The supports are intended not only for recovery but also for prevention of injury. An ankle sprain occurs when you are in unexpected situations such as bumping into other people or after jumping. So, we recommend that you use the product for prevention even if you don't get injured. Also, it is not recommended to use support during light exercise such as stretching. To prevent ankle inversion, the A1 is our recommendation If you feel too strong support by the A1, please try the A1 Short or the Filmsita Ankle, lighter level of the ankle support. If possible, please try on some types of Zamst ankle supports at retail stores.
We don't recommend that you wear the ankle support on your barefoot except for the Filmista Ankle. Most of the ankle support that we offer are supposed to wear with the socks on. Wearing the support with a barefoot may damage the skin by touching with hard parts or friction, furthermore, may not fully utilize the performance of the product due to slippage.
As for the countermeasure for the pain, we recommend that you firmly insert your foot to the product at first. Even if you choose the correct size, the guard will be out of position when you don't wear it correctly. We recommend that you place it not to the exact point of pain but slightly displace and make a gap.

When applying the accompanying cushion (soft spacer), we recommend that you place it not to the exact point of pain but slightly displace and make a gap.
We recommend the HA-1, functional socks to support the arch, among our products rather than the supports. Those who have flat feet tend to have strain around the heel and shin as they cannot absorb the shock when running. The HA-1 socks are made by unique knitting technique that prevents the arch and toe from being stretched and support the arch. The product helps absorb the shock when landing the ground by reducing instability on the toe. The AS-1, another functional socks series dedicated to arch support, is recommended as well. Shoe insoles are also recommended for flat feet. We offer the functional insole named "Footcraft".
We don't recommend that you wear our supports on the tights as the knee products are originally designed for wearing directly on the skin. Also, wearing the product on your tights may cause slipping off depending on the texture and material of the tights and you may not get an appropriate effect. Furthermore, you might get uncomfortable or even painful when being the knees due to the thickness of the back of the knee.
You may wear lower back support during working time. The assistive belt enhances the effect of abdominal pressure elevation. The back panel attached to the back of the main body provides support and enhances stability on the lower back. Please make sure to take the product off occasionally and do some light exercises such as stretching because wearing the product for a prolonged time with the same position may cause uncomfortableness such as excessive compression, slipping off and sweat.
Yes, you may wear the Shoulder Wrap either side of your shoulders by replacing an adjustable strap.
We assume that you might have so-called "Tennis Elbow" as you feel pain on the elbow when playing tennis. However, only doctors can diagnose, so please seek medical advice. Tennis Elbow is mostly caused by the strain and impact from the wrist, so we recommend that you try the Elbow Band or the Wrist Band to reduce the strain on the elbow. Also, stretching, training, and icing are effective for elbow care and highly recommended to do as well as use the support.
Yes, the Thumb Guard can be used for both left and right, as a thermal fit guard made of thermoplastic material fits the shape of an individual's finger by molding with warm water.
It has been medically ascertained that appropriate pressure on the pain site relieve the pain when you have a pain in muscles or joints. This fact suggests that the pain in the outer muscles of the calf may be treated by pressing on that region. The CS-1 provides compression around the calf with adjustable compression level. The Filmista Calf is also recommended for the same purpose.
The Calf Sleeve provides a graduated compression. We ask you not to use it while asleep. Using the product during asleep does not provide appropriate compression due to sagging and slippage and may prevent you from being aware circulatory deficit immediately.
Zamst Calf Sleeve is recommended. Gradual compression weakening from the ankle to the calf helps the blood return to the heart and speeds up recovery from fatigue and other substances. And a shortage of fluids and electrolytes may cause the calf cramp. It is recommended that you drink isotonic drink frequently. Also please make sure to do stretching firmly before exercising.
The Ice Bag is not expected to use with hot water, so please keep out hot water. Otherwise, you would get burned. If you would like to use something for warming, the Cold & Hot Pack that may apply to both cooling and warming.
