As we age, the cartilage in our knees begins to wear down and become thinner, which can cause the bones in the joint to rub against each other. This can lead to inflammation, pain, and stiffness in the knee joint, which can make it difficult to move or perform activities such as walking or climbing stairs.

If that wasn’t bad enough, ageing also results in our muscles and tendons weakening, which can contribute to knee pain and make the joint more susceptible to injury. Other factors such as obesity, genetics, and previous injuries can also increase the likelihood of developing knee pain as we grow older.

Understanding this, Ebene created a line of products that are formulated with their enhanced therapeutic technology – Unique Japan Bio-Ray Technology – to promote blood and oxygen circulation in the affected area, to ease pain and discomfort.

Bio Ray Therapeutic Technology (BRT) can be beneficial for active individuals who want to remain pain-free. BRT involves the use of far-infrared rays to stimulate healing in the body’s cells and tissues. These rays penetrate deep into the skin and provide a soothing, warming effect that can alleviate pain and inflammation.

Ebene’s tourmaline-infused socks and knee guards have been designed to emit far-infrared rays when in contact with the skin. This can help to increase blood flow, promote healing, and reduce pain and discomfort in the affected areas. By using BRT and tourmaline-infused products, active individuals can reduce the risk of injury and improve their performance, allowing them to continue participating in the activities they love without the fear of pain or discomfort.

A safe form of therapeutic infrared ray emitted by a unique blend of natural trace mineral elements, the wavelength is similar to the sun’s infrared rays, which works by generating heat energy, facilitating deeper heat penetration and increasing the flow of nutrients towards the affected area to reduce muscle fatigue and pain.

So whatever exercise you prefer to engage in, you can now do so with minimum pain, with Ebene’s range of products that provide support to your legs and joints, while promoting circulation. Here are a few of the products that we personally tried, and recommend:

Ebene Bio-Ray Foot Massage Socks, $39.05 for a pair

Japan Bio-Ray Technology promotes better blood and oxygen circulation in your feet which helps prevent and relieve cramps and numbness. These socks can be worn to bed to keep body warm, which is precisely what I did, and for the first time in a long time, I did not wake up to my usual painful leg cramps.

These socks can even be worn in the day to prevent foot odour. But if you have stinky feet, I recommend you go to your GP and get a prescription for anti-fungal medication, and be sure to wash your socks after every wear.

The socks are also supposed to help with nocturia (when you wake up several times during the night to urinate), which I don’t have an issue with, and therefore cannot comment on, but is also great for people with diabetes, as it can improve a sluggish circulation. The socks are available in black and beige for women, and black for men.

Ebene Bio-Ray Knee Guard With Tourmaline, $72.65 for a pair

I have been suffering with knee pain ever since I decided to take up running. And after months of treatment, I have not felt any long term relief, but wearing this knee guard really helps. While I have taken a break from running, the knee guard gives me firm knee support, and makes brisk walking so much more comfortable.

The Japan Bio-Ray Technology helps to promote blood and oxygen circulation to relieve pain, inflammation and swelling, while the infused tourmaline provide daily warm therapy to relieve knee pain by relaxing the surrounding muscles. The knee guard comes in a breathable and comfortable material that is suitable for everyday wear, and is available in beige and in sizes S, M, L and XL.
