The Bio Skin Q Brace supports multi-directional tracking of the patella and uses an innovative “T” to help prevent dislocation. You can also get the Q Brace with a hinge if you need greater stability.
To prevent dislocation using the “T” strap, you have the option to attach the strap in one of several alternative positions. Each will help you to change the tractional forces exerted on the patella to move it in a different direction. In addition, the “T” straps helps exert dynamic traction; its force of traction increases as you move your knee through its range of motion.
The Q Brace uses Bio Skin’s tri-laminate Ultima material with Lycra inner and our surfaces as well as a polyurethane film in the middle. The film allows migration of moisture vapor through the brace and allows your perspiration to evaporate. This helps your body’s to perform its natural temperature regulation process. As a result, it leaves you feeling cool and comfortable under the brace. Ultima’s comfort oriented design is further augmented by its hypo-allergenecity and 100% freedom from latex and neoprene.
The Q Brace also comes with Cropper Medical’s patented SkinLok™ feature. SkinLok helps your brace to adhere more firmly to your skin as a reaction to water, lotion, perspiration or other sources of moisture. The reduction in slippage helps the Q Brace to remain in its intended position even through vigorous physical activity. This in turn renders the brace more effective in its job of healing and pain reduction.
In addition to the above features, the Q Brace is a universal left/right design and has an open patella design for enhanced comfort.
