Abstract

A support and corresponding system and method of using and producing the support, the support being for supporting a joint or body part of a wearer, the support having at least one rigid first support member, at least one fixing device for attaching the support to the wearer, and at least one second support member extending at an angle from the first support member. Optionally, the joint is a joint between first and second body parts, and the first body part is movable or pivotable relative to the second body part via the joint, and the support is arranged such that at least one of the fixing devices is operable to fix the support to the first body part, the at least one rigid support member covers at least part of at least one side of the first body part and extends over at least part of at least one side of the joint, the second support member is configured to extend to another side of the second body part to the first support member, the first support member is adapted to limit motion of the second body part and/or joint in a first direction,and the second support member is configured to limit motion of the second body part in a second direction.
