They’re more commonly used for treating knee pain and providing patella support, but are knee braces also practical for runners?
Orliman Rodisil closed patella knee brace
- Breathable elastic knee support with material made of up to 140 filaments, which provides active compression in 3 dimensions, with closed kneecap and with distal and proximal extremes designed to lighten the pressure preventing excessive compression.
Incorporates lateral metallic reinforcements to improve medio-lateral stabilisation. Thesereinforcements have a polycentric articulationwith a minimum flexion of 7 degrees to preventhyperextension of the knee and to avoidgenurecurvatum.
Developed using three-dimensional knitted fabric, providing greatertransversal elasticity at the same time as it exerts the necessarycompression in each area, this new knitted fabric concept providesbetter hold on the skin and stability during movement, and does notrequire any fastening system, incorporates a visco-elastic cushion in ringform which manages the kneecap control, with blockage, in an upperand lower lateral sense.
- Episodes of irritation (tendomyopathy, first phase ligamentosis, mildarthrosis, post-traumatic and post-operative arthritis).
- Sensation of instability (patellar and/or medio-lateral).
- Correction of mild genu-recurvatum; also indicated for the correctionof varus-valgus of the knee, linked with instabilities of the knee.
