The New Breg FreeRunner Knee Brace
Once and a while, a manufacturer develops a knee brace that far exceeds most people’s expectations in terms of comfort, function and support. Many knee braces usually can satisfy one or even two of these requirements, but when all three features are met, we have a home run.
The R&D department at Breg has come up with a revolutionary knee brace that addresses many of the problems and complaints that athletes have when wearing a knee brace, and in particular a patellofemoral support.
The New Breg FreeRunner Knee Brace is a fabric style brace designed for athletes suffering from patellofemoral disorders such as patella tracking, subluxation and other patella related overuse conditions. The unique design of this brace provides dynamic patella stabilization of the knee when the knee is fully extended, but relaxes during flexion of the knee.
One of the most common complaints with these types of braces is slippage. Breg has addressed this problem by providing elastic banding around the ends of the brace and silicone strips for better skin traction. The brace is extremely lightweight at only 7 oz. and is very low profile, so it can be worn under clothing.
The Breg FreeRunner also has medial and lateral hinges on either side for additional knee stability and support. Its front closure design allows for customized fit and easy application. Cleaning the brace is easy as hand washing in a sink with cold water with mild soap.
The new Smart-Zone Compression fabric provides a combination of moderate compression for anatomic support and light compression for a non-binding fit. This is by far one of the most comfortable patellofemoral braces on the market.
Application of the brace is easy. If you forget how to put it on, Breg has a QR code on the brace that you can scan with your phone or tablet for a quick and easy reminder.
The brace is ideal for a wide range of patella conditions such as patellar tendonitis or “Jumper’s Knee”, patellar tracking disorder and patellar pain syndrome or “Runner’s Knee”. Check with your doctor or sports medicine specialist to determine your condition and if the Breg FreeRunner is the brace for your condition.
