Top joint support equipment chosen by athletes
and verified by orthopedics
A support compression sleeve is an elastic product that treats, rehabilitates, or supports joints in daily life or after surgeries and injuries.
This product partially immobilizes your joints and supports certain muscles. It creates pressure (compression) of a certain magnitude, which depends on the stiffness and type of fabric from which the product is made.
As the amplitude of joint motion is decreased, the recovery process gets faster, while the joint becomes “anchored” and the risk factors for injuries is reduced.
Unlike sleeves, support braces have rigid ribs, various inserts shaped like rings or plates, as well as fixing ties and fasteners to adjust the level of pressure. They can provide the complete immobilization of the joint or fix it in the required position.
With support braces, joints have a higher level of support and are used mostly to recover from serious injuries or surgeries.
There are different cases for the use of joint protection which can be combined into four major groups:
Compression sleeves are recommended to prevent fatigue and edema for people whose professional activity is associated with prolonged stress on the joints, who experience age-related changes, as well as to prevent damage to soft tissues during regular workouts.
The main indications for the use of support braces are the elimination of joint instability in the late stages of rehabilitation after injuries and operations, the support of ligaments and meniscus, and the prevention of soft tissue damage when experiencing increased stress and doing sports.
The main contraindication to wearing joint protection of any kind is the presence of open wounds, scuffs, cuts, dermatitis and other skin diseases.
In other cases, there are no contraindications to wearing support sleeves or braces but there is a limitation on the time of wearing. It shouldn’t be used 24/7 to avoid weakening of joints and to keep the full range of motion (ROM).
The best braces or sleeves are those that suit your lifestyle and comply with the recommendations of your physiotherapist. So, consult with your doctor first before choosing a compression sleeve. To choose correct braces or sleeves, you need to define the reason for wearing them: whether it is prevention or treatment. Prevention works for those who frequently deal with lifting heavy loads or practice active sports regularly. Other indications are excess weight or pregnancy which increase the pressure on the knee joint.
A wise step when buying support sleeves or braces is to find well-known manufacturers who make the tailoring in accordance with strict quality control while using accurate dimensional tables.
When buying a support sleeve, it’s necessary to know the measurements of the concerned area. When buying orthopedic support online, choose the retailer with an exchange and return option. The wrong size leads to a slack position of the sleeve, or vice versa, to squeezing the joint area too hard, which harms joints instead of healing them.
The size of the sleeve should fit the area so that your skin is not rubbed or irritated, the bandage does not fall off or squeeze the joint. In case you have a non-standard size, e.g. thin knees and a full thigh, choose products from those manufacturers who have an extended size range or a detachable design.
If support braces do not provide the proper level of support or are not properly sized, it will delay the healing process and create the causes for the reappearance of trauma.
Therefore, it is important to remember that only a doctor can choose semi-rigid and rigid support braces. Only braces of mild fixation can be chosen to alleviate the syndromes of arthrosis and arthritis, prevent herbs and reduce pain with mild joint injuries without consulting with a specialist.

The choice of elbow braces depends on the “nature” of the pain. It helps to decide which type to buy as there are different levels of fixation. A correctly selected elbow brace fixes the joint, reduces pain, relieves stress, prevents further joint deformation in the event there is damage to the joints and tendons.
Before wearing a sleeve, carefully read and follow the instructions.
Sleeves are best to wear in the morning when there is no joint swelling.
Check the position of the bandage so that it does not slip and does not squeeze unnecessary parts.
The clamps must never be twisted or slipped.
If they are detachable products, they must first be wrapped around the damaged joint and tightly fastened.
If the product has a silicone suprapatellar ring, it is necessary to place the joint fold strictly in this place.
