This Bunga Patellar Sustainer Knee Brace is made of Bunga Cool Tech material. There is a patellar opening for brace positioning and comfort. The brace also incorporates a universal patellar felt buttress. The brace includes 2" upper and lower circumferential Velcro™ brand Velcro™ straps for support. The multi-position hinges are covered to protect the hinges. The brace comes with "boot-pulls" at the top of the brace which help the user pull on the brace. If you are looking for more patellar stabilization and more support consider the Bunga Knee Brace with Patellar Control [AKS14]. This brace has built-in patellar support straps above and below the knee and an additional option for greater stability called a criss-cross fan patellar control system. [AKS14F]. These last two braces are not available in Bunga Cool Tech, only in latex-free neoprene.
Bunga Cool Tech material for those who have to wear their supports for a long period of time, or that have heat or allergy issues with neoprene. If you want to use latex-free neoprene rather than Bunga Cool Tech see product AKS15

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.
