The Hinged Knee Support consists of a soft sleeve which wraps around the leg and fastens at the front with velcro straps. The sleeve extends from approximately mid-thigh to the lower portion of the calf. The knee brace can support and stabilize an injured knee. It can limit movement while the knee heals after injury or surgery. It may also reduce pain and pressure if people have arthritis in the knee. Hinged Knee Support is very effective and useful.
