Sport knee brace that relieves, supports and secures your knee as you resume sporting activities.

Indications for EPITACT® sport knee brace
Your knee is fragile and you'd like to resume your sporting activities with peace of mind? Physiostrap® Sport knee brace prevents and relieves knee pain associated with patellar pathologies (patellofemoral syndrome, patellar instability and tendinopathy, osteoarthritis, etc.). Its reassuring presence makes it easier to return to sport.

How does it work?
The combined action of its technical tissues and silicone tendon keeps the patella in line, effectively stabilizing the knee. Totally flexible, this sports knee brace guarantees total freedom of movement and compatibility with all sports (running, hiking, cycling, trail running, tennis, soccer, basketball, swimming...).

Physiostrap® Sport tests
A study(1) has shown that knee support is improved by more than 43% in the presence of the PHYSIOstrap® Sport knee brace.
It was also tested on 94 athletes from INSEP (Institut National du Sport, de l'Expertise et de la Performance)(2). After just 10 uses, pain relief and a sense of stability improved by over 30%.
(1)Study carried out in 2014 on 10 patients by the CORIMA company to assess the lateral offset of the patella in static with and without the sport knee brace.
(2)Test carried out between November 2015 and January 2017 in the form of questionnaire responses from 94 athletes with patellar pathology, practicing various sporting disciplines.

Instructions for use
Wash sport knee pads before 1st use.
For optimum wear and tear: before use, do not apply moisturizing cosmetics, and at the very least, wash the silicone strips with soap and water to remove any impurities.
For extreme situations (sports with rapid acceleration and deceleration, long-distance or steep inclines, high temperatures), wear shorts over Physiostrap®.
To reduce the risk of skin irritation, do not wear the knee brace in a prolonged lying or sitting position (sleeping, driving, etc.). In the event of pain, swelling, discomfort or any other abnormal reaction, discontinue use and consult a physician.

Contraindications for sports knee pads
Do not use on skin lesions.
Do not use in cases of arteritis, varicose veins, phlebitis sequelae or edema (lymphatic/ venous) of the leg and/or thigh, to avoid impeding circulation. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Do not use with compression stockings.

How to care for your kneepad
The sport kneepad is machine-washable at 30°C, or hand-washable (without rubbing) with soap and water. Do not use detergents or stain removers (bleach, acetone, nail polish remover, etc.). Allow to dry naturally. Discard and replace if gel cracks, fabric or seams deteriorate.

When and for how long should I wear my sports knee brace?
PHYSIOstrap® is a kneepad for athletes with patellar pathologies (patellar syndrome, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, etc.). It should therefore be put on just before your sporting activity, and should only be worn dynamically (in motion). It can therefore be used as a preventive measure or to relieve pain, as it preserves muscle capital. When you're not doing sport, you can wear the medical knee brace all day long for everyday activities.

How long does it last?
The Physiostrap® sports knee brace is made from hard-wearing fabric and high-quality materials, giving it an average lifespan of 6 months, provided you follow the instructions for use and care.

How to choose the right size?
Using a tape measure, measure the circumference of your knee in a semi-flexed position, starting from the center of the kneecap. Transfer the measurement to the size guide. If you hesitate between two sizes, choose the smaller one.
