Thuasne Patella Knee Support Strap
The patella tendon does most of the work when it comes to movement, helping you to run, kick and jump. For active individuals especially, this means that the patella becomes weakened, leading to conditions such as jumper's knee (patella tendinitis). Designed to anatomically support the patella tendon, the Thuasne Patella Knee Support Strap helps prevent these conditions from manifesting, and alleviates symptoms of pain that have already taken hold.
Please note that this knee support can be worn on either the left or right leg.
Sizing of the Thuasne Strap
The Thuasne Patella Bandage is available in one universal size to fit most knees. To find out if the strap will fit you, measure the circumference of your knee just below your kneecap ash shown in the diagram below. The strap will fit anyone with a circumference of between 29cm and 50cm.

Why Is It Important to Protect Your Patella?
The patella tendon is particularly prone to wear and tear, particularly if you lead an active lifestyle and play sports often. As we depend on our knees each day to help us move around, any issues in the area can be debilitating to your everyday routine. Conditions like Osgood-Schlatter disease and tears in the patella tendon can cause inflammation and instability, which can only be improved with sufficient rest and support.

With its anatomical shape, the Patella Strap supports and stabilises your kneecap as much as possible. As the straps can be adjusted, you can choose the extent to which you compress the area. The bandage also applies local pressure over the patella tendon to help speed up the recovery process.

Owing to its anatomical design, the Patella Strap can be worn underneath your clothes with minimal bulk or discomfort. This allows you to get the support you need while going about your day as normal, and without drawing any unwanted attention.
