Indications for the EPITACT ® sports knee brace

Your knee is fragile and you want to resume your sporting activities with complete peace of mind? The Physiostrap ®  Sport knee brace prevents and relieves knee pain linked to patellar pathologies (patellofemoral syndrome, patellar instability and tendinopathy, osteoarthritis, etc.). Its reassuring presence thus promotes the resumption of sport.    

How does it work?

The combined action of its technical fabrics and its silicone tendon keeps the patella in line and effectively stabilizes the knee . Totally flexible, this sports knee brace guarantees complete freedom of movement and compatibility with all practices (running, hiking, cycling, trail running, tennis, football, basketball, swimming, etc.).     

Physiostrap ®  Sport tests

A study (1)  showed that knee support is improved by more than 43% in the presence of the PHYSIOstrap ® sports knee brace .

Furthermore, it was tested on 94 athletes from INSEP (National Institute of Sport, Expertise and Performance) (2) . After just 10 uses, pain relief and feeling of stability are improved by more than 30%.

(1) Study conducted in 2014 on 10 patients by the company CORIMA to evaluate the lateral displacement of the patella statically with and without the sports knee brace.

(2) Test carried out between November 2015 and January 2017 in the form of responses to a questionnaire among 94 athletes with patellar pathology, practicing different sporting disciplines.

    Usage tips

    • Wash the sports knee brace before first use.
    • For optimal hold: before use, do not apply moisturizing cosmetics and at least wash the silicone strips with water and soap to remove impurities.
    • If you encounter problems with fit in extreme situations (sports with rapid acceleration and deceleration, races with steep or long distances, high temperature), wear shorts over the Physiostrap ® .
    • To limit the risk of irritation to the skin, do not wear the knee support while lying down or sitting for prolonged periods (sleeping, traveling in the car, etc.). If you experience pain, swelling, discomfort or any other abnormal reaction, discontinue use and consult a doctor.

    Contraindications of the sports knee brace

    • Do not use on a skin lesion.
    • Do not use in cases of arteritis, significant varicose veins, after-effects of phlebitis or edema (lymphatic/venous) of the leg and/or thigh so as not to obstruct circulation. If in doubt, seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist.
    • Do not use with support stockings.

    How to maintain your knee brace?

    Frequently Asked Questions

    When and for how long should you wear the sports knee brace?

    PHYSIOstrap ®  is a knee brace for athletes with patellar pathology (patella syndrome, tendinitis,  osteoarthritis, etc.). It must therefore be put on just before your sporting activity and can only be worn dynamically (in motion). It can therefore be used for prevention or to relieve pain because it preserves muscle mass. Outside of sports, you can wear the  medical knee brace  all day during daily activities.

    What is its lifespan?

    The Physiostrap ® sports knee brace  has a durable fabric and quality materials which give it a lifespan of 6 months on average, provided you follow the  use and maintenance instructions.

    How to choose the right size ?

    Using a tape measure, measure the circumference of your knee in a semi-flexed position starting from the center of the kneecap. Then report the measurement in the size guide accessible at the bottom of the page. If you are unsure between two sizes, choose the smaller one.
