ZAMST RK-1
Runner’s Knee is the 2nd most common running injury and is reported to be as high as 16.9%, affecting a wide range of runners.  
 
Zamst understood the need to create an innovative product that addresses this issue. 
 
The RK-1’s proprietary fabric, patented design with dual layer pad and spiral strap prevents the shin bone from rotating inward, which causes the IT Band to compress against the side of the knee.  This maintains and provides proper positioning and corrects the lower leg alignment to reduce the stress on the IT Band.  The semi-rigid stays on either side of the RK-1 increases proprioception, stability and keeps the knee in alignment.  The anatomically correct butterfly shape at the back of the knee provides complete range of motion and enhanced comfort over extended distances.   
 
The RK-1 is the only product of its kind that provides immediate relief of IT Band Syndrome.
