Hely & Weber just released the new Shields II brace. The original Shields brace was the industry standard for over ten years in treating patella tracking issues. The upgrades to this knee brace are impressive. This new version is lighter, lower-profile, and more comfortable.
The back of the brace is made from a sueded lycra fabric which is more comfortable than neoprene, and the brace is also 3 inches shorter which makes it lower-profile. Hinges offer protection and stability.
The Shields II brace is designed to mimic the taping protocols of an athletic trainer. The Trakaderm buttress captures the knee cap and gently positions it. This patella stabilizer, or patella tracking knee brace, is the best option for high school and college sports. The brace is easy to apply, easy to adjust during a game, and the hinges are completely covered.
