Designed with Specialist Fabrics
The AirXtend Knee Support is made from a unique blend of materials that offer concerted support while maintaining breathability. The combination of Airprene neoprene and Coolmax provides comfort that does not hinder the wearer's movement.
Neoprene is known for its heat retentive qualities, which aid in promoting blood circulation and pain relief. However, neoprene can also make supports feel stuffy and uncomfortable. Airprene is a specially made upgrade on traditional neoprene that features perforation holes to increase ventilation, providing a fresh, irritation-free feel for the skin.
The Coolmax lining wicks perspiration away from the body to keep the skin feeling cool as can be. This removal of moisture will also help to improve hygiene, further enabling the AirXtend Knee Brace to offer relief during prolonged wear. Slimline in nature, it can be worn throughout the day underneath clothing without causing inconvenience.
Open or Closed Patella Designs
The AirXtend Knee Support is available in one size to fit most, which eliminates the need to worry about obtaining the correct measurements. It is also available in either an open or closed patella design, which each offer a different kind of support. The closed patella provides optimal compression, while the open patella helps to stabilise the kneecap.
