The LP Hinged Knee Stabilizer has metal hinges to provide support and stability for medial and lateral ligaments. These metal hinges provide the highest possible level of support for the knee and protection against ligament damage and similar injuries. They ensure a natural movement of the joint. With the hinges keeping your thigh bone and shin bone in their correct positions relative to each other, you can be confident that you are unlikely to overstretch or tear your knee ligaments.
The LP Hinged Knee Stabilizer also has two hook and loop straps. These hold the brace firmly in place and allow you to adjust the compression level as needs or circumstances change.
The brace also has an EVA pad around the kneecap. This serves the function of stabilizing the kneecap and preventing patellar displacement.
The LP Hinged Knee Stabilizer is made from the high quality closed cell neoprene and has a stretch nylon cover for comfort. Since it is made of neoprene, it can retain body heat that it uses to warm the knee joint and improve blood circulation. This in turn will lead to less swelling and inflammation and a quicker recovery from injury.
For Whom Would The LP Hinged Knee Stabilizer Be A Good Choice?
As mentioned above, this brace offers the highest level of protection, with hinges designed to ensure that the knee can be used as freely as needed without unnaturally tearing or stretching the ligaments.It would therefore be a great choice for someone who is active in sports requiring vigorous physical activity.
It would also be a good choice if you have suffered a previous knee injury and are experiencing knee instability as a result. It will allow you to pursue your regular activities while giving your knee a chance to recover fully.
