BioSkin QLok Patella Support with Front Closure
Movement and gentle exercise are key to healthy rehabilitation, preventing the joint from becoming stiff or weakened and allowing blood flow to speed up healing times. The BioSkin QLok Patella Support with Front Closure offers compressive support that correctly positions the knee cap and stabilises the joint so that you can leave your recovery to BioSkin while you get on with more important things.
For users who prefer a pull-on design, the BioSkin QLok Support is recommended.
