Why use braces and supports?

As joints are often prone to injuries, are weak or cope with heavy loads, it is possible to avoid or relieve joint pain by using braces and supports for protection, support and stabilization without the risk of side effects.

The Hansaplast products offer various degrees of compression and stabilization which …

  • provide reliable joint support and protection 
  • help to prevent injuries from occurring
  • help to reduce oedema and swelling in the affected area
  • alleviate tissue tightness

How do they help?

The Hansaplast braces and supports provide compression and stabilization for the joint and the underlying soft tissue, reducing swelling and relieving the pain. The fabric provides warmth to the tissue, enhancing its blood circulation and increasing its oxygen supply. The continuous, gentle pressure stimulates receptors and nerves in the skin and muscles. These send impulses to the brain which coordinate the movement of muscles and joints, preventing painful movements without restricting mobility.
Always see a doctor if the wound is deep, bleeds heavily or shows signs of infection like reddening, swelling or warmth.
