The Epitact PhysioStrap Arthritic Knee Support helps to secure and hold in place fragile, tender or painful joints. It can be worn on a daily basis during any kind of activity.
INDICATIONS: Wearing the PhysioStrap helps to relieve and secure a fragile or painful knee (osteoarthritis, patellar pathologies, fragile ligaments etc.). It contributes to a sense of stability that encourages you to continue or resume daily activities while you forget all about the knee support.
SPECIFICS: It is crucial to keep walking in order to combat the aggravation of osteoarthritis. The knee cartilage is a poorly vascularised tissue, so its blood supply is dependent on joint movement. The PhysioStrap support helps you to continue daily activities in order to preserve your mobility.
DESIGN: Extra-thin and discreet, the PhysioStrap has been specially developed to be worn under all types of clothing (trousers, skirt etc.). The technology is concentrated into a device of under 40g, and it will not slip or trigger any further discomfort behind the knee (popliteal fossa).
Wearing the EPITHELIUMFLEX PhysioStrap helps to relieve and protect a delicate or painful knee (osteoarthritis, patella diseases, fragile ligaments, etc.). It helps to bring a feeling of stability and helps you to continue or return to everyday activities.
To ensure that blood circulation is not impeded, do not use if you have arthritis, severe varicose conditions, sequelae of phlebitis or oedema (lymphatic/venous) of the lower leg and/or the thigh. Do not use with compression stockings. Do not use on a skin lesion.
PRECAUTIONS FOR USE:
- Wash the PhysioStrap before the first use.

WEARING THE SUPPORT:
In order to wear the knee brace optimally:
