Vulkan Classic – the professional’s choice since 1977
Vulkan Classic Supports have been developed with two of the world’s leading professors in sports and orthopaedic medicine, based on sound biomechanical principles – the Vulkan is still the only medically proven range of supports on the market.
If you suffer from knee pain, whether through osteoarthritis or injury, you’ll know just how disruptive it can be to your day-to-day activity. The Vulkan Classic Knee Support provides you with the compression you need to feel supported and features a stitched buttress which provides extra support to the patella (knee cap).
The Vulkan Classic Knee Support is also perfect for injury rehabilitation, whether a strain, sprain or damage to tendons or ligaments. The compression it delivers along with its heat retaining properties are perfect for minimising swelling and promoting circulation thus speeding the natural healing process.
How it works
The unique construction of the Aerotherm ‘Circulation Concept’ together with superior Neoprene makes the Vulkan Classic the most effective and durable ankle support available. It draws sweat away from the injured area, and allows the skin to breath to prevent irritation, soreness and odour, which means it can be worn during exercise or over long periods with minimal effect on the skin.
This support is suitable for injury recovery as it dramatically speeds up the natural healing process by keeping the injured joint at a higher temperature to encourage good blood circulation which helps new cell growth.
It is also extremeley effective in helping to prevent injuries. It helps working muscles to retain natural body heat, significantly reducing your risk of sprains and strains which account for almost two thirds of all injuries.
The Vulkan Classic Knee Support can be worn to protect or heal the left or right knee. Take the measurement from across your knee cap for the perfect fit;
Small – 11.8 to 13.7 inch (30 to 35 cm)
Medium – 13.7 to 15.7 inch (35 to 40 cm)
Large – 15.7 to 17.7 inch (40 to 45 cm)
Extra Large – 17.7 to 19.7 (45 to 58 cm)
