|NEW Aligua Elastic Hinged Knee Support|
The NEW Aligua Elastic Hinged Knee Support is part of an exclusive line of knee supports that combine high quality material and 3D knitted technology for therapeutic effect. The colour, design and range is new. Donjoy have used a high quality yarn for comfort and softness. This is one of various styles to answer the needs of different conditions. This knee support is soft and comfortable with bilateral aluminium hinges for grade 1 or 2 ligament injury support during more active return to sport with control of swelling (after diagnosis of the cause of the swelling e.g. ligament sprains not lasting more than 6 weeks).
It is suitable for the 2 years recommended proprioceptive & neuromuscular stimulation through compression following ACL reconstruction (especially in patients with concommitant grade 1 or 2 collateral ligament injury in the latter stages of healing).
The NEW Aligua Elastic Hinged Knee Support also supplies the proprioceptive feedback often missing even after minor injury. It is not as suitable as the Donjoy Ligament Knee Braces are for post-operative ligament reconstruction in the early stages or for skiing. It is Latex free, being constructed of Polyamide, Cotton and Lycra. It has been anatomically knitted with a multidirectional elastic fabric, with removable velcro straps above and below to adjust for a comfortable fit. This offers support and compression during the rehabilitation from minor acute and chronic knee injury.
During the later stages of rehabilitation following successful early rehabilitation from ACL injury or reconstruction with minor (grade 1 or 2) collateral ligament injury.
During rehabilitation from Grade 1 or 2 ligament sprains
