Back on Track Knee Brace
Knee pain may be caused by inflammation. For example, if you have arthritis of the knee, then the pain is often caused by inflammation to the surrounding knee capsule; the damaged cartilage itself does not have any nerve supply. The only way to regenerate knee cartilage is by exercise, which is facilitated if the inflammation and pain subside.
The basic knee brace is very convenient and easy to wear. This model is appreciated by older people and is perfect for wearing during the night or under slim fitting trousers, for example jodhpurs. The brace is held in place by an elasticised ring fitted into the upper edge. The elasticised ring doesn’t take to being stretched. When you put on the brace over your knee, please avoid pulling up the brace by the ring. Rather you should pull up the knee brace by grasping the lower end of the brace.

The company Back on Track manufactures joint and muscle protection, which are manufactured from a “ceramic textile” which is sold under the registered brand name Back on Track.
The textile is made up of fibres of polyester and polypropylene (some of the products are mixed with cotton fibres) with a ceramic powder fused into the fibres. The ceramic gives the fabric its unique property, which reflects body heat in the form of infrared heat radiation.
How does Back on Track work?
It is well established and documented that long wave infrared heat radiation increases the blood circulation. The increased blood circulation in the tissues helps to relieve muscles tension and improves performance. One important property is the injury prevention effect, which you get when the protections are used for training and competition.
Heat energy can be transported in three ways: conduction (transfer), convection or radiation.
- When heat transfer or conduction occurs, the heat in a material spreads from one part of the material to another.
- Convection is the loss of heat when a heated liquid or gas (e.g. air) is displaced, carrying the heat with it. The insulating material in ordinary clothing and joint supports, for example cotton, wool and neoprene, is designed to prevent convection and thus retains body heat in the air outside the skin.
- Radiation occurs when a heat source emits heat radiation, where upon it collides with another surface and heats it. Back on Track’s products work with radiant heat, the purpose of which is to avoid trapping the heat through insulation. This is so that the protection has a respiratory function, while heat energy in the body tissues increases.
