Why wear this knee support?
The Prevent 500 knee brace can be used as a preventative measure by applying the compression that you need to support your joint and stimulate proprioception when playing sport (basketball, football, handball, tennis, badminton, running, trail running, gymnastics, judo). With its FEELMOTION technology, you have better movement control without being restricted, and without the product slipping out of place.
What is proprioception?
Proprioception is the ability to know where the different parts of your body are in space. The better your proprioception, the better your balance and the more controlled your movements. It also helps prevent the risk of injury.
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.
