Breg recently announced the launch of the company’s new FreeSport athletic knee sleeve and wrap.
Designed to minimize pain and provide support for athletes, the FreeSport products are constructed utilizing breathable and lightweight compression fabrics such as Sorbothane to offer flexibility and stability in the knee, according to a company press release. The FreeSport sleeve, a standard right/left brace, is made for patients with a narrower leg, whereas the FreeSport wrap is made for patients with a broader leg and can be worn on either knee.
“In engineering the FreeSport knee sleeve and wrap, we incorporated advanced materials and fabrics unique to the industry,” Brad Lee, president and CEO of Breg, said in the release. “Braces made of spacer fabric/foam or Neoprene can be bulky and uncomfortable. These factors can contribute to reduced patient compliance and restrict patient activity level.”
According to the company, the design and construction of the FreeSport products are meant to deliver comfort and dexterity, helping to promote patient compliance and, in turn, expedite recovery.
