Gardner, KS (September 13, 2012) — Active Innovations, the medical division of Active Ankle Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Cramer Products, Inc., is pleased to introduce the Targeted Breathable Support (TBS) line of elbow and knee supports. These unique supports are crafted with VentiPrene, a durable, lightweight, 1/8”-thick perforated neoprene. The material differs from standard neoprene in that it allows the skin to breathe while providing compression and warmth without overheating.

The elbow and knee supports both feature a four-way-stretch quilted lining, which allows for additional airflow and moisture control. Contoured silicone massagers in each product are placed strategically to prevent migration of the support and gently massage soft tissues. The elbow support includes a compression adjustment strap for better fit and control of compression on the forearm. Usage is ideal for treatment of elbow sprains, strains, edema from bursitis, and tendonitis. This support is also effective in the treatment and prevention of tennis and golfer’s elbow.

The knee and cartilage support features an open patella design. This provides pressure-free movement of the knee. A padded horseshoe insert surrounds the patella for additional support along with edema and migration control. The strategically placed contoured silicone massagers provide compression along the medial and lateral joint lines in providing relief and support for cartilage injuries. Usage is ideal for treatment of knee sprains, strains, instability, and edema from injury or other post-operative symptoms.

“We believe this unique product will provide superior compression and support allowing the user to continue the activities they enjoy” said Kelly Bauer, Active Innovations Director of Sales. “They will be able to wear the TBS longer and more comfortably because of its unique VentiPrene material.”

Additional highlights of Active Innovations’ Targeted Breathable Supports line includes:

  • New combination of soft, durable laminates
  • Perforated neoprene for “breathability you can see”
  • Mild compression and added proprioception increase joint stability and decrease pain and swelling to keep the user active
  • TBS Elbow Support available in small, medium, large and X-large sizes easily measured by forearm circumference.
  • TBS Knee and Cartilage Support available in small, medium, large, X-large, and XX-large sizes easily measured by mid-patella circumference.
