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."
