What Can a Knee Brace Do for Me?
Knee supports are designed to stabilise and compress the knee, either to reduce pain and inflammation with an existing injury, or to prevent one from happening in the first place. If you've suffered an injury and want to heal quicker, or are regularly active and want to take steps to prevent injury, then this knee brace can help.
Shock Absorbent Patella Ring
The patella takes on a lot of pressure throughout the day, especially during periods of exercise where excessive force is placed on the kneecap. In order to reduce the impact that frequent running, jumping or lifting has on the knees, the Thuasne Sports Knee Brace features a padded patella ring that absorbs shock and vibrations.
With two flexible stays running along either side of the knee, the Thuasne Reinforced Knee Brace provides optimal levels of stability without compromising movement. The stays help correct and maintain the knees alignment as you move, preventing them from sliding out of place due to poor tracking.
Made from elastic knit, this knee brace delivers even compression throughout the knee joint with the dual benefit of pain-relief and improved proprioception. This enhances your own natural abilities and allows you to move with extra strength and vitality.
