you sit between two sizes. It's good to hear the brace accommodates your oedema. But if you'd like a more snug fit, don't hesitate to reach out to our team on 1300 668 466. We hope all is well and wish you a speedy recovery. Cheers :)
