Actimove Everyday Stability Knee Support with Two Stays
When you're getting back into sports after a knee injury, a brace that provides both compression and lateral stability can help give you the support and pain relief you need to perform. The Actimove Everyday Stability Knee Support with Two Stays provides reliable compression to relieve pain, and features two lateral stays which can help provide some added support to help manage instability.
Please note that this support is ambidextrous, meaning that it can be worn on either the left or right knee.
Who Can Make Gains with the Actimove Knee Support with Two Stays?
In the latter stages of recovery, your knee might still feel slightly unstable, which can make it hard to feel confident in your athletic ability. By compressing the area to reduce pain while reducing side-to-side motion with lateral stays, this knee brace will help increase confidence and comfort in your knee, helping you push past your mental barriers and get back to performing at your best.
Who Should Use the Actimove Stability Knee Support?
This knee brace is designed to provide a compressive and stabilising effect that will relieve pain associated with many common knee conditions and irritations. In particular, this support is suitable for:
- Degenerative knee conditions
- General knee pain
- Overuse injuries
- Chronic knee pain
- Knee instability
- Moderate arthritis
How Comfortable Is the Everyday Support?
As with all supports in the Actimove Everyday range, this knee brace is designed with soft materials that are easy on the skin after hours of wear. The anatomical shape and breathable materials will allow you to carry out your daily tasks in comfort, all the while being soothed by constant compression to stimulate circulation. Completely latex-free, this brace is suited to everyday wear during both sports and casual activities.
Which Size Should I Choose?
The Actimove Knee Support with Stays is available in four sizes. To determine the correct size for you, measure the circumference of your thigh just above the knee (as illustrated) and refer to the sizing table below.
|Size ||Lower Thigh Circumference |
|Small ||31 - 36cm (12 - 13.5") |
|Medium ||36 - 41cm (14 - 15.5") |
|Large ||41 - 46cm (16 - 17.5") |
|Extra Large ||46 - 52cm (18 - 19.5") |
When Should I Use the Actimove Stability Knee Brace?
As the name suggest, this knee support is designed to be used during virtually any activity in which you feel knee pain. This could include general everyday wear, or exercise such as walking or running. As the Actimove Stability Knee Brace is made with a seamless anatomical shape, it is comfortable to wear for long periods at a time.
What's the Benefit of Spiral Stays?
Often after recovering from a knee injury, the joint can be left with some amount of instability. The lateral spiral stays on either side of this support help to correct that instability, and can also serve to provide you with some more confidence while walking or running. The stays aren't rigid enough to make walking any more difficult, but they can guide the knee to proper motion and help to prevent any unwanted twisting movements.
How Do I Apply the Knee Brace?
This support includes no straps, buckles or adjustments, so it's simple to apply in seconds. Simply slip the brace on so that the dark motion-comfort zone is placed over the patella, and you'll be enjoying pain-relieving compression immediately. The image below shows the proper application procedure.
How Durable Is the Actimove Knee Brace?
As this brace is designed for everyday wear, it had been reinforced to stand up to the rigours of hours of daily use. The edges are reinforced to prevent fraying, and the seamless design helps to ensure the compression of the brace will remain constant for a long period.
Motion-Comfort Zone for Added Comfort
The Actimove Knee Stability Brace is designed to provide even compression across the knee, and will move with your body with each step with maximum comfort. To prevent any slipping or discomfort during movement, a smooth motion-comfort zone is included over the patella, as can be seen below.
Does This Brace Contain Neoprene or Latex?
No, this brace is made from high-performance material that is both flexible and breathable for all-day comfort. This material is both latex- and neoprene-free, which makes it an ideal brace for people with sensitive skin.
