"The Advanced Ultimate Compression range combines graduated compression with total adjustability. The best of both worlds! The Advanced Ultimate Compression Knee Support provides a higher level of support above that of the UP5150 Knee Sleeve already in the range. This advanced model offers level 3 support and utilises the seamless circular knit that our Compression Supports are so well known for. The higher support level stems from the addition of steel springs on either side of the knee for increased stability and the fully adjustable cross-over strapping system for extra support around the knee cap. Recommended use: to help relieve the symptoms of arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis. Our Ultimate Compression products are thinner than neoprene and provide a high level of support without the bulk or heat generation of neoprene and latex."
