What if your knee brace could not only comfort you during your workout, but also after? That’s the problem solved by a recent Red Dot Design Award winner. Designers at Ming Chuan University the Energy Storage Heating Knee Pad stores kinetic energy creating during your work out using an electro-thermal yarn. This means that wearing the knee brace during your workout will provide stability to a weak joint, and then after the workout, that same brace can act as a heating pad, providing quick relief for stiff body parts.
