Made for Soft 500 kneecap support designed for returning to sport after kneecap problems This kneecap support has a comfortable knit that wicks perspiration away so that you can exercise without worrying about your knees. The silicone ring stabilises your kneecap.
Wearing this knee support may be recommended if you have an unstable kneecap, runner's knee or patellar tendinitis, to help you get back into sport (basketball, football, handball, tennis, running, trail running, gymnastics, judo). It is easy to put on and has airy fabric and a shape designed to suit your knee and keep you comfy.
What is runner's knee?
The joint between the kneecap and the femur is unstable and can slip out of place or even fully dislocate, causing frequent knee and kneecap pain. Runner's knee is the main reason that sporty teenagers have to see a doctor about knee pain.
Which size of knee support do you need?
Measure around your leg, 8 cm above your kneecap. Then match the measurement taken with the following size chart:
Size 1: 36 - 39 cm
Size 2: 39 - 43 cm
Size 3: 43 - 47 cm
Size 4: 47 - 51 cm
Why protect your knees?
The knee is an important joint that is used heavily for sports activities. It absorbs impacts and stabilises you as well as withstanding huge stresses, particularly when running, jumping, landing and changing direction.
