Flow / Knee Braces


Flow is a functional knee brace that provides hot/cold therapy. It allows football players to reinforce their performances during the game. The knee brace combines a solid structure with flexible sleeve to provide best fitting on a player's knee. There are several tubes hidden on the back part of the brace that will allow water running through to treat the back of muscle parts. The brace itself is integrated with a thermoelectric peltier to provide hot therapy. A pump tank is designed separately to provide cold therapy. Simply connect the pump tank with the knee braces and the pump will run cold water through the tubes.
