Levamed ankle support
- Comfort Zone over the instep area
- Breathable sole
Levamed® is a support for soft tissue compression with an integrated 3D silicone pad. Its thin design ensures high comfort in wear – also when the ankle support is worn in the shoe. The soft Comfort Zone in the sensitive instep area and the breathable sole further enhance the comfort of the fit.
The ankle support can be used for all indications, in which soft tissue compression with local additional pads at the ankle joint is necessary, such as:
- slight instability of the ankle joint
- sprains (strains) and distorsions
- joint effusion and swellings due to arthritis and osteoarthritis/arthritis
The 3D silicone pad on the Levamed® aids the dissipation of swelling (oedema, haematomas). Furthermore, the compressive knitted fabric over the ankle joint region can improve proprioception. This improvement can, in turn, support the body's own guidance and stabilise the joint.
The included parachute silk donning aid makes it easier for the user to put on and correctly position the Levamed® support. The unique knitting technique (medi Soft Edge) at the ends of the bandage ensures a comfortable and secure fit: medi Soft Edge prevents any unpleasant cutting into the skin.
Thanks to a special hybrid fabric created from high-tech-fibre and natural eucalyptus fibre, the ankle bandage is particularly soft on the skin. Clima Comfort* also ensures that Levamed® can be worn in everyday life as well as during physical activities: the modern fibre-technology wicks moisture quickly away from the surface of the skin and ensures a high level of breathability. Furthermore, the fibres have an antibacterial action and inhibit odour-forming bacteria in textiles.
Levamed is a bandage for soft tissue compression of the ankle joint.
* Scientifically tested by the French Institut IFTH. The test result shows that Clima Comfort technology from medi guarantees climate exchange between the skin and the garment. medi achieved an outstanding total score with 11 out of 12 points.

The elaborately worked knit ensures a balanced microclimate of the skin. Moisture is transported reliably and quickly from the inner surface to evaporate from the outer surface. At the same time, the material’s active breathing structure guarantees the necessary oxygen supply.
Clima Fresh: The integrated Clima Fresh function has an odour-inhibiting effect. This is achieved via special thread technology or via special processing during the production process.
Soft zones in the sensitive flexor areas ensure that the support does not press on or cut into the skin, even when worn all day long.
All compression garments and compression pantyhose (round knit and flat knit), anti-embolism stockings and supports are regularly tested to OEKO-TEX Standard 100 for human ecological harmful substances and assessed. The awarding of the certificate OEKO-TEX Standard 100 guarantees tested quality that safeguards your health.

All indications which call for soft tissue compression with additional local cushion support on the ankle, such as:
- Slight instability of the ankle joint
- Sprains and distorsions
- Joint effusions and swellings due to arthritis and osteoarthritis
There are no known side effects if the correctly sized product is fitted as recommended. If unexpected pain, swelling or numbness occur whilst wearing the support remove it and seek medical advice. Particular care is required where the following conditions are present:
- Diseases or injuries of the skin in the area of use, especially with inflammatory symptoms (excessive warming, swelling or reddening)
- Sensitivity and perfusion disorders of the legs or feet (e.g. in the case of diabetes)
- Lymph outflow disorders, as well as unclear swellings of soft tissues, apart from the area of use
Any combination with other products (e.g. compression stockings) must be discussed in advance with the responsible doctor.
