AT Surgical Mid Calf Compression Sleeve or OUCH my ankle! Review

AT Surgical Mid Calf Compression Sleeve 3Those of you that aren't regular Nuts (followers) I watch my Granddaughter Alice during the week. Alice is almost two. NaNa is running after Alice on a daily basis!! As a result my ankles could use a little more support!  Alice is 32.5 pounds!! That's a lot of weight lifting. You can imagine how excited I was to be allowed to review 38 - AT Surgical Athletic Mid Calf Ankle Compression Sleeve from AT Surgical. 

First let me tell you what a compression sleeve does. Compression Sleeves lessen muscle fatigue and increases circulation. You can wear it all day, or just during sports activities. These would be fantastic when you travel!  Comfortable soothing compression directly aids better blood circulation and therefore the amount of oxygen that can travel to your muscles while you work out.

The mid-calf compression sleeve looks like a toeless sock. The sleeve is a seamless design that maximizes comfort and removes pressure points on the heel and back of the ankle. 

The Compression Sleeve is made of soft elastic nylon/spandex material that provides support and relief from the arch of the foot to the leg. 20-30 mmHg compression strength.

AT Surgical Mid Calf Compression Sleeve 1My thoughts. I LOVE the way the Compression Sleeve hugs my ankle and foot. It's a firm hug. It's not so tight that my toes are turning purple. It's comfortable. I can wear it all day long. I do wear it all day long. 

The firm, contour hugging tension makes me certain that I need a pair. The 38 - AT Surgical Athletic Mid Calf Ankle Compression Sleeve from AT Surgical comes one sleeve per box.  My ankle feels so great I truly need a second one. (My left ankle is very jealous) 

To care for the sleeve, wash with mild soap, rinse several times in clear water. Roll in a towel to absorb the moisture and dry flat. I make sure and clean mine every evening so I have it ready to wear the next day. The sleeve has not lost it's support or compression strength even after a weeks worth of washings.

The Mid Calf Compression Sleeve runs $11.70 each. 

I'm giving the Mid Calf Ankle Compression Sleeve 2 big toes UP!!

  1. Wonder what the cost of those are? I sometimes have to wear compression knee highs to help with low blood pressure and they run about $40 each! Best of luck with the ankle!

  2. Wow! You scared me at first, I was thinking you had to have some surgery and wear those socks. Glad no surgery but sorry about the ankles. I know they really helped my dad with circulation and swelling.

  4. I have had some issues lately with my lower legs swelling and I remember my mother in law used to wear hose made like these for hers. Guess I need to check into it.

  5. Maybe this is what I need for the superior swelling in my left ankle since I sprained my left knee. I don't think I'm getting enough circulation down there now.
