Step Ups Plus

Ankle, Knee & Hip Injury Recovery Exercise

Physical Therapy Videos Put Together By Real Orthopedic Specialists To Help You Recover And Stay Injury-Free.

Strengthen the muscles responsible for moving and supporting the ankle, knee and hip.


This is a more dynamic version of the step up. This incorporates more explosive hip flexion, knee extension, and ankle plantar flexion.

The unique features of the AchilloTrain from Bauerfeind help to support the Achilles tendon and reduce or relieve pain experienced there, easing the performance of exercise or everyday activities.

You will need an exercise step measuring 6” or more in height. Begin standing upright on feet spread hip-width apart. Step up onto the step with one foot and follow by forcefully lifting the opposite knee forward. Step down and back on each foot. Repeat alternating the lead foot.

Adjust pace according to your ability and repeat as instructed.

AchilloTrain® Ankle Support

  • Contoured insert - Running along the Achilles tendon, the pad distributes the pressure uniformly.
  • Pressure-reduced edges - Ensures comfortable fit without constricting movement, bunching or slipping. Improves circulation.
  • Three-dimensional Train active knit - for a perfect fit
  • High elasticity - makes the support easy to put on and take off
  • Breathable and comfortable fabric is machine-washable in the gentle cycle, which helps maintain its elasticity and original fit.
