Although thinner than neoprene the compressive design of the support offers a high level of support and is ideal for those who are allergic to, dislike the bulk and/or heat generation of neoprene and latex. The breathable compressive four-way stretch of the material targets support to the area's most requiring it, mimicking the support and action planes of key ligaments and tendons to reinforce them. The compressive element also stimulates blood flow which can help prevent the build-up of lactic acid during and post activity. This reduces the prospect of cramp and stiffness whilst also being a valuable recovery and rehabilitation tool to injury. Recommended for: weak, stiff or aching knees Contains natural rubber latex, may cause allergic reaction in some users.
