The Brace Centre
"In my opinion the Pro-Tec knee brace is the best patella knee brace available today"
Great for alleviating moderate knee pain, especially in areas under and surrounding the knee cap, the Pro-Tec Patella
Knee Strap helps alleviate symptoms of tendinitis, chondromalacia, Iliotibial Band Syndrome, Osgood-Schlatter's Disease, and other knee ailments. Simple and easy to use, and used by athletes and medical practitioners.
What Causes These Types of Injuries:
Very often the causes are related to overuse, repetitive strain and biomechanical issues, such as pronation, all of which may cause injury to the knee.
How It Works:
The Knee Pro-Tec provides compression on the patellar tendon, which helps to spread pressure uniformly across the patellar tendon, reducing discomfort and irritation. This compression can also help stabilize the patella, improving its tracking. The Knee Pro-Tec also absorbs stress and strain to the knee, reducing vibrations in the femoral groove.
The Knee Pro-Tec patellar tendon strap is designed to provide consistent pressure on the patellar tendon. The strap is made from neoprene, which stretches, allowing it to stay comfortably in place. Tubing, sewn into the neoprene, is used to provide gentle compression and a plastic loop is utilized to make it easier to adjust. The strap attaches with a velcro closure.
- Small 25-30cm (10"-12")
- Medium 31-35cm (12 1/8"-13 5/8")
- Large 36-38cm (13 ¾"-15 ¼")
- Xlarge 39-43cm (15 ¼"-17")
- (Circumference measured just below kneecap - all sizes are approximate)
- Centre the tubing directly under the patella knee cap, velcro facing out. Wrap the knee Pro-Tec around the knee so that the strap fits into the groove just below the patella.
- Feed the tongue through the buckle and pull back across the knee
- Secure the strap below your knee for a snug, comfortable fit.
- DO NOT adjust the strap too tightly or wear while sleeping
Rinse in warm water. Drip dry only. Pro-Tec Athletics recommends rinsing the brace after each use to remove all body salt, thereby prolonging the lifetime of the brace.
