Top Knee Supports for Skiing and Snow

Ski season is upon us and it’s always a busy time of year for Neo G. The biggest demand between January and April is for knee supports; especially those that have additional features such as stays and additional compression.

According to online reports, knee injuries make up to 55-67% [1] of all snow sport injuries, so it’s no surprise that knee supports are in high demand at the start of the season. If you have a trip to the slopes planned with an unfortunate knee problem, be sure to discuss with your doctor our bestselling knee supports for skiing and snow:

 

Airflow Knee Support

Our Airflow Knee Support is slimline and lightweight, making it perfect for wearing underneath clothes without too much hassle. The Multi Zone Compression provides a snug and flexible fit helping to warm muscles whilst providing mild support to the knee.

 

Active Knee Support

Built for comfort, flexibility and ease of movement, Active knee supports help strains, sprains and instability during skiing and other snow activities. Multi-Zone Compression (MZC) provides targeted mild to moderate support for a snug yet flexible fit. Constructed from a specialist breathable fabric, they helps control moisture during intense activities, such as skiing.

 

Airflow Plus Knee Support

Our Airflow Plus stabilized knee support with silicone patella cushion combines lightweight breathability with the reassuring stabilization of moderate to firm support. Multi-Zone Compression (MZC) is provided by this seamless knit fabric pull-on sleeves support that also features a silicone patella cushion for added protection. The Airflow Plus Stabilized Knee Support support is ideal for skiing and rehabilitation from injury, whilst also helping reduce the likelihood of re-injury.

 

VCS Open Knee Support

One of our bestselling supports worldwide and recently awarded a "Highly Commended at the 2021 Pharmacy Most Valuable Products awards, the VCS Open Knee Support helps provide added support and stability. With an open patella design with stitched buttress and constructed from heat therapeutic neoprene, it's best suited to help with arthritis and stiffness from injury.

 

 

VCS Stabilised Open Knee Support

A top selling knee support, year on year: the VCS Stabilised Open Knee Support has all the benefits of the 885 (above), but with the added feature of additional stays that give an extra bit of bounce. The interchangeable metal spiral stays on either side of the brace help provide flexible support, alongside the open patella design and stitched buttress that help give reinforced support. 

 

Adjusta Fit Hinged Open Knee Support

If things have gone horribly wrong and you’ve taken a tumble on the slopes you might be in need of something to immobilize and limit movement once you get home. The 898 Adjusta Fit Hinged Open Knee has adjustable dials to help control flexion and extension movements for a prescribed range of motion, helping to limit movement during recovery.

This Wrist and Thumb Support helps strains, sprains and instability of the wrist and thumb and is breathable, ideal for use during skiing when you just need some mild support.

 

Active Wrist Support

Offering mild to moderate support via Multi-Zone Compression, the Active Wrist Support, like the Active knee, is built for comfort, flexibility and ease of movement and helps strains, sprains and instability during skiing and other snow activities.

 

VCS Wrist Band

Our Variable Compression System Wrist Band can be used to apply adjustable mild to moderate compression around the wrist specific to wherever you need it most. Made of durable, heat therapeutic neoprene this support can be used to to help reduce excessive movements at the wrist, particularly whilst skiing.

 

VCS Wrist Support

The Variable Compression System Wrist Support differs to the wrist band in that in provides a moderate support level. It can also help to manage pain caused by joint or tendon overuse in the wrist or thumb.

 

Kinesiology Tape

An alternative to a support either for your knee or wrist may be to use NeoTape Kinesiology Tape. It is constructed from a soft, breathable, lightweight hypoallergenic material for comfort during activity and also comes with a visual tension guide, which helps ensure correct tension is applied for the best results.

Whilst a good support or brace can help protect or prevent injuries on the slopes its still a good idea to discuss with your doctor or physiotherapist before utilizing one to make sure it meets your requirements
