Ski knee-pad to relieve, support and secure fragile knees during snow sports.

Indications for EPITACT® ski knee brace
Are you an avid skier or snowboarder with a bum knee that's making you worry about getting back out on the slopes? The Physiostrap® Ski EPITACT® knee support prevents and relieves knee pain associated with patellar pathologies (patellofemoral syndrome, patellar instability and tendinopathy, sprains, osteoarthritis, ligament and meniscus injuries, etc.).

How does it work?
The effectiveness of EPITACT® knee support is based on the combined action of high-performance fabrics and a double silicone tendon, which provides excellent patellar support and knee stability during repeated flexion of the leg. Totally flexible, it preserves freedom of movement and is suitable for all sliding sports (skiing, snowboarding, skating, field hockey, rollerblading, skateboarding...).

How to use the knee support
Wash before 1st use.
For optimum hold: before use, do not apply moisturizing cosmetics and wash at least the silicone bands with soap and water to remove impurities.
To limit the risk of skin irritation, place the ski knee brace loosely on the thigh and do not wear it 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.

Do not use on skin lesions.
Do not use in cases of arteritis, severe varicose veins, sequelae of phlebitis 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 knee support?
The ski 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, solvents, etc.). Do not chlorinate. Do not iron or steam. Do not tumble dry. No dry-cleaning. Discard and replace as soon as cracks appear in the gel or damage to fabric or seams.

When and for how long should the ski knee support be worn?
The Physiostrap® Ski EPITACT® knee support is designed for beginners and experienced athletes with patellar pain (patellar syndrome, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, etc.). It is only worn dynamically (in movement), and can therefore be used for prevention or pain relief, as it preserves muscle capital. Away from sport, you can wear the medical knee brace all day long during your daily activities.

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.

How long does it last?
This knee support 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.

What's the difference with Physiostrap® sport EPITACT® knee brace?
The ski knee brace is specifically designed for sports involving repeated bending of the knee. Compared to Physiostrap® sport, the tendon encircling the kneecap is doubled to reinforce joint support. Also, the silicone bands on the thigh and calf are different to provide a stronger hold on the Physiostrap® ski.
