Sizing and Technical Information:
All medi supports are designed with functional every day use in mind. The carefully manufactured materials used have achieved the German quality standard award - Oko-Tex standard 100 - and are suitable for those with sensitive skin. All braces wick moisture away from their inner surface to evaporate from the outer surface and have anti-bacterial properties to reduce odour formation. Our testers found this extremely efficient even during long hard training sessions.
They incorporate a clever non slip system with precision weaves to minimise creasing during movement.
Physio Warehouse's therapists advise this brace is a good supportive brace for those who require support in the home, office or light manual working environment. It is not suitable for heavy or dirty outdoor jobs or for contact sports.
