Titanium is one of the strongest yet lightest of metals, used in everything from jet engines to spacecraft. It’s the cutting edge solution to so many industrial conundrums – and now it’s going to help your dodgy knee.
Its immense strength can keep you up and running (and kicking and cycling and golfing) yet there’s more to it than that.
Titanium is used for surgical implants as it is hypoallergenic, but recent studies have shown that wearing titanium can itself relieve pain. Braces worn near an injury or other discomfort have had such a positive effect that athletes – both professional and recreational – have been discarding constricting, heavy-duty braces for lightweight, flexible ones.
Knee injuries are a growing problem as we become more active, pounding the footpaths while jogging, twisting and turning as we try to emulate Murray and Konta on the tennis courts and otherwise working out in the gym. Football is also a culprit with more and more of us continuing to play past our prime, often on the unforgiving surface of artificial five-a-side pitches and, equally often, in the evening when we’re tired after a hard day’s work.
Changes in our sporting habits have meant changes in medical equipment to keep up with them. The most innovative piece of gear is the Max Knee Support which uses neoprene – the rubberlike fabric used in wetsuits and other protective clothing – infused with titanium. The neoprene keeps the joint and surrounding muscles warm and comfortable while the titanium offers strength and support.
The Max has a removable cover for the patella – the knee itself – allowing ease of movement while you are active yet still supporting the area around it. The result is swift pain relief combined with impressive recovery from injury. It’s easy to fit with a simple Velcro fastening and the adjustable strap lets you increase and reduce support as needed, particularly important if the knee is swollen. It’s ideal for use both when training or playing sport and for everyday wear to help recovery after injury. Not only is the Max lightweight it is also compact so it can be worn under a tracksuit while you play just about any sport, or street clothes as it is perfect for reducing pain from everyday life.
If you’re living life to the max, the Max Knee Support lets you walk tall no matter how strenuous your workouts…
