The LP Hinged Knee Stabilizer uses metal hinges to support and stabilize both the lateral and medial knee ligaments. The hinges provide a high level of support for your knee than stays. They also protect the joint from ligament damage and other soft tissue injuries. In addition, the hinges ensure a natural joint movement of the joint with the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone) kept in the correct relative positions. This will provide you with a high level of assurance that your knee ligaments are secure.
In addition to its hinges, the LP Hinged Knee Stabilizer also features dual Velcro straps. These will keep the brace firmly in position and give to the option to alter its compression level according to your circumstances.
The Hinged Knee Stabilizer also features an ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) pad around the kneecap to stabilize it and prevent displacement.
Like many other LP Support products, the Hinged Knee Stabilizer is manufactured from high grade closed cell neoprene and is enclosed in stretch nylon for extra comfort. Neoprene enables the brace to retain body heat, warm your knee joint and improve your blood circulation. These will reduce inflammation and swelling and will also speed recovery from injury.
