General Application: Great for keeping the knee warm and providing moderate support.
Applications: Pro-Tec Athletics’ Short Sleeve is worn to reduce symptoms of tendinitis, arthritis, chondromalacia, and other knee ailments.
How it Works: Short Sleeve provides compression to the knee region surrounding the patella. The sleeve provides warmth and promotes circulation, enhancing the healing process. In addition, this brace has an infrapatellar buttress which helps support the patella and may improve patellar tracking.
Design Theory: Short Sleeve is not quite as hot or cumbersome as most knee sleeves because it is modified below the knee to reduce sweat. It includes an infrapatellar buttress, U-shaped tubing within a Cool Max material, to cradle the patella. The open patella is to keep unwarranted pressure off of the knee cap.
