What is are Hinged Knee Supports?

The exact construction can vary but it consists of a soft sleeve which wraps around the leg and fastens at the front with velcro straps. The sleeve extends from approximately mid-thigh to the lower portion of the calf. Pockets situated on the inner and outer sides of the support contain hinged metal side members which are shaped to the knee anatomy at supply.

What does it do?

It provides mild to moderate forces at the knee, depending on the type of side member/joint combination, to control and stabilise the joint.
