Wearing a knee brace for knee support isn’t as uncommon for children as you may think. Kids are high energy and sometimes have accidents or are involved in a sports-related injury, or growth spurts that cause pain. The most popular type of knee brace for children is a knee sleeve. The flexibility of this type of best knee brace means they easily slide on and off while still retaining the right level of support.
A knee brace that has elasticity is mostly referred to as a knee sleeve or compression sleeve. They do not restrict movement, but the lightweight, breathable fabric is designed to support swelling and soreness. Although technically not referred to as a knee brace, the compression sleeve almost feels like a second skin, so children won’t really notice they are wearing one.
Even though your child will probably want to keep moving, even when they’re injured, a child’s knee brace will help keep the pressure of their kneecap. This means if you can’t keep them still, their injury is still supported.
The fun aspect of a children’s custom knee brace is that they come in a range of fun colours or with a superhero on them like our Marvel range for children. The material is durable and lasting for even the busiest child.
