Knee Supports - Knee brace guide

Despite metal stays or springs, these braces do allow a good range of motion at the knee, suitable for most sports and activities. If you need to limit the range of motion this can be achieved with a brace that has a pin-stop mechanism. Whilst providing the highest level of support, these braces also allow a very good range of motion. Most also have a hyperextension stop, meaning the knee cannot be straightened past 0 degrees.


Elbow Supports and Braces explained

An alternative is the epicondylitis brace, which is usually a neoprene support with a strap around the upper forearm which can be used to apply pressure to treat both conditions. Turning it around so it is worn over the front of the elbow with the large end over the inner elbow will treat golfers elbow. Supports and braces for the elbow joint are particularly diverse, depending on what injury you require the support for.


Shin and Calf Supports

This is wrapped around the calf muscle and can provide a larger amount of support (depending on how firm it is wound) and compression to the calf muscle. Neoprene Shin and calf Support.


Knee Braces for Sport and Exercise

When choosing a knee support for sport, it is important to consider what type of support is suitable and permitted for your sport, that it provides the level of support you require and most importantly, that it is comfortable to wear.
