Just before the World Championship, I was injured on my left knee in Denmark, and the athletic trainer of the national team recommended that I use the ZAMST support. I've been using it for many years since then. All of the supports that I am using are perfect and its comfortable fit is my most favorite point. Its tight-fitting is appropriate for me and I feel secure and natural.
