Frequently Asked Questions

You will find the answers to some frequently asked questions regarding braces. If you have an unanswered question, please send us an email and we will promptly respond to you.

Why should one wear a brace and what activities could one engage in once a brace is worn

A brace is a medical solution that could help to prevent injuries (such as sprains, strains and other instabilities), to strengthen muscles and to sooth soreness. It may be used to support a number of joints, including those located in the ankle, knee, lower back, elbow and wrist.

When correctly fitted, a brace may minimize the dangers of physical overexertion while simultaneously allowing for the freedom of movement required for daily activities or for a particular sport.

What is the difference between a brace and an elastic bandage?

While an elastic bandage may be more flexible and also protects the skin, a brace provides more support and offers the required ergonomic support for the user.

What is the shelf life of a brace?

Even if a brace is washable, over time, it will eventually wear out. The duration of the brace will depend on factors such as the frequency of use, how much the user sweats, and the maintenance of the product. Care and instructions are provided with each product and every brace’s shelf life will vary.

If I am not an athletic person, how are these braces still applicable to me?

Support can be used in order to help you in your daily activities. For example, tennis elbow is a common complaint among office employees for which a brace may provide some relief.  In addition, daily housekeeping chores such as vacuuming may cause strains on your body that certain braces may help to alleviate.
