Knee caps are designed to protect the knee from future injury or risk of damage. Knee caps add a valuable compression element that enhances blood flow and reduces knee joint pain. The main reason this compression aspect is so important is that a compressed knee stimulates blood flow through blood vessels of the knee. Knee sleeves are made from neoprene material and slide on over the knee. In simple terms, the idea behind the knee sleeve is to reduce joint pain in the knee. More specifically, the cap adds warmth, limits patella movement, and can enhance proprioception (capacity to feel the position of joint in space as sensed by the central nervous system). Knee caps for knee pain are more than mechanical support mechanism for the joint but are also used to improve proprioception.
A hinged knee cap is a device used to support the knee joint and surrounding tissues while maintainingflexibility. This type of cap comes in many different designs from a large number of manufacturers. Tynor Knee Cap With Rigid Hinge usually consists of some type of wrap that wraps around the leg at the knee, with a hole over the kneecap and hinges on either side of the knee joint. The knee cap pushes the knee back into normal alignment and puts more of the force to the outside compartment and less on the damaged inside compartment. Therefore, the knee feels better.

Tynor Knee Immobilizer 14
Knee Immobilizer is designed to stabilize the knee in full extension. The rigid posterior splint comfortably stabilizes the knee with cushioned straps, and is shaped to provide a space behind the knee, even at full extension. Because of its stability, lightweight design, and non-slip comfort, the Knee Immobilizer is ideal for post-op stabilization. Knee Immobilizer can be used simultaneously with the Knee Cryo/Cuff for the added benefits of cold and compression. The two middle straps of the Knee Immobilizer secure the Knee Cryo/Cuff in its proper position, permitting
loose attachment of the cuff straps. With this arrangement, compression from the Knee Cryo/Cuff is confined to the anterior aspect of the knee, and the posterior is free from constriction.
