Achilles tendon support with integrated anatomically formed silicone pad. Achimed is an Achilles tendon support exclusively to be used for the orthotic fitting of the Achilles tendon and only on unbroken skin.

Achimed causes a massage effect, which supports perfusion, by interacting with the compressive knitted fabric and the two integrated silicon inlays. This effect furthers the decline in swellings and bruises.

Irritation and pain are relieved. Simultaneously the muscular control and the inherent stabilisation of the ankle joint improve.
