What Can a Knee Brace Do for Me?
Knee supports are designed to stabilise and compress the knee, either to reduce pain and inflammation with an existing injury, or to prevent one from happening in the first place. If you've suffered an injury and want to heal quicker, or are regularly active and want to take steps to prevent injury, then this knee brace can help.
Featuring an intuitive strapping system with four adjustable straps, the level, location and tightness of the compression can be tailored by you. If there is pain on one side of your knee, tighten the straps in that area to get the most benefit. Once your pain has lessened and you decide instead to go for more flexibility, loosen the straps to get the fit that's right for you.
With two flexible stays running along either side of the knee, the Thuasne Strapping Knee Brace provides optimal levels of stability without compromising movement. The stays help correct and maintain the knees alignment as you move, preventing them from sliding out of place due to poor tracking.
Is this Knee Brace Comfortable?
Comfort is key for any knee brace, but especially so for braces meant for intense, physical activity. With elasticated stretch zones located on the patella and behind the knee, the Thuasne Novelastic Knee Brace provides that all important stretch and breathability.
