knee supports

If you have an injured or painful knee, wearing a knee brace is highly recommended. Most athletes use different knee supports to prevent potential injuries, especially when engaging in contact sports. In general, knee bracesare created from various materials such as foam, metal, plastic, straps, and other elastic materials. Also, knee supports are designed in different colors, sizes, and materials.

Basic types of knee braces

Knee braces have four basic types:

  1. Prophylactic braces. These knee braces safeguard the knees from any injury when competing in contact sports such as football or basketball.
  2. Functional braces. When an injury or an accident occurred, these braces are used to provide knee support.
  3. Rehabilitative braces. These braces are used to minimize knee movements, especially when the knee is recuperating after an injury or surgery.
  4. Patellofemoral braces. These braces assist in the smooth movement of the kneecap over the knee joint.
Other classification of knee brace

Knee braces can be classified as sleeves, supports, stabilizers, and hinges. Knee sleeves have various sizes, which you can slip on over the knee. Knee supports can be adjusted and usually wrapped around the knee. Both are used with a basic support, providing warmth and compression. Knee stabilizers have steel springs found on both knee sides necessary for advanced support. The hinged knee braces have hinges, enabling the knee to shift in such a way that is near to the knee’s natural movement for the most advanced support.
