BioSkin Gladiator XT Knee Support
To have a knee out of action either because of injury or surgery can be one of the worst blows to your freedom of motion. Knee pain, like any joint pain, is able to flare up with the simplest of movements.
The BioSkin Gladiator XT Knee Support is designed for either early post surgical management or for support following mild ligament sprains, and can help maintain the knee in a comfortable and healthy position, with hinges that can control the range of motion to ensure you don't push yourself too hard too soon. This pull-on version is easy to apply and comes complete with hinge pads to ensure wearer comfort.
For users who prefer a closure support as opposed to a pull-on design, the Gladiator DT Front Closure Knee Support is recommended.
Who Can Make Gains with the Gladiator XT Knee Support?
The Gladiator XT Knee Support protects the ACL, MCL and other ligaments in the knee with a 15-inch, rigid hinge that gives you the option of limiting flexion and extension of the knee. The Gladiator Support is suitable for the following conditions:
- Early osteoarthritis
- LCL sprains
- MCL sprains
- Mild sprains and instabilities
- Meniscal cartilage tears / repairs
How Does the Gladiator XT Knee Support Work?
The Gladiator is made to protect knees with ligament sprains or tears. The heavy-duty hinge is 15 inches long and solidly anchored into the brace's rigid strapping system to prevent unwanted twisting and bending.
The hinge may be used to to control range of motion with attached pins that can be set to limit extension and flexion. Moreover, this Knee Support also includes a Visco gel ring around the patella to control swelling and pain in the joint.
