The Bio Skin Gladiator – Front Closure knee brace uses a rigid hinge to protect knee ligaments, including after reconstruction. Its rigid strapping system firmly anchors it to the leg, avoiding the need for larger, more expensive braces. As shown in the image below, the hinges are adjustable, with pins that may be easily set to limit flexion and/or extension.
Like the other Bio Skin front closure knee braces, the Bio Skin Gladiator- Front Closure uses the patented Ultima 2SL material to create a truly customizable wrap around design.The material itself is Velcro compatible so the Velcro closures can adhere anywhere on the front of the brace to fit virtually any shape of the leg. As with all other Bio Skin materials, Ultima 2SL is hypoallergenic, 100% neoprene and latex free.
Along with most of the Bio Skin product line, the Gladiator Front Closure knee brace features SkinLok™ , which promotes adherence to the skin in the presence of perspiration, thus reducing slippage. The ability of the brace to remain firmly in place ensures that pressure will continue to be applied to the correct area, even during intense physical activity. This increases its effectiveness in reducing pain and promoting rapid healing.
