Playing sports such as football or running for long periods of time can lead to repetitive strain injury. This can be very painful and it can prevent you from staying active. Boots supports for repetitive strain can help you protect yourself during exercise and recover more quickly.
Repetitive strain injury of the knee affects the patella tendon, which runs down the front of the knee, below the knee cap. Boots Sport Knee Strap provides targeted compression to the area of weakness which reduces pain and swelling. It alleviates the excessive forces applied to the patella tendon during exercise and limits any shock or vibrations which can damage the tendon.
The strap has been designed with adjustable fasteners to ensure a customised fit for most body types. It is also reversible for right and left knees.
