Knee braces and supports are external medical devices designed to be used as a treatment device and to prevent injuries to knee by protecting and immobilizing the knees for proper healing. Mostly made from a combination of metal, plastic, foam material and elastic straps, there are four basic knee braces: Prophylactic braces, Functional braces, Rehabilitative braces, and Unloader/offloader braces.
Knee supports and braces, neoprene being the most popular material, are used following knee surgery, for sports & running, and during knee rehabilitation and can help to provide stability and support following knee injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture, torn knee cartilage, sprained medial knee ligament, posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) rupture, patella tendonitis, knee arthritis and runners knee.
Knee Braces For Comfort & Support
Green Lane Physiotherapy & Wellness has a wide range of knee braces suitable for all knee ligament injuries and meniscus tears. Our knee braces ensure support and reassurance by providing external stability for the knee joint.
Braces provide substantial support for the knee joint in the medio-lateral direction. The knee is supported by two non-axial leaf spring hinges that follow the natural rotation movements of the knee in a unique way. This means that flexion and extension of the knee are not hindered. Due to its slim construction, the braces are not noticeable when worn under clothes.
Knee braces provide support to your patella and surrounding ligaments while you play sports, recover from injury, prevent injuries, or get rid of knee pain. From mild to maximum support, we have a wide selection of braces, sleeves, straps, wraps, hinged and bands for your protection.
