Soft Knee Braces have great Support Benefits

October 25, 2007

Soft braces or “sleeves” are made of stretchable material such as synthetic cloth material or neoprene. Soft braces are designed to be either pulled up to fit around the knee or strapped into place using velcro or another similar method.

Soft braces have the benefits of being easy to use and easy to care for. They function by giving the knee a small amount of support. This support may be more of a function of proprioceptors (nerves that provide feedback as to orientation in space) around the knee than it is of actual knee stabilization since cloth or neoprene are not stiff enough to restrict motion.

Neoprene material is known to provide the highest heat retention and insulation of any material. Unlike elastic braces which can stretch only in two directions, neoprene braces can stretch in four. Neoprene’s unique characteristics allow it to support your knee without bunching up and maintains its shape. Neoprene usually lasts longer than standard elastic braces. Many athletes use this type of brace in cold weather sports, such as skiing and ice skating.

Dr. Robert Molloy, an orthopedic surgeon at Cleveland Clinic, said a knee brace is a device that is worn around the knee to provide support and reduce excessive loading on a damaged joint. The simplest type of brace is a one-piece sleeve made of an elastic rubber — neoprene — that fits snugly around the knee area, which is available at Medex01.com.

Therma Moist Heating Pad by Drive

October 10, 2007

 

The Therma Moist Heating Pad requires no water to be added, as an outer flannel cover draws and retains humidity from the air. As the heating pad warms, the moisture is released from the flannel cover and onto the treated area. The heating pad is ideal for the treatment of arthritis, back pain, sprains and strains, muscle soreness, neck pain, headaches and sports injuries.

To clean, remove cover from heating pad. Machine or hand wash. Use mild detergent in cool water. Hang to dry or use set on cool gentle cycle in dryer.

Features:

* The positioning strap with Velcro-type closure ensures a secure, proper fit for maximum treatment

* The easy to use hand control features four heat settings and four time settings (Heat settings: 115/130/150/165 degrees Fahrenheit, 45/55/65/75 Celsius – Time settings: 15/30/45/60 minutes)

* Moist heat therapy is more effective than dry heat because moisture transmits heat more efficiently than air

* The heating pad will automatically shut off after treatment

* Three sizes are available to provide added convenience
