How to wear:

1. Position the u-shaped buttress internally around the patella hole, depending on the tracking problem.
2. Apply the product so that the knee patella hole is sitting comfortably over the patella in the mid-section of the 3-piece knee.
3. Lock in buttress with the top and bottom straps.

  • For thermal treatment to be truly effective, the heat needs to be generated continuously for long periods
  • Do not wear Thermoskin thermal knee supports within 72 hours post-injury
  • Wear directly against the skin. Do not use heat creams inside the brace

Patella tracking instability

The patella is held in place at the front of the knee joint by tendons on the top and bottom and by ligaments on the sides of the patella. In addition, there is a layer of cartilage underneath the patella which assists it in gliding smoothly. Patella tracking instability refers to a condition that causes the patella to move towards the inside of the leg or outside of the leg as the leg bends and straightens. Symptoms include discomfort/pain in the area when performing any activity which requires the leg to bend or straighten. It may also manifest itself as a 'giving way'/loosening sensation in the knee.

We recommend seeing your doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms for a complete diagnosis and treatment plan.

Thermoskin's Trioxon® Advantage

Thermoskin Thermal supports feature exclusive Trioxon Advantage technology, for the enhanced recovery of sports injuries, arthritis and RSI.

Thermoskin Thermal supports have been carefully designed so that they can be worn continuously for long periods and during a range of activities including sleeping, in order to deliver the highest benefits of thermal therapy.

Benefits of Trioxon Advantage:

  • Promotes increased blood flow which facilitates enhanced recovery from injury.
  • Provides light but firm compression to counteract tissue swelling.
  • Clinically tested to increase skin and muscle temperature to help prevent, treat and rehabilitate soft tissue injuries.
  • Provides temporary relief from pain/soreness associated with sports injuries, arthritis and RSI.
  • Increases elasticity and reactivity of the muscle, allowing for greater range of movement.
  • Wearing this support sends unconscious alerts to the brain, reminding the body to self correct its alignment and posture.
  • Assists in providing insulation whilst wicking away moisture. This helps the skin to remain oxygenated and comfortable for extended periods of time.
  • Thermoskin Trioxon Advantage
    When to use:
    1. Prevention: Thermoskin may be worn prior, during or after activities to help prevent soft tissue injuries
    2. Treatment: Thermoskin can be a valuable complement to present methods of treatment. Worn almost anywhere and anytime, it works continuously to help overcome injury post 72 hours.
    3. Rehabilitation: Thermoskin is an important adjunct in helping rehabilitate injuries as it allows soft tissue to become fully extensible and more responsive to therapy and exercise following surgery, lay-off or overuse injury.

  • Wear the support directly against the skin, do not use heat creams under the thermal support.
  • Use the thermal support after the initial trauma subsides. First action calls for rest, ice, compression.
  • Only use the thermal 72 hours after initial trauma subsides to provide on-going compression & heat treatment. The fit should be firm but not tight.
  • Do not wear supports whilst showering.

  • Care instructions:
