Runner's knee is one of the most common injuries for endurance athletes today. Through extensive research and development, Rehband has created the UD Runner's knee/ITBS Tights, a unique pair of tights that provide injury prevention and rehabilitation. This product is the first of its kind, designed to help prevent the development of runner’s knee, with a medical classification to back it up.
The tights are made of recycled high-class polyamide and perforated neoprene panels that extend over the hip and knee joints. The neoprene panels provide targeted warmth and compression to the areas associated with runner’s knee. This results in pain relief and prevention against recurring injuries. The tights can also improve the everyday athlete’s performance and coordination through proprioception properties, and the user will also experience the overall benefits of graded compression, increased blood circulation, coordination, and reduced swelling.
Apart from their medical function and slim look, the Runner’s Knee/ITBS Tights include features such as flat-lock stitching, a breathable stretch material for perfect comfort, and reflective elements. The reflectors are designed in the same shape as the perforated holes for a complete visual balance in both light and dark. An ideal tight for marathons, long runs, training, and any athlete conscious of injury prevention.
