CaligaLoc®

Immobilizing ankle orthosis with enhanced protective function

In case of severe injuries or following surgery, it can help to partially immobilize your ankle at first during the day and at night. CaligaLoc stabilizes the ankle with an L-shaped plastic shell positioned on the outside. An integrated wedge in the outer heel area of the footbed tilts your foot inward and relieves the ligaments of the lateral malleolus.

  • After severe injuries or surgery
  • Good stability for the entire ankle
  • Relieves the lateral collateral ligaments

Time off for your ankle

In case of severe injuries or following surgery, it can help recovery if you partially immobilize your ankle at first. CaligaLoc stabilizes the upper and lower ankle with an L-shaped plastic shell positioned on the outside and an elongated sole.

The outside of the footbed is slightly raised at the heel. In this way, the orthosis tilts the foot inward and protects against further spraining. At the same time, this foot position relieves the ligaments of your lateral malleolus, helping to prevent chronic instability. The anatomically shaped plastic splint can be individually adjusted using the Velcro straps. It is softly padded on the inside, making it comfortable to wear. In case of severe swelling, the orthotist can cut out the cushion.

Fit again fast

With its elongated sole, CaligaLoc partly immobilizes your ankle and restricts its range of motion – during everyday activities and also at night. Without an orthosis, your foot could go into an equinus foot position during sleep that puts particular strain on the anterior talofibular ligament. Thus CaligaLoc has a positive influence on recovery.

CaligaLoc gives you the confidence to move correctly and without fear despite your injury. This allows you to start physiotherapy at an early stage and return to your normal everyday life. After all, the golden rule for optimal recovery is: being active is key to good health!
