Introducing OPROtec

Building upon our expertise in designing and engineering leading sports protection, we launched OPROtec to offer a premium range of sports supports and braces to protect athletes from injury, assist with their recovery and relieve pain.

The range combines therapeutic and warming effects of neoprene with the compressive qualities of seamless knitted technology. Silicone grip on the inside of the supports ensures they stay firmly in place and don’t slip whilst being worn. Essential for comfort.

OPROtec sports supports are designed to be long lasting and for added peace of mind, we protect you by offering a lifetime warranty.
