Prophylactic Knee Braces
Prophylactic braces are used primarily by athletes participating in contact sports. Evidence about prophylactic knee braces ( the type football lineman wear) are often rigid with a knee hinge, which indicates the bracing could be ineffective in reducing anterior cruciate ligament tears, but may be helpful in resisting medial and lateral collateral ligament tears.
Functional braces are designed for use by people who have already experienced a knee injury and need support to recover. Functional braces help people who are suffering from pain associated with arthritis. Functional braces are intended to reduce the rotation of the knee and support stability. This type of bracing reduces hyperextension, and increases the agility and strength of the knee. Most forms of functional braces are made of elastic. Known to be the least expensive of all braces, functional braces are easily found in a variety of sizes.
Rehabilitation braces are used to limit the movement of the knee in both medial and lateral directions. Typically, rehabilitation braces often have an adjustable range of motion stop potential for limiting flexion and extension following ACL reconstruction.
Rehabilitation braces are primarily used after injury or surgery to immobilize the leg. Due to their function, rehabilitation braces are larger in size than other types of braces.
