Hinged Knee Brace

WHAT IS THE BEST HINGED KNEE BRACE?

Hinged knee braces provide the highest stability for the knee ligament. Hinged knee braces can be worn while playing high-impact sports such as basketball, football and rugby. It is ideal to recover from moderate to severe knee ailments as the hinge provides lateral support to the ligaments present in the knee.

Active support from the hinges of the knee brace can aid in arthritis pain, ACL or PCL tear, meniscus injuries and when recovering from a knee replacement surgery. Wearing it in daily life will improve your proprioception and protect your knee from future injury. Medical-grade compression provided in Bauerfeind products aids in lactic acid elimination and improved blood circulation.

The GenuTrain S Hinged brace is particularly good as it provides the highest level of support around the knee joint with its hinged bars and adjustable strapping system.
