The Compression Support Knee Brace is more than just your basic elastic knee support sold at the big chain drug stores. Using our advanced knitting technology we made a 12-inch long elastic sleeve that is contoured to match the shape and bend of the leg. We also computer control the tension of the elastic in the production process to provide graduated compression which can help blood flow. The "cut out" at the kneecap helps reduce pressure on the knee cap while stabilizing the patella. In addition to function we focused on comfort. The Compression Support Knee Brace is free of seams on the inside of the brace and made with a special knit pattern over the patella. The patella pattern increases vertical stretch while helping to reduce bunching at the back of the knee when the leg is in the bent position. Knee compression sleeves give added support, increasing stability and helping to reduce swelling in an injured knee. Patients that have light sprains may be directed to use a compression sleeve during the early stages of rehabilitation. Other patients that have ongoing knee problems or chronic conditions may be recommended to use a sleeve on a daily basis. These sleeves are less restricting than most other knee supports and can be worn under loose fitting clothing. Knee compression sleeves can be used to treat:
- Light swelling.
- Light knee strains.
- Chronic inflammation.
- Degenerative joint disease.
