Doing gymnastics for 13 years killed my knees. Six operations later, and I still rely on my knee braces daily. I love that Bright Medical offers a discreet, hinged knee support that will still allow me to be active while wearing it.

By recognizing the importance of orthopedic supplies designed to maintain joint safety, such as back support products, Bright Medical hopes to aid people with a variety of orthopedic conditions. However, the company urges customers to consult a doctor before using any orthopedic supplies.
Athletes, elderly patients, candidates for joint operations and patients recovering from joint operations can benefit from extra support provided by braces, splints and other orthopedic supplies. Fortunately, due to Bright Medical’s unique business formula, the top brands of orthopedic supports and other medical supplies are offered at steeply discounted prices via BrightMedical.com
Back supports are one of the most popular types of support products. Many back supports are designed to provide various levels of increased compression and support. Some lower back supports not only provide additional support for the back, but for the abdominal area as well. Such back support products are often designed to be worn and concealed underneath clothing.
Laborers are often encouraged to wear some type of back support to offer increased stability and strength while at work. “When I wear a lower back support while working, especially when a job requires using heavy machinery or moving heavy items, I can definitely tell a difference in my pain level at the end of the day. It also helps to ensure that back pain does not slow me down during the day, which is the last thing any professional wants,” said Tom Hood, Jr., a skilled carpenter and flooring specialist.
Back supports are not only used by laborers, but can be used by any person with a back condition or back pain. Back and shoulder supports can be helpful with daily chores like washing dishes or holding young children. “I have two children under the age of three. I am constantly holding both of them while I multitask throughout the day. A back support, or any type of support, would be a great investment,” said supermom Ashley McGrath.
Athletes are notorious for sustaining various joint injuries. Bright Medical recommends utilizing products such as ankle, wrist, or knee supports during activity to prevent injury and support joints. Many ankle supports are designed to be used as preventative measures for athletes. These ankle supports are ideal for weak or injured ankles. Modern wrist supports, frequently worn by gymnasts and baseball players, are often lined with foam material for optimum comfort and breathability. Like most orthopedic support supplies, wrist supports are created to be adjustable for desired levels of compression.
Knee supports are another common type of orthopedic supply. The state-of-the-art knee supports on BrightMedical.com have a variety of features beyond the basic patella stabilization, round buttress, and uniform compression. Modern knee supports offer a higher level of stability, better control the patella, and reduce the irritation commonly caused by conventional seaming methods utilized in other types of knee supports.
“Doing gymnastics for 13 years killed my knees. Six operations later, and I still rely on my knee braces daily. I love that Bright Medical offers a discreet, hinged knee support that will still allow me to be active while wearing it. It also provides just the right amount of control of my patella,” remarked a former gymnast, age 26, who wished to remain anonymous.
A commonly overlooked orthopedic supply is the splint. When people hear the term “splint,” they usually assume it is for a finger or thumb. While Bright Medical does offer a number of splints for fingers and thumbs, the medical supply company features other types of splints and supports, including a finger splint, wrist supports, and an ankle supports.
Back supports, knee supports, arm slings and many other supports can help decrease everyday stress on joints by providing extra support and stabilization. A simple support, whether it be a back support, knee support, or splint, can make a tremendous difference in basic joint care.
