BOSTON, December 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Kathi FairbendMS, RPT – one of the nation’s leading physical therapists – has partnered with a John Hopkins qualified doctor and invented a unique device that could bring dramatic relief to millions of people suffering from knee, elbow and heel pain. It’s called a ball jointMT Therapeutic Compression Wrap (www.thekneecap.com), and it looks like a baseball cap, but is made of stretchy neoprene and contains a reusable cold pack. This means it is able to compress, cool and comfort knees, elbows or heels while allowing people to stay mobile.
“Over the years, many patients have had to tie or glue a baseball cap and an ice pack in an attempt to reduce pain and inflammation in the knees, elbows and heels. Nothing else really seemed surround the affected joints. So I thought, why not make a device that looks like a baseball cap, but is made of stretchy neoprene, is adjustable with velcroMT tabs, soft stretch straps and contains a reusable cold gel pack? My friend who trained as a doctor in John Hopkins said: ‘Let’s do it!’ So we did. And, now, after two years of development, it is finally available online at TheKneeCap.com.” (www.thekneecap.com)
ball jointMT Therapeutic compression wraps are patent pending. Its edge is made of a special material chosen to conform to a person’s anatomy, while being rigid enough to comfort nerves, muscles and tendons upper or lower the painful joint. ball jointMT Therapy Wraps can be worn with the brim pointed towards the ceiling or the floor, depending on where targeted relief is needed.
“Different conditions will respond best to targeted compression above or below the joint,” Kathi Fairbend, MS, RPT says. “Osteoarthritis is a different condition than gout, bursitis or Osgood-Schlatter disease. The problem is that traditional knee and elbow braces don’t allow people to decide which area, say the shin or the thigh, target with more and adjustable compression. And most devices that “freeze” the joints limit mobility when using them.MT Therapeutic wraps allow people to walk or drive while wearing them. No more sitting down to ‘freeze’.”
Kathi FairbendMS, RPT sees Ball jointMT Therapeutic Wraps as one of the highlights of its decades at the forefront of physical therapy, treating many professional athletes, corporate CEOs, physicians and thousands of others across the country. “For many years, I have wished that someone, somewhere would come up with a device that could surround aching, sore, inflamed joints and cool, compress, and comfort them all at once, while compressing the areas above or below them.. That’s why I decided to invent it myself!”
