BioSkin Standard Knee Support
A knee injury can take weeks to recover fully, with any over-straining only lengthening this period, but recovery needn't consist of lying down all day. A bit of exercise can go a long way to getting you back on your feet, provided you have the right support, and the BioSkin Standard Knee Support is just that!
Available with or without straps, the Knee Support is a fantastically lightweight knee brace that keeps you well supported for a healthy recovery from joint injury. Delivering constant compression to the affected area allows for a boost of circulation around the injury site to allow you to carry on with day to day life and get recovered in no time at all.

Which Size Knee Support for Knee Pain Should I Choose?
