The critically additions to the Advanced model are
- houses medial and lateral flexible steel springs to promote stability without a loss of movement
- incorporates a cross over strap system to provide additional all-round stability and support. The tailored design and open patella also help prevent bunching behind the knee.
Although thinner than neoprene the compressive design of the elastic support offers a high level of support and is ideal for those who are allergic to or dislike the bulk/heat generation of neoprene and latex.
- The breathable compressive four-way stretch of the material targets support to the area’s most requiring it, mimicking the support and action planes of key ligaments and tendons to reinforce them.
