Leg protectors, knee braces, and support. Leg skin protectors are designed and worn to protect sensitive skin from tears and abrasions. Knee brace support gives a wearer assistive substitute support for injured ligaments, after injury or post-op, while prophylactic knee braces are used to help prevent knee injuries.
There are a number of different types of leg and knee protectors that are available and are chosen based on need. Pull up sleeve leg braces that reduce pain, protect from bumps and scrapes. These provide some compression warmth and basic support. Wrap around knee braces and protectors enable a perfect fit and adjustable support. Leg protectors should be used in conjunction with a total fall prevention program.
