- Relieves ankle discomfort from sprains and swelling
- Speeds natural healing to recover from injury faster
- Easy on and off design with Velcro adjustable fit
- Acticel™ has you covered - Exceptional support and comfort at any level of activity. Wear as long as you want, without overheating and without perspiration build-up
The Balance Magnetic Ankle Brace helps reduce ankle swelling, tenderness and bruising. It provides excellent pain relief for ankle sprains, and can help speed up recovery time from injury.
I have had a bad ankle for over 10 years and it was always swollen. I couldn't even feel it but I felt the pain every time I walked. So I bought the ankle brace wore it non-stop while at work and home and within a couple of weeks no more swelling and the pain was gone. Now I only wear it if it bothers me. These magnets are fantastic. I don't know how I did without them.

8 strategically placed 4,300 gauss ceramic magnets surround the entire ankle. These powerful magnetic fields enter the ankle from several different angles, to more effectively ease pain and reducing swelling. This helps speed healing, restore flexibility, and reduce recovery time from ankle sprains and other injuries.
Therion® supports and braces are made with patented Acticel™ high-performance fabric. Acticel™ provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.
Acticel™ technology maintains an ideal comfort zone between your skin and the support at any level of physical activity, allowing Therion orthopedic supports to be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without perspiration build-up.
The Balance ankle brace provides adjustable compression around your ankle. It can be put on or removed in seconds using two adjustable Velcro straps. The ankle wrap is low-profile and easy to wear with sneakers (tennis shoes), boots and orthopedic shoes, and can be worn comfortably during exercise. Fits left or right ankle.
Please note: Not everyone can use magnets. There are a few restrictions.

What is Acticel?
Acticel™ is a high-performance orthopedic material that provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.
The comfort problem with orthopedic supports
Traditional Neoprene supports provide excellent compression, but are non-breathable so they prevent heat and sweat from escaping. This causes over-heating and excessive sweat build-up, making them very uncomfortable to wear for more then a short period of time.
While having advantages over traditional non-breathable Neoprene in certain circumstances, “Breathable” supports provide minimal therapeutic heat benefit because of their uncontolled heat loss. This causes condensation of sweat, which cools the skin. At higher levels of activity, the support will eventually become soaking wet and very uncomfortable. There is also a significant reduction in the compressive and elastic qualities of the material.
What are the benefits of Acticel™?
Acticel™ creates a perfect therapeutic microclimate between your skin and the support by maintaining optimum therapeutic temperature and low moisture (sweat) at any level of physical activity.
This patented technology is why Therion orthopedic supports can be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without sweat build-up.
How does Acticel™ work?
Acticel™ uses a pattern of dome-shaped vapor chambers, each with a tiny hole at the top to replicate the way the leaves of a plant transpire (lose water vapor).
While resting, excess body heat and perspiration rise into the dome-shaped chambers and exit through the tiny holes at a controlled rate. The chambers flex and stretch with each movement of the body, causing excess heat and perspiration to be pumped out of the small holes. This also allows cooler, drier air to enter from the outside.
The unique pumping action of the vapor chambers increases and decreases with the user's level of physical activity. This ensures that body heat, blood flow and compression remain consistent during a wide range of activities.
What is the science behind Acticel™?
Acticel™ technology is based on the laws of thermodynamics and diffusion where heat will always move from an area of high temperature to an area of low temperature; and water vapor will tend to move from an area of higher density to an area of lower density in order to regain equilibrium.
The unique design of the Acticel™ vapor chamber provides the required air space for excess perspiration to evaporate and collect as vapor. This creates the necessary conditions to establish a steep diffusion gradient at the tiny hole on top of the chamber, allowing maximum removal of vapor, while minimizing therapeutic heat loss.
