The patella support with a silicone pad typically consists of a sleeve-like structure made of elastic or neoprene material. The sleeve is designed to wrap around the knee joint, with an opening for the patella. It provides compression, warmth, and a snug fit to the knee area.
The key feature of the patella support is the silicone pad located over the patella. The silicone pad is strategically positioned to provide cushioning, shock absorption, and targeted pressure relief to the kneecap. It conforms to the shape of the patella, offering a comfortable and supportive fit. The silicone material helps distribute forces evenly around the patella, reducing discomfort during movements and providing additional stability.
The patella support is typically secured in place using adjustable straps or closures, such as Velcro straps or hook-and-loop fasteners. These allow for a customizable and secure fit, ensuring that the brace stays in place during activities.
The support with a silicone pad can be used during various activities, including sports, exercise, or everyday movements. It helps stabilize the patella, alleviate pain associated with patellar tendonitis or other knee conditions, and provides additional support during rehabilitation.
The elastic or neoprene material of the support is often breathable and moisture-wicking, allowing for airflow and preventing excessive sweating or discomfort. It is also lightweight and flexible, allowing for a range of motion during activities.
