Product Spotlight: Performance Wrap™ Knee Support
While there are many knee supports on the market, the materials and design of the Performance Wrap Knee Support make it a unique product that’s suitable for both everyday use and strenuous athletic activity, even water sports.
Can the Performance Wrap Knee help you tackle your knee issues and keep you on top of your game? Read on to find out.
Why Should I Use It?
Your knee is made up of many important structures, any of which can be injured. In fact, injuries often involve more than one component of the structural building blocks within the knee.
Pain and swelling are the most common signs of knee injury. In addition, the knee may “catch” or “lock up.” Many knee injuries can also cause instability, a feeling that the knee is giving way1, or unable to support the body, especially on uneven surfaces.
Patellar tracking disorder, a condition in which the kneecap moves out of place as the leg bends and straightens, can cause severe pain and swelling, and may even cause the knee to lose stability. Overweight and athletic people are particularly susceptible to this condition.
The Performance Wrap Knee supplements weakened structures of the knee and can assist with patellar tracking, helping improve stability and increase comfort.
What’s Special About It?
Originally designed by a professional surfer suffering from knee instability, the Performance Wrap Knee Support is designed to stay in place during sustained exposure to water. The neoprene material in the inner section of the knee support features a smooth surface which conforms to the knee and hugs your skin snugly even when soaking wet. This makes it perfect for water sports, triathletes switching between wet and dry events, or any activity that causes perspiration.
The wraparound design is easy to put on and adjust, with no need to remove shoes. In addition, users won’t have to slide the support over a sore knee, as with a sleeve design.
Finally, the popliteal cutout in the back (an open space for the back of the knee) is cool, comfortable, and eliminates painful bunching and pinching of the support at the back of the knee.
How Does it Work?
With any knee injury, swelling will usually vary and the proper fit of a support may change several times throughout any day. The one size fits most, wrap around design of this support fits snugly above and below the knee and can be easily adjusted to accommodate for an increase or decrease in swelling.
The unique, Crisscross Tensioning System is easily adjusted to provide support which enhances patellar tracking, improves stability, and provides compression for support.
The Performance Wrap enables people to get back to doing the things they love: running, jumping, swimming, and otherwise engaging in any activity that requires healthy knee mobility.
