What is the Mueller Hg80 Premium Hinged Knee Brace?
The new Hg80 Premium Hinged Knee Brace is the next generation in the ever popular Mueller Hg80 line. Mueller have focused on improving comfort and functionality of this product, allowing the user to feel greatly supported, whilst still being allowed to continue their day to day activities without restriction. The Hg80 Premium Hinged Knee brace uses an exclusive HydraCinn® fabric which is moisture wicking and antimicrobial to ensure comfort and longevity, which is also neoprene free.
The Hg80 Premium Hinged Knee Brace is designed to be very low profile, without may straps around the brace. The top of the Hg80 Premium Hinged Knee brace features a wraparound style of securing strap, allowing the customer to stretch it around, and secure it on the side of the brace, at the top of the hinges, providing security and prevents the brace from slipping down.
When can I use the Mueller Hg80 Premium Hinged Knee Brace?
The Hg80 Premium Hinged Knee brace sits in the category of high-ultimate level of supports. The Triaxial hinge allows the wearer a huge level of support against any unnatural movement in the knee, but also means the knee is not restricted in the natural movement it should have, due to the three points of pivot within the hinge.

Due to the high level of this brace, it caters towards the more serious category of injuries, mainly ligament damage. Those who suffer with tears, or full ruptures of the ACL, PCL, MCL or LCL, would benefit from the Hg80 Premium Knee Brace as the strong metal hinges prevent the knee from hyper-extending, bowing laterally and medially, or twisting, which are the three most common problems with a ligament injury.
The Hg80 Premium Knee Brace also has a very comfortable gel buttress around the knee cap. This can aid against weakness with the patella, such as tendonitis, or patella bursitis. It also keeps the patella in place, so if yours has dislocated or can freely move, this brace will prevent this.
