Thuasne Genu Action Knee Support
After a knee injury, you might be raring to get back into running or going to the gym, but your body will likely disagree with you. This can be frustrating, particularly if a half marathon is just around the corner. The Thuasne Genu Action Knee Support provides firm compression to your knee, helping to reduce pain and instability in the area so you can get back on your feet as soon as possible.
Who Can Make Gains with the Genu Action?
The Genu Action Knee Brace not only helps you recover from a knee injury faster, but it also improves your proprioception. This helps with your balance and stability, which is particularly important for your performance as it will contribute to the prevention of future injuries.
