Undersleeve

A neoprene undersleeve is helpful for anyone wearing a knee brace for osteoarthritis or a functional knee brace.

A neoprene undersleeve will help keep a knee brace from rotating or migrating on the leg.  It can also make a knee brace more comfortable to wear by providing some cushion between the hard shells of the knee brace and the soft tissue on the thigh or calf.

A neoprene undersleeve should be perforated (have little holes in it).  The little holes allow air to cool and dry the skin as well as make the neoprene breathable.  The perforations make the sleeve more comfortable to wear.

An undersleeve will also protect the liners of your knee brace from sweat, dirt, and grime.  This will make your knee brace last longer and make it more hygienic for extended use.

Purchase a neoprene undersleeve.
