Who Can Wear the Oppo Knee Brace with Side Stabilisers?
The Oppo Knee Brace provides support for those with injured or weak knees, giving you the necessary compression to increase blood flow to promote healing. We recommend the Oppo Knee Brace for the following conditions:
- Knee instability
- Knee strains and sprains
- Collateral ligament injury (stretched or torn ligament)
- Arthritic knees
What Benefit Do Side Stabilisers Have?
Side stabilisers, also know as side stays, provide extra support which can benefit those with knee instability and weak knees. Following a knee injury, you may experience some instability in the joint. The spiral stays on either side of the brace help to correct that instability, guiding the knee to proper motion to reduce the likelihood of further injury.
How Does Compression Help Injuries?
The compression provided by the Oppo Knee Brace may help to reduce swelling post-injury. Compression also serves to stabilise and realign the knee joint and reduce the amount of movement within the knee, which may help to reduce pain and to protect the knee from further damage whilst you are recovering from injury.
Is the Oppo Knee Brace Suitable for Use During Movement?
Yes, the Oppo Knee Brace can be used during movement to help stabilise the joint and reduce the risk of further injuries. The Oppo Brace provides sustained compression during movement, allowing you to stay mobile and protect your knee at the same time. The Oppo Brace is easily adjustable to prevent slipping and movement of the brace during periods of exercise and activity.
