Thuasne Silistab Genu Patella Knee Brace
Whether you're a professional athlete or a warrior on the weekends, your knees are one of the most commonly injured areas of your body. Recovery from such injuries can be slow, which is time that could have been spent making leaps and bounds in your training. The Thuasne Silistab Genu Patella Knee Brace has been designed to stabilise and support your knee to help you get back on your feet sooner.
Who Can Make Gains with the Silistab Genu Patella?
Although most knee braces tend to simply compress the knee, providing stimulation to the area helps speed up the recovery process. The Thuasne Silistab Genu Patella Knee Brace has a silicone patella insert to provide proprioceptive stimulation, allowing you to return to full mobility as quickly as possible. This can help you stay on track for that gold medal or personal best.

The Thuasne Patella Knee Brace can be used for the following conditions:

Flexible lateral reinforcements are a key feature for the Silistab Genu Patella Brace as they help increase the supportive nature of the sleeve. The support also has a lateral silicone anti-slip system to ensure the brace doesn't move out of place even while you train.
Open or Closed Patella
The Patella Knee Brace is available in either white or black. The white version has an open patella and the black model has a closed patella. While the closed model protects the area further, the open version improves airflow in and around your knee, which can help speed up your recovery.
The Silistab Genu is available in two different colours: white or black. Each of the models are available in six different sizes. Measure the circumference of your knee in the middle of the patella with your knee bent slightly then consult the table below to find your size.
|Size ||Knee Circumference (cm) |
|Extra Small ||31 - 33cm |
|Small ||34 - 36cm |
|Medium ||37 - 39cm |
|Large ||40 - 42cm |
|Extra Large ||43 - 45cm |
|XX-Large ||46 - 48cm |
