Thuasne Patella Strap
The kneecap is prone to instability, particularly when you play sports. This can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort, making it feel as though playing football or going running is a far-off dream. The Thuasne Patella Strap helps relieve pressure in the patella tendon and supports the kneecap as a result of its anatomical shape.
Who Can Make Gains with the Patella Strap?
Sports like running or long jump can put pressure on your knees and cause discomfort of the patella tendon. It's therefore integral that you support the area to ensure your condition doesn't worsen as this can affect your ability to play. The Patella Strap has been designed to support your kneecap and relieve pressure on the patella tendon, allowing you to remain focused on your next sporting event.
Key Features and Benefits
- Applies local pressure over patella tendon
- Supports kneecap due to its anatomical shape
- Available in one singular size
- Adjustable strap suitable for most people
- Relieves pressure on patella tendon
Indications for the Patella Support
The Patella Strap can be used for the following conditions:
- Patella tendon disease
- Supports the kneecap
With its anatomical shape, the Patella Strap supports and stabilises your kneecap as much as possible. As the straps can be adjusted, you can choose the extent to which you compress the area. The bandage also applies local pressure over the patella tendon to help speed up the recovery process.
Owing to its anatomical design, the Patella Bandage can be worn underneath your clothes with minimal bulk or discomfort. This allows you to get the support you need while you go about your day, or else wrap up warm while you're on a run in the winter.
Why Is It Important to Protect Your Patella?
The knees are prone to wear and tear, particularly if you lead an active lifestyle. Sportspeople depend on their knees even more than most people do and any issues in the area can be debilitating to your performance. Conditions like Osgood-Schlatter disease and tears in the patella tendon can cause inflammation and instability in and around the tendon, which can only be improved with sufficient rest and support.
Sizing of the Thuasne Strap
The Thuasne Patella Bandage is available in one universal size to fit most knees. To find out if the strap will fit you, measure the circumference of your knee just below your kneecap. The strap will fit a circumference of between 29cm and 50cm.
