UNIVERSAL JUMPER KNEE STRAP
Stressed patellar tendon
Some sports requires a lot of jumping (volleyball, basketball, long jump). That’s why, patellar tendon injury is called Jumper’s Knee. This is tendonitis, meaning inflammation of a patellar tendon. The patients suffer from pain in the front area of the knee. The pain increases and worsens during jumping or bouncing. Stressed patellar tendon is caused also by: shortened quadriceps muscle and hamstring muscles and poor biomechanical control of patellofemoral joint.
Recovery time can be recorded even in 12 months!
Because of that, immediate and multi-faceted treatment has to be introduced. Apart of strengthening exercises, you should use our Jumper’s Knee strap OKD-19, providing excellent support and relief for stressed tendon.
Jumper’s knee brace OKD-19 is anatomic-shaped and universal strap, equipped with supporting patellar pad providing excellent knee cap stabilization. The strap supports the patellar tendon and elastic fabric provides excellent compression.
This solution reduces pain and supports patellofemoral joint.
The brace OKD-19 is made of our UniPren fabric.
UniPren is universal 3-layered fabric made of external elastic polyamide self-gripping layer and internal neoprene foam with elastic jersey. Our fabric is soft and elastic and not knitted, what prevents skin against the skin abrasions in the compression zones. Self-gripping function of UniPren allows to fit the brace precisely. The material is waterproof!
Jumper’s Knee strap OKD-19 off-loads inflamed patellar tendon and reduces the pain. It prevents also against the patellofemoral pain syndrome that is mainly due to excessive patellofemoral joint pressure from poor kneecap alignment, which in time, affects the joint surface behind the kneecap.
