Functionality of Braces and Straps

However, their distinctive feature lies in permitting a degree of freedom, enabling individuals to perform routine tasks. Beyond mere support, braces offer enhanced stability and strength, expediting a return to regular activities.

Types of Braces and Straps:

Hinged braces

For robust joint support, hinged braces stand out as a superior choice, primarily employed for joints such as the knee or elbow. The ingenious hinged design imparts a crucial balance, offering the necessary rigidity to bolster the joint while simultaneously permitting fluid movement. These braces find utility in scenarios involving severe injuries and conditions where unchecked movement might exacerbate the existing damage. Notably, hinged knee braces prove beneficial in addressing issues like ligament injuries, meniscus injuries, sprains, and osteoarthritis.

Lower back braces

Lumbar braces offer valuable back support by alleviating pressure from your spine, acting as a preventive measure against strains. Particularly beneficial for professions requiring repetitive lifting or engaging in sports that entail frequent back twisting, these braces are also instrumental in managing injuries such as torn back ligaments. The brace effectively maintains the proper position of the lumbar spine, delivering the essential support and compression needed for a well-supported and protected back.


Commonly known as bands, these straps play a crucial role in alleviating stress from specific areas by applying gentle pressure. For instance, knee straps are designed to exert pressure on the front of the knee, effectively reducing stress on problematic tendons. This proactive measure aids in preventing conditions like “jumper’s knee,” frequently observed in athletes engaged in sports requiring extensive running and jumping. The strategic use of these pressure-relieving straps offers targeted support, fostering injury prevention and overall joint well-being.
