The comfort of the sleeve around the ankle joints is provided by the round structure of the bamboo fibres which are non-irritating and don't crease when worn. The product helps to support and protect the joints and surrounding soft tissue during activity and exercise. 

The unique composition and intricate weaving techniques used in the production of the ankle sleeve help apply a comfortable yet critical level of compression. The yarn also has a cross section filled with micro gaps which allows the fabric to breath and eliminate sweat build up during use like running, all while continuing to provide you support while being worn. 

Bamboo charcoal supports have been scientifically proven to increase blood flow by 40% more than ordinary supports. Enhancing performance while dramatically decreasing your recovery and rehabilitation periods. TTRI 2006

When can I use the ankle sleeves?

The ankle joint is vital in almost any form of activity like running and walking and for those suffering with sprained ankles, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, achilleas tendon issues or arthritis which without support and compression can cause discomfort and pain.

The Bearhug ankle supports provides walkers, runners and athletes with an effective way to support their foot, heel and lower calf during activity. The compression also increases blood flow and which reduces aches, pains, inflammation and swelling from achilles tendon, arthritis, running and sprain injuries.

The Bearhug bamboo ankle support provides compression to the lower leg and achilles tendon increasing blood flow, enhancing performance, assisting with rehabilitation and recovery from running, walking while providing pain relief for conditions like sprained ankles, tendonitis and arthritis which can come from running and walking. 

The ankle support can be used to support the joint after injuries like sprains, achilles tendon strains and foot injuries with the bamboo properties increasing blood flow. The compression provided by the support helps protect the joint and surrounding soft tissue from impact, strains and sprain injuries during activities like football, rugby, tennis and running. 

Some sports & activities that ankle sleeves can be useful for:

  • Running 
  • Walking
  • MMA
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Rugby
  • Triathlon
  • Gymnastics
  • Weightlifting

      How do the ankle supports work?

      Bearhug use bamboo charcoal in a unique composition within their ankle sleeves. Bamboo charcoal supports have been scientifically proven to increase blood flow through the joint and achilles tendon compared to ordinary supports.

      This increased blood flow drives oxygenated blood to the ankle joint flushing out any toxins in the foot which helps your ligaments, tendons and soft tissue repair quicker while providing pain relief and reducing inflammation and swelling from activities like running, walking or ankle sprains.

      Walked up Haystacks in 27 degrees, Bearhugs comfy to walk in, hardly any aches in my ankles after walking all day wish I'd had them years ago

      Thanks for the review John! Welcome to the Pack.

      Achilles tendinitis

      Ive been struggling with AT in my left Achilles particularly, but from time to time, both flare up, I have tried massage guns and calf sleeves which helped when running, but arent the most practical for the gym / crossfit. So I decided to try these out - first session I got to use them in involved, double unders (fancy skipping) and some 400m runs - zero pain in either Achilles, no pain after or the next day. I am around a week or so in to using them on days where there are specific exercises which would give me some pain, and all is going well so far, so I am hoping that this is a sign of things to come. Great product and service from the site too!

      Love the review Andrew, Welcome to the Pack!
      Glad we could help.

      Help sprained ankle

      I bought a pair of these supports for each ankle. 1 ankle is weak after an old dislocation and the other is a bad sprain that happened 2 months ago. The supports are comfortable and don’t rub whilst walking. I’m still due to try them on longer walks, but so far so good. The reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that they don’t give me the full support required whilst doing yoga. I might be expecting a bit much as they’re great otherwise and help with any pain.
