The OTC 2548 range-of-motion knee stabilizer offers exceptional service from knee surgery through post-op rehabilitation. It is made from Orthotex fabric, an open 3-dimensional knit that is a non-latex alternative to neoprene. It offers breathability, elasticity, therapeutic compression, comfort and heat control. It is less hot than neoprene, thus appropriate for long term wear or wear in warm climates, and ideal for wearers who are allergic to or irritated by neoprene fabric.
Use For: Post-operative rehabilitation, patellar misalignment and instability, cruciate and collateral ligament support, medial/lateral cartilage support, patellar tendonitis
