When purchasing a knee brace, it is important to understand exactly what that knee support is capable of. Looking through many of the Bort knee braces and it becomes apparent that they have many similarities and can be difficult to determine their differences at first glance. The Asymmetric brace works to comfort the knee cap with medial and distal support.
Medial and Distal in the Knee
Confused? Well it can be fairly complex when describing medial and distal directions focused on the knee. Medial is also a part of the definition of MCL—Medial Collateral Ligament—but in this case think of medial as being important in the stages of extending the knee. Likewise, distal should be thought of as the opposite. Knee is “distal” to the trunk of the body, and should be viewed as the bending of the knee.
The Bort Asymmetric Flexible Knee Brace can Help:
- Knee problems of varying degrees to the ligament in the knee.
- Since the MCL is affected in these situations because it resists the stresses from movement that knee bracing tries to heal.
Patella Support Brace Features:
- Like many Bort knee stays, the Asymmetric focuses on the patella, or knee cap. With this comes the guidance of the medial and distal movements of the knee to help support, stabilize, and comfort the knee in the best way possible.
- Likewise, the silicone knee pads in the brace offer compression and comfort to the knee while still allowing mobility.
- There is a knee splint on each side of the brace to support lateral movement making this a great support for knee exercise activities at later stages of recovery.
