The Bunga Knee Brace with Patellar Control™ is made of 3/16” latex-free neoprene with nylon on both sides. There is a patella opening for brace positioning and comfort. The brace also incorporates a universal felt buttress. The brace includes upper and lower circumferential Velcro™ straps for support and additional straps above and below near the patella for yet more support. The multi-position hinges are covered and "boot-pulls" are included to help pull on the brace. This brace has an additional option for greater stability. This brace incorporates the features of the Victory Knee Brace (AKS15) along with an additional set of straps above and below the knee for more patella support.

Sizing and Fitting
For proper size, measure around the center of the knee with leg extended.
This is a heavy duty and thicker version of our standard 1/8" neoprene. It increases the support and warmth of the brace compared to the 1/8" version.
Bunga Velvet Plush Fabric is a soft, yet durable neoprene with an extra soft covering.
This brace is available in KoolFlex Material. This is a light, cool and comfortable alternative to neoprene. It is constructed of a ply-nylon core body with a poly-spandex blend outer cover. This cover and construction enhances air flow. The open cell structure allows air to pass easily through the material, thus keeping the brace cooler. The knitting structure allows perspiration to be wicked from the side next to the body to the outside layer of the fabric where the perspiration can be evaporated. The KoolFlex line of products are finished using elastic bias tape around the edges, which prevents the material from fraying. KoolFlex is not a replacement for neoprene. Neoprene will give more compression and warmth because of its cell structure. KoolFlex is a great alternative for those people who have to wear supports for long periods of time, or that have heat or allergy issues with neoprene.
