The wrap provides light support without restricting movement. Gentle compression can help reduce mild edema and postsurgical effusion. It can also improve the ability to sense movement within joints and joint position, helping to reduce incidents of sprains or strains. This support is ideal for those with an active lifestyle who suffer from mild injuries, aching, and/or weakened knees.
Designed for comfort, the Swede-O Elastic Knee Wrap is constructed from heavy duty hook and loop compatible material for long term use. The soft elastic material is comfortable against the skin. For a customized fit, the wrap easily adjusts to increase or decrease compression and to accommodate for variations in swelling.
