Frequently Asked Questions

What is true medical-grade compression?

The two basic components of true “medical-grade compression” are gradient compression and minimum compression levels.

Gradient compression means the compression is strongest farthest away from the center of the body/heart and slowly loosens as it goes closer to the center of the body.

Medical-grade compression levels are in the “sweet spot” for improving circulation and removing lactic-acid and other fluid build up. Unlike most other 'active wear' and retail compression available in Australia (that are not gradient and provide much lower grade compression), Bauerfeind compression is true medical grade.

What’s the difference between the Performance and Recovery lines?

Both lines offer medical-grade compression and have the same medical benefits of increased healing bloodflow, stability and proprioception.

Sports Supports are ideal for shorter bursts of intense activity (like a workout or a basketball game), whereas Medical Supports are softer and more comfortable for all-day wear.

Sports braces and supports are great for injury prevention, but if you already have an injury you're trying to recover from, we’d recommend going with a Recovery brace or support.

What is proprioception?

Proprioceptors are helped by mechanoreceptors in the skin, which help detect stretch, compression, vibration and pressure. All of these messages come together and are analyzed by your brain, which provides you with a sense of awareness of your body and its movement within space.

Succeeding at your sport relies on your coordination and confidence, and gaining awareness of your body’s movements is essential to improving performance and preventing an injury.

Excellent support for everyday use

I have long term issues with an unstable ankle. This support is excellent, it is not as bulky as some of the others on the market yet still provides a good level of support. Can be worn under socks and foot still fits into shoes.

great ankle brace

the compression feature of the ankle brace sets it apart from others, the straps are a bit loose but last week I wear your ankle brace on one ankle and a cheap imitation on the other. After the football game, had to take the cheap one off as was putting too much pressure on the ankle, i can wear your one all day. has replaced my ankle tapping. Will save me money long term and provide similar support with less hassle. Just need to work on the straps to make them tighter without being too tight

This ankle support far exceeded my expectations! I was sceptical and expecting just a gimmicky bright coloured simple compression sleeve with a strap, and only purchased this ankle support based on blind faith in my physio and her recommendation.

Setting: return to sport and injury-prevention phase, following ankle dislocation on background of hypermobility/ligamentous laxity.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this ankle support has been amazing in several ways:

- Best thing: It actually got rid of swelling and stiffness better than 20-30mmHg or "sports" compression socks.

- It resolved ankle soreness from training (jumping, landing, rebounding, twisting etc).

- It isn't a stirrup/rigid brace so it won't prevent inversion but it gives me enough proprioceptive feedback to make corrections in time.


- It pills a bit

- The bright colour can be distracting and draws attention to the support.
