The Neo G Children's Open Knee Support is specifically designed for the younger wearer and offers dynamic support and adjustable compression to the knee complex without restricting movement. It features a patella opening with stitched buttress giving reinforced support to the patella and anterior knee. This children's knee support comes in one universal adjustable size.
Who Can Make Gains with the Neo G Open Knee Support?
The Neo G Open Knee Support is suitable for any children up to approximately the age of 12, and is a great choice for those who need support for a variety of conditions. Knee strains, sprains, instability and symptoms of juvenile arthritis are just some of the reasons your child may need, and benefit from this support.
The support isolates and restricts movement of the patella and helps relieve tension in the patella ligament, especially beneficial in conditions involving dysfunctional patella tracking, such as chondromalacia. Since the children's knee support encompasses the entire knee joint, it improves overall stability by eliminating unwanted glide and twisting at the knee. Weight-bearing pressure during movement is more evenly distributed over the joint, which helps ease juvenile arthritic and meniscus pain.
