During everyday movements and minor sporting activities, the MalleoLoc L3 protects the unstable ankle and prevents recurring sprains. Its special feature: the orthosis can be adjusted in its protective function, meaning it can supplement multi-stage treatment or support patients with chronic conditions who sometimes need more, sometimes less stabilization. Since its plastic shell is positioned exclusively on the side of the lateral malleolus (side of the ankle facing away from the body), it is particularly slim. Therefore, the orthosis fits in narrow shoes.
The MalleoLoc L3 must be worn in shoes to stabilize the ankle. The integrated support and the shell fitted on one side are anatomically shaped. Together, they are so slim that the orthosis fits in sports shoes and even business shoes. The inside of the shell is soft and comfortably padded, and features an easy-care microfiber top cover.

Sizing, How it Works
A perfect fit means faster recovery and improved performance. You will need to measure your ankle with a measuring tape.
Measure the circumference of your ankle at its narrowest point.
MalleoLoc L3 should feel snug and firm but not constrictive. All Bauerfeind ankle braces have a 1 year warranty and qualify for our 30 day size exchange policy.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you walk with a torn ligament in your ankle?
The ankle has three lateral ligaments on the outside which are likely to get injured due to the foot rolling inwards or outwards. The deltoid ligament is the main ligament present inside the ankle. Overuse of the ankle joint can cause a painful ligament tear. Lateral ligaments are at the highest risk of injury as they can rupture from the rolling inward and rolling outward movement of the foot. For conservative treatment, we recommend wearing Malleoloc L3 for lateral stabilisation of the ankle and Malleoloc for stabilisation of the medial ligament of the ankle. The Malleoloc range provides a high degree of stabilisation through the plastic shell. It immobilises the ankle joint to promote healing of the ruptured ligament. Whilst one can walk with a torn ligament, it’s is not recommended. Seek professional medical advice.
