Bauerfeind MalleoLoc® Ankle Brace Heating and Adaptation Instructions (WITH THE BRACE OFF THE FOOT):
Peel back the inner foam liner to prevent damage to it from the heat treatment, but you do not have to remove it completely (around two-thirds peeled back). It is easier to remove the inner foam liner when it is cold - you can achieve this by putting it in the freezer for a few minutes. The glue in the inner liner is heat-sensitive. This means that if the plastic shell is heated on the exterior with a heat gun without peeling back the inner liner, then the glue will harden and it is very difficult to remove afterwards. However, this heat-sensitive glue will help the liner to adhere back to the shell by the body's own temperature while wearing the MalleoLoc® ankle brace. Once the inner foam liner is pulled back, using a professional heat gun and heat protective gloves (leather gloves), carefully heat the plastic shell (around 400 degrees F) in the necessary area(s) until the plastic has a glossy shine.
Mold the plastic to its required shape and let cool. You can use a ball hammer to create a smoother, more rounded edge to the molded area if needed. Put the brace on your foot and form the brace around the ankle. Let it cool for a custom fit.
