LEG INJURY + FRACTURE
AND HOW KNEE INTERFACE CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED KNEE INTERFACE
Discomfort From a Leg Brace
Often times a leg or knee injury or fracture are treated with a leg or knee brace fitted over the leg. In addition, a physician may recommend wearing a brace after a cast is removed to further help the leg bones to heal. The purpose of the brace is to prevent movement and to protect further injury or re-injury. The brace must fit snugly against the leg, which can often lead to rubbing and irritation of the skin.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Protect From Painful Rubbing and Irritation
Knit-Rite Knee Interfaces help to provide protection from the rubbing and irritation of a leg or knee brace. Made of super soft and stretchy fibers, the knee interface fits comfortably right against the skin, preventing irritation-causing wrinkling or bunching between the leg and the brace. Additionally, knee interfaces prevent irritation by wicking moisture away from the skin, keeping you cool and dry. The light amount of compression contained in knee interfaces will help in any swelling that occurs from the leg injury or fracture.
