CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Breg, Inc., a premier provider of sports medicine products and services, is proud to support snocross racers Ross Martin and Paul Bauerly. Martin is this year's X Games Silver Medalist and 2 nd ranked racer, and Bauerly is among the top 20 in the sport. Both athletes value wearing knee braces to help prevent injury.
Recently in Traverse City, MI, Ross Martin was in a collision with another racer, where the competitor's sled pierced Martin's leg and got caught in his sled's suspension. Martin was wearing his Breg Fusion® knee braces and reported "I took a big hit to my quad with a ski – it went right into the aluminum frame on the brace. My first thought was that I had broken my leg, which I hadn't. I believe the braces really saved me. I am so thankful I had them on."Martin added, "The Fusion braces are working unbelievably. They are so comfortable I hardly feel like I'm wearing braces, yet they provide the protection I need." Sports braces do more than help protect during accidents; they can also be worn for joint stabilization, added support and comfort for those who have sustained injuries in the past. "I like the Fusion a lot because it comfortably moves with my knee, so I feel support at all times," said Paul Bauerly. " My Breg braces have truly helped keep me on the track over the years."
