Push Sports Hinged Knee brace £69.99
The Push Sports Knee Brace supports the knee in a special way, using non-axial leaf spring hinges on both sides of the knee. Movement to the sides is countered, whilst on the other hand bending and stretching of the knee are not hindered. The U-shaped pressure pad is positioned round the kneecap and contributes to stabilising the kneecap.

Firstly Vivomed are excellent, the item arrived next day, will definitely buy from here again!
The Push Sports knee brace is good, but the sizing is all wrong. I need the XL size despite my measurements being M. The M and L I could not even get on.
It could do with more shaping, to accommodate a female thigh, as it digs in at the top and is a little scratchy.
Thus said it is better than most of the other braces I have tried, it allows for movement and does not slip down.

An abdominal strain occurs when the rectus abdominus is torn or ruptured. The abdominal muscles allow movement, assist with breathing, and provide support to the spine. They consist of the internal and external obliques, rectus abdominus, and the transversus abdominus. The transversus abdominus muscle is triangular and flat, and the rectus abdominus is long and flat. If the abdominal muscles become weak or tight, they can cause poor posture and back pain.
There are three types of abdominal muscle strain; grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3.
A grade 1 strain occurs when a few muscle fibres are torn;
a grade 2 strain occurs when the tears to the muscle fibres are more extensive;
and a grade 3 strain occurs when there is a complete rupture of the muscle
Any sport which involves a fast movement or sudden change in direction can cause abdominal muscle strain. Gymnasts, weight lifters, rowers, throwers are particularly susceptible to abdominal strain.
