The new BRD Sport G18 Knee Brace, with anatomically contoured 3D knit construction, now is even more comfortable and easier to apply. The knee sleeve is intended to aid recovery and reduce pain and swelling in athletes with knee strain, instability, inflammation, runner’s knee, and osteoarthritis. It slides easily onto the leg but remains securely in place, with no bunching behind the knee. The medical-grade compression and viscoelastic silicone pad help redis- tribute pressure away from the patella to the surrounding soft tissues. All BRD products are made in the US and are latex-free and hand washable.
