The brace is reinforced laterally and medially by the versatile engineered design with stabilising straps and a range of sizes allow a custom fit.

Who Should Use This?

This brace can be used from adolescence into middle age to support the knee joint and its ligaments. It is a very good sports or heavy use brace suitable for most sports including contact sport (rules allowing). The brace is reinforced laterally and medially by a patented Triaxial Hinge that allows maximum mobility but protects against valgus and varus strain protecting the lateral ligament and medial ligament complex. The engineered design and stabilising straps allow a custom fit which affords some protection to the cruciate ligaments although it is not suitable for complete cruciate ruptures and an unstable knee.

This is our best selling winter sports brace and very popular with skiers and snowboarders. It is commonly used following injury to the medial and lateral ligaments of the knee or following anterior or posterior cruciate injury or repair. More specifically it is suitable for:

  • Collateral knee ligaments injuries medial / lateral
  • Collateral knee ligaments injuries medial / lateral
  • Minor cartilage (meniscal) injuries to provide added protection
  • Following anterior or posterior cruciate repair and return to training this brace provides extra reassurance and support – specialist advice should be taken.
  • Weak or vulnerable knees when extra support is needed
  • Use when skiing and snowboarding
  • Use when training brace
  • Use as a sporting brace (where rules allow)
  • Use in manual jobs to provide extra support to injured or inflamed joints

How Does it Work?

Support is provided by the reinforced HydraCinn fabric exclusive to Mueller and is a tough high performance fabric with moisture wicking and anti-microbial characteristics. The elastic compression provided helps to reduce the potential for swelling to develop in the knee joint (joint effusion) The warmth and support provided reduces injury risk and aid optimum function and flexibility. The brace is reinforced by a clever patented tri-axial hinge that allows near normal knee mobility and function giving extra support to the ligaments and connective tissues. Its versatile design and stabilising straps allow a custom fit.

Sizing and Technical Information:

Physio Warehouse's therapists advise this brace is an excellent and highly popular product in this price range and is often worn by individuals who are susceptible to knee ligament strains who require a lightweight functional brace that allows them to train providing extra support and protection. This brace is not suitable if frank instability ( rupture or severe tears causing instability ) is present in the cruciate + / or collateral ligaments and for these situations a custom made brace is advised - seek the advice of your doctor or physiotherapist..
