Malleo TriStep

Falling or twisting the ankle, which often occurs during sports, can cause ligament injuries. In many cases, an operation followed by several weeks of immobilisation used to be unavoidable. Thanks to modern braces such as the Malleo TriStep multi-function brace, an operation is often no longer required. Patients can bear weight on their foot and move it sooner as well. What’s more, the structure of the Malleo TriStep allows the brace to be adapted to the three different phases of healing. The ankle joint is stabilised in a targeted manner following an acute injury. Later, the foot can be gradually accustomed to movement. All of this is accomplished with just one brace, which can be adapted to the respective phase in a few simple steps.
The Malleo TriStep was developed in cooperation with renowned orthopaedic specialists, sports physicians, biomechanics, therapists and O&P professionals.

Stabilisation strap

The stabilisation strap holds the foot in a neutral position (90°).

Footshell

The footshell immobilises the foot and provides stability in critical phases, such as during sleep or in the acute phase.

Benefits at a glance
Targeted training

The specially developed Malleo Move exercise programme provides targeted support to help your ligaments heal. The exercises are tailored to the three healing phases. You can easily perform them at home, but only after speaking with your doctor.

Immobilisation (phase I)

The Malleo TriStep immobilises your foot in the acute inflammation phase (day 0 to 4, max. to day 14). The objective is to alleviate your pain and reduce swelling in the foot. You need to elevate the foot and cool it with ice in this phase. Your doctor will provide you with detailed advice. During this phase, you wear the Malleo TriStep with the stabilisation strap and footplate. During the day, it can be worn in a flat shoe that can be opened wide.

Stabilisation (phase II)

In the new tissue formation phase (day 4 to 28), you do not have to wear the footplate during the day. The goal is to continue stabilising the foot and slowly begin to mobilise it. You continue to wear the footplate at night, which prevents the foot from rotating inward, especially when you lie on your back or on your side. This prevents the ligaments from tearing again during the night.

Support (phase III)

The tissue maturation phase begins around day 29, so you can wear the Malleo TriStep without the stabilisation strap and footplate depending on the indication. This is intended to improve your stability and mobility as well as coordination and balance. After the end of this phase, you can continue to wear the brace to prevent re-injuring the ligaments in your ankle.

User Experience

Jana with the Malleo TriStep ankle orthosis during volleyball training with her team

Jana ist Leistungssportlerin und spielt leidenschaftlich gerne Volleyball. Doch dann knickte die 25-Jährige bei einem Volleyballspiel um. Diagnose: Außenbandriss. Die Sprunggelenksorthese Malleo TriStep verhalf ihr dabei ihren Fuß langsam wieder an Bewegungen zu gewöhnen. Die Orthese bietet ihr die nötige Sicherheit und Stabilität, die sie braucht, um ihre Mobilität wieder voll und ganz wiederzuerlangen. In dem Video berichtet Jana über den Heilungsprozess und den Einsatz der Malleo TriStep.

Functionality

The Malleo TriStep uses a three-phase treatment concept to facilitate systematic rehabilitation of the capsular ligaments in the ankle. As the patient’s mobility increases, the stabilising function of the Malleo TriStep can be systematically adapted in each therapy phase.

Adapting the Malleo TriStep in phases supports the patient as he or she regains muscle coordination and provides adequate support for the ligaments of the ankle at every stage of therapy.

FAQS

Answers for you

Can I put the Malleo TriStep on myself and adapt it to the respective healing phase as needed?

The Malleo TriStep is very easy to use. It is designed so you can put it on independently and also remove the functional and stabilising elements – after speaking with your doctor, of course. Your doctor will show you how this works. Illustrated information materials are available as well, clearly showing the application of the ankle brace in an easy to understand format.

Can I wear a shoe with the Malleo TriStep?

How soon and how much you are allowed to move with your brace generally depends on the severity of your injury, of course. Your doctor will provide you with detailed advice about this as well. In principle, however, you can wear the Malleo TriStep with the footshell as well in a sturdy shoe with no heel.

How long do I have to wear the Malleo TriStep?

That depends on the severity of your injury and varies from one person to the next. In consultation with your doctor, the individual functional and stabilising elements of the brace can be removed as you gradually need less and less support. In principle, however, the Malleo TriStep can also be worn to prevent new ligament injuries, for example during sports.

How can I clean the Malleo TriStep?

You can hand wash the ankle brace in warm water at 30 °C with mild laundry detergent and then allow it to air dry. Please be sure to fasten the hook-and-loop closures and remove the footshell prior to washing. The footshell is easy to clean with a damp cloth.
