Knee Compression Support
- About Bearhug
The comfort of the support around the knee joint is provided by the round structure of the bamboo fibres which are non-irritating and don't crease when worn. The product helps to support and protect the joint and surrounding soft tissue during activity and exercise.
In 2014 Bearhug's co-founder was battling with a long-standing ankle injury that was threatening to put an end to his competitive rugby playing days. Not one to lie down and accept defeat this kicked off a worldwide search until he found a support that could get him back out there. Fast forward two years, the pack was formed and Bearhug was born.
The unique composition and intricate weaving techniques used in the production of the knee support help apply a comfortable yet critical level of compression. The yarn also has a cross section filled with micro gaps which allows the fabric to breath and eliminate sweat build up during exercise use like running, all while continuing to provide you support while being worn.

How does the Knee Support work? Get the most out of the products
Bearhug use bamboo charcoal in a unique composition within their knee support. Bamboo charcoal supports have been scientifically proven to increase blood flow through the joint compared to ordinary supports.
This increased blood flow drives oxygenated blood to the knee joint flushing out any toxins in the knee and leg which helps your muscle, ligaments, tendons and soft tissue repair quicker while providing pain relief and reducing inflammation and swelling from sports like running.
