The fully adjustable cross-over strap give extra support around the knee cap and the steel springs on either side of the knee gives added stability without restricting movement.
How does it work?
Elastic compression provides support and helps reduce swelling. The compression element of the fabric helps to stimulate blood flow to the injured area which helps speed up recovery time, reduce cramp and muscle stiffness.
Steel springs along the side provide additional lateral (sideways) support. In addition, cross over straps wrap around providing a third layer of adjustable support.
