Pro-Tec Achilles Tendon Support The Pro-Tec Achilles Tendon support provides targeted compression on the Achilles tendon, to help aid recovery or prevent injury from tendonitis, strains, or tears. This support also lifts the heel, reducing strain to the tendon. Stretch design keeps the brace stationary and allows you to determine the appropriate amount of compression, which can help ease tenderness and inflammation of the Achilles tendon. Neoprene strap above the ankle bone area has a pressure pad that provides focused compression. Hook-and-loop closure can be easily adjusted for just the right amount of support. CoolMax® covered felt keeps the skin cool and dry.
