Wearing a brace for 18 months is no easy feat.
To make the most of her bracing experience, Indira Velasquez chose to customize the color of her Bledsoe™ Z-12 brace. Not only did her brace provide comfort to her osteoarthritic knee, but it also became a fashion staple as part of her everyday wear.
“Pink and green became my favorite colors for new clothing,” said Indira. “I could have worn the brace under long pants, but I liked to show it off.” Strangers were eager to stop Indira to comment on what a colorful brace she was sporting. Indira’s Z-12 proved to be not only fashionable but functional as well.
“I am very active and wore the brace to cut the lawn, shovel snow, and clear my yard of leaves. I went to the local gym two to three times per week and attended spin class, weight lifting, kickboxing, kettlebells, and some aerobics classes. It was tough on my knee, but I knew I had to keep my body strong. The brace was very, very helpful.”
