Functional Ski Knee Brace
FUNCTIONAL SKI KNEE BRACE
Injuries to the knee joint account for around one third of all skiing injuries. Due to the fact of twisting of the knee, the Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) of the knee has always been the most common knee injury. Also, the amount of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries is rising year by year. The picture below shows how often knee injuries occur:
Why the contusions of knee joints are the most common during winter activities? Because of ski and snowboard boots and bindings that have helped reduce ankle and shin injuries appear to have contributed to the increase in ACL injuries.
These boots and bindings protect ankle joint perfectly, but their release mechanisms are not fast enough to protect the knee from a sudden twisting injury.
