Thuasne Sport Neoprene Knee Support with Stays
Two effective ways to reduce stubborn knee pain is to provide warm compression while keeping the knee stable and secure. Designed to do both of these things, the Thuasne Sport Neoprene Knee Support with Stays is made with warming neoprene, and features two lateral stays that prevent the knee from twisting and turning during physical activity.
Please note that this knee brace can be worn on either the left or right leg.

Top Sizing Tips
- If your measurements fall on a size boundary, we recommend choosing the larger size for greater levels of comfort
- The brace is meant to be compressive and will feel tight as a result; if you would prefer less tightness, please choose a larger size
- If you do not have a flexible tape measure, take your measurements with a piece of string, then measure the string with a ruler

- And many more!
Two lateral stays running either side of the leg help maintain the joint along its axis to prevent further injury. These stays are flexible instead of rigid, and move with the knee to prevent restricting motion. This is ideal for athletes who want to protect their knees without impeding their flexibility.
Warm Therapeutic Compression
Known for its warmth, neoprene provides soothing heat compression to achieve optimal levels of pain relief. The two combined elements of warmth and compression work together to encourage blood flow around the knee, which in turn alleviates pain and promotes faster healing.
Neoprene is a lightweight material that's able to stretch in multiple directions, allowing the wearer to move with complete, unrestricted freedom. Not only does this make the brace more comfy, it also means that the brace can be worn during high-paced physical activities.
Improves Patella Tracking
Patella maltracking is one of the most common side-effects of living an active lifestyle, and can cause considerable amounts of pain and discomfort. To rectify poor tracking, this brace features an open patella design that helps guide the kneecap through motion without sliding out of place.
