The Push med Patella Brace applies local pressure to the patellar tendon and supports the patella. This relieves the insertion of the knee tendon and reduces the tractive force on the lower leg, thus reducing pain. The pad consists of a skin-compatible and viscoelastic polymer. The semi-riged cap inserted in the front part ensures even distribution of pressure. A proper anatomical fit and the pad material help the brace remain in place when walking.
Correct use of your brace requires a detailed diagnosis of the cause of your pain complaints or instability. Always consult your GP, a physiotherapist or a specialist before applying the brace.

One size fits most.
How do I choose a brace?
If a brace has been prescribed or recommended, it is wise to go to a professional establishment that specialises in medical aids or rehabilitation articles. Some physiotherapists sell braces and they can also give you good advice. Choosing the right size and type of brace requires additional know-how. Always consult an expert for this kind of specialised work.
