Knee Braces: Sports & Hinged Knee Brace

Knee brace is a type of orthosis that people wear in order to stabilize the knee joint and reduce pain.
Some people use knee braces for prevention - the most common use is to prevent knee injuries during sports. Others are prescribed after surgery in order to stabilize the knee region and control motion.
Knee braces are usually made from combinations of metal, foam, plastic, elastic material and straps. They could be custom made or come off the shelf in many sizes, colors and designs.
Knee braces work by providing compression, control and is some cases form of heat therapy to the damaged region.
