NEW Donjoy Strapping Elastic Knee SupportNEW Donjoy Strapping Elastic Knee Support

Introduction


The new NEW Donjoy Strapping Elastic Knee Support is part of an exclusive line of knee supports that combine high quality material and 3D knitted technology for therapeutic effect. The colour, design and range is new. Donjoy have used a high quality yarn for comfort and softness. This is one of various styles to answer the needs of different conditions. This knee support is soft and comfortable with bilateral flexible stay elements for minor ligament injury support during more active return to sport with control of swelling (after diagnosis of the cause of the swelling e.g. ligament sprains not lasting more than 6 weeks).

NEW Donjoy Strapping Elastic Knee Support is suitable for the 2 years recommended proprioceptive & neuromuscular stimulation through compression after successful rehabilitation from ACL rupture or reconstruction. The NEW Donjoy Strapping Elastic Knee Support has stays for those athletes with a collateral ligament injury as well as a recovering ACL injury or reconstruction.

It is Latex free, being constructed of Polyamide, Cotton and Lycra. It has been anatomically knitted with a multidirectional elastic fabric, with a looser knit on the patella to control minor local oedema. This offers support and compression during the rehabilitation from acute and chronic knee injury.
