A knee brace short, also known as a knee sleeve, is a compressive knee support that is worn over the knee joint. It is typically made of a stretchable material such as neoprene or nylon, and it is designed to provide mild support and compression to the knee joint. Knee brace shorts are commonly used by athletes and individuals who engage in physical activities to help prevent knee injuries and alleviate pain associated with knee conditions such as arthritis and tendonitis. They are also used during rehabilitation to help improve knee function and promote healing. Knee brace shorts come in various sizes and can be worn on either knee.
