Step Ups Plus –

This is a more dynamic version of the step up. This incorporates more explosive hip flexion, knee extension, and ankle plantar flexion.

The unique features of the AchilloTrain from Bauerfeind help to support the Achilles tendon and reduce or relieve pain experienced there, easing the performance of exercise or everyday activities.

You will need an exercise step measuring 6” or more in height. Begin standing upright on feet spread hip-width apart. Step up onto the step with one foot and follow by forcefully lifting the opposite knee forward. Step down and back on each foot. Repeat alternating the lead foot.

Adjust pace according to your ability and repeat as instructed.

AchilloTrain Ankle Support

Bauerfeind’s AchilloTrain® braces and supports relieve pain and stabilize the Achilles tendon without restricting your mobility. This soft brace is ideal for post-surgery therapy, tendinitis, inflammation around the tendon and pain in the back of the heel.
