Rehband Patella Stabilizer
The patella, or kneecap, is an area which often needs extra support. Your patella may be hyper-mobile and, particularly if you play sports, the kneecap and surrounding ligaments can be prone to injury.
The Rehband Patella Stabilizer supports your kneecap, alleviating pain from an existing injury or operation, whilst also helping prevent future injury from occurring.
Who Can Make Gains with the Patella Stabilizer?
The Rehband Patella Stabilizer features a neoprene fabric construction which retains warmth, encouraging blood flow to the area to aid recovery. The stabiliser is flexible, comfortable and adjustable - the perfect companion for when you exercise.
This makes it ideal for any ambitious athlete who requires additional support to get the most out of their training.
