Osteoarthritis is a degenerative complaint caused by general wear and tear or a previous injury and can affect any joint.
The smooth cartilage that covers the ends of bones in the joint wears thin and becomes rough, pitted and brittle. This causes stiffening of the joint and can cause pain and inflammation.
Osteoarthritis is nearly always diagnosed when the affected joint becomes painful or stiff to move.
Most supports are made from material with very limited stretch which is why they slip and roll down or are stiff and restrictive and often need Velcro straps to fit.
Our material is a high stretch fabric, which is shaped to contour to the body: fitting comfortably to provide superior cushioning and support.
