Zamst Filmista {Next Generation Ankle Support} Review

Thank you to Zamst for providing the Filmista for review in exchange for my honest opinion.

With each new year comes New Year’s Resolutions. The top New Years Resolution for 2017 is not surprising: to lose weight/eat healthier. Along with loosing weight generally comes working out. As a nurse, I know that along with working out many times comes injuries – especially for those who are not used to working out. Zamst is a company that offers precision engineered support bands, guards and braces for almost every joint in your body.

I love to play sports. I play volleyball, softball and kickball on leagues each year. I am athletic, yet I’m also known to be quite clumsy and I have joints that easily pop out of socket, so inevitably I end up with at least one sprained joint of some kind each year (generally my ankles). Through the years I have tried many different types of ankle supports and braces. I have large calves so finding an ankle brace that fits can be tricky.

I was excited to partner with Zamst to try their Filmista ankle support. The Filmista comes in four different sizes. Size is determined by the circumference of your heel. Unlike some ankle braces the Filmista has anatomically correct choices for both the left and right foot. The Filmista uses Flex Film Compression that provides variable support. It feels like a second skin, and has an open panel design that features adjustable fasteners which provide an individualized fit as well as varied compression levels. It also provides great medial and lateral support for being so thin.

Since there are no sports seasons going on right now I have been wearing the Zamst Filmista around the house while doing chores. It is the most comfortable ankle support I have ever worn. It is easy to put on and the adjustability is great! It doesn’t cut off the circulation like some of my previous supports have. It fits my wide ankle with no problem. I like that it is worn under the sock. Even in shoes it does not feel bulky.

A final note: if your ankle injury is severe and or you are needing a higher level of support the Filmista may not be the right choice for you – however Zamst does have a few other more heavy duty ankle brace options that I think might work nicely.

    I am glad this brace worked for you. I can not use a brace like this due to my disability. I’ll be sure to let my family know about this product.

  • Jeanine Carlson

    I like that they’re finally coming out with products that are lighter and more comfortable while still offering good protection.

  • This looks like something my niece could use. She has one weak ankle and she does sports. I bet this would help her. Thank you for the review.

    My ankle started bothering me a couple of days ago I think it is all the walking I have been doing this week I need to check this product out. Great review.

  • Susan Hartman

    I had surgery on my achilles tendon years ago and things have never been the same. I could use some support on my left ankle. This looks worth the try.

    I will have to mention this to my husband. He broke an ankle and has plates. There are times he says his ankle feels weaker and this looks like it would be nice and light yet give support he needs. I like too how it looks like it would clean up easily.

    A good thing to have, I have an ankle that goes weak sometimes. I have no idea why!

  • Sarah L

    I’ll have to check out their knee braces. This ankle one looks great for you.

  • Amber Ludwig

    I love that it’s so easily adjustable!! I have big calves too so finding anything that fits me correctly in that area is such a struggle!!

  • Michelle S

    These may be a good choice for my kids. They both run for cross country and end up with sore ankles and knees at times. It’s hard to find a good brace for them. Thanks for sharing your opinion.

    I’ve tried a number of ankle braces. Some were so bulky that they were uncomfortable in sneakers. I like how this one is very slim and more contoured.

    I have sprained my ankles before I need something to help with ankle support so I always buy sneakers that go over the ankles I would like something like this
