I saw this online and decided to purchase it before going to the doctor and I am very happy with my purchase.
It fits well, gives good support for people suffering with tendinosis, and includes tools to help you slip the brace on.
Absolutely worth it, am in the business of orthotic and this brace work very well.

Product Description

AchilloTrain is a comfortable knitted support with an anatomically contoured visco-elastic insert alongside the Achilles tendon that produces a massage effect, thus stimulating the surrounding tissue. An integral visco-elastic heel cushion relieves the tendon. An additional heel cushion is provided for the unaffected foot. It is worn to treat Achilles tendon injuries, to reduce pain or swelling in the Achilles tendon (e.g. due to excessive strain or after operations). AchilloTrain active support helps to relieve the Achilles tendon without restricting mobility.

I ruptured my left achilles tendon approximately two and a half years ago playing softball. It was a dreadful injury that sidelined me for almost a year from all sports related activities. I never want to go through it again.

Recently, my right achilles began to hurt after softball games and I started to panic. I remember my left achilles feeling the same way in the months leading up to the rupture, and I feared I would be looking at another surgery if I continued playing without addressing the issue. I've been wearing an ankle brace on the right foot as a precaution but the area still hurt with the tendinitis. I didn't want to give up softball as I get enjoyment out of the game and it keeps me active, so I started looking at support braces which are specifically designed to support the achilles.

I was most worried this particular brace was going to end up being too tight or too loose (based on some of the other reviews here), but it fit perfectly and gave me more confidence as soon as I put it on. I can only guess the people who have been complaining didn't go to the manufacturer's Web site [...] to see how to correctly measure to choose the appropriate size. You need to measure the circumference of your ankle ABOVE the lateral malleolus (the "knob" on the outside of your ankle) and compare it to the chart on the manufacturer's Web site to choose the correct size.

I've worn the brace now for two softball outings and the tendon soreness I was experiencing after the games has virtually disappeared. It is well worth the money if it keeps me playing and away from the operating table. Trust me, a hundred dollar investment is chump change compared to the misery of dealing with a rupture and the long recovery period after surgery.

I have had achilles tendonosis for 4 years. I've been in and out of a walking boot 7 times since then, I have down numerous hours of physical therapy and rehab, and have spent A LOT of money to go to ankle specialists just to hear them tell me the same thing over and over!
I played pro-basketball, but decided to give it up until I got better, as to not risk tearing my achilles. As a result, I gained 30 pounds, still had the hard callus on the back of my heel, and had a bad burning pain running up and down my calf from my achilles.
I thought to order this brace a year and a half ago, but felt it was too much money for a brace that I didn't "need" (the doctors kept saying rest and theraphy would heal it). This year, I decided, "I tried everything else, why not invest in this and see how it goes"? I'M SOOO HAPPY I BOUGHT THIS! I WISH I'D BOUGHT IT SOONER! ;-) After the few seconds that I put it on, I felt IMMEDIATE RELIEF! I did an intense beach bootcamp workout the second day I had it (trying to lose the 30lbs) and I had NO PAIN afterwards..not from my achilles anyways.
I look forward to getting back to basketball and not walking with a limp, w/this brace, I'm optimistic about the future!

I can't say enough about this brace...I'm approx 9 weeks post op (Achilles Rupture), and last week was given the green light from my Dr. to learn/teach myself to walk again. The last few days had been rough ("baby steps" right), with pain in my foot (10+weeks of NWB) and just plain awkwardness, so I I figured I would try this brace. First to give myself some confidence in protecting the tendon, and second for the wedge support to take some of the flex/weight off the tendon itself.

So I just received the brace and threw it on to give it try, already I can tell a difference in the pain/comfort, and the peace of mind for the protection. If you're like me (post op) or have Achilles issues, I would highly recommend the brace, so far so good! Granted I'm not up and running marathons (yet), but I can definitely feel more comfort and less pain with the Brace

As previous the previous reviews stated...the only negative thus far is the cost, but at this point anything is worth it to help me walk again without my crutches.

This doesn't seem like much when you open it, but the flexibility, plus support, plus where the support is positioned is magic. It's like getting physical therapy on your tendon while you walk. It holds the tendon in place AND it massages it, bringing blood flow to the tendon to promote healing. The more you move your ankle up and down, the more massage occurs. And it is light enough that you can wear a sock and shoe with it. I was able to resume tennis thanks to this...without surgery. CAVEAT: 1) Make sure you measure your ankle to secure the correct size--I read reviews that complained about its being too loose or too tight. This caused me to find the sizing chart and measure and I was glad I did. Also, don't wear this if you are not walking, moving, exercising--it's not meant to be worn while you are at rest as it can constrict blood flow without that massaging movement. This is worth the price.

I've been battling this Achilles injury for 8 months now, with 3 months of physical therapy and modified workouts. Based on all the great reviews, I decided to suck it up and fork over the $100+ to give this "miracle" brace a try.

I wore it to one workout--about an hour and a half total--and it caused me so much more pain than I had been in when I went to similar training sessions without it.

To be clear, I spent time on the Bauerfeind website and measured carefully according to their instructions to make sure I got the right size. I read the booklet and all the instructions to make sure I was using it right.

The bottom line is, this just did not work for me and did more harm than good...and was not user error.

It also left a very bad taste in my mouth that I have to pay return postage AND eat a 20% "restocking fee" because it is considered a "medical device." I get it, they are perfectly within their rights to do this, but it stinks for me to have experienced additional pain when I wore this and then have to take the added hit of losing money on top of buyer beware. This may be the brace for you, but if it's not, you're going to be out about $30 net.
