It's such a great brand even many people around Asia 
buy stocks of them when they come to Japan!

The three-dimensional surgical mask for example,
is one of the Kowa's biggest hits due to having the ability to its antibacterial filter catching dust, pollen, and more.

 VANTELIN KOWA 
 Knee Joint Supporter 
In general, 
braces should be worn if you're having knee pain or 
you wish to prevent injuries during high contact sports 
where there's a higher likelihood of injury. 
Which is why it's important to choose the right support.
Kowa's VANTELIN supporter includes a "sports taping" effect
meaning supporting effects for the muscles and ligaments along with the joints, while helping to prevent excessive force such as weight from being lost.


 Not Your Average Supporter 
 "Life Taping Theory" 
 Originally, Kowa was a company that manufactured cotton fabrics and used Japanese weaving and processing technologies.
So VANTELIN supporters incorporate those required techniques 
that creates a support that stretches and has high density. 
Within everything, 
there are 3 main factors that we would like to introduce
that makes VANTELIN stand out in our opinion.


 VANTELIN Knee Supporter 
 Support Structure 
VANTELIN is based on a sports taping effect.
It's added to relieve the burden
and relax the muscles and joints of the knee. 


 VANTELIN Knee Supporter 
 Slitted Knit Structure & 
 U-Shaped Tape Structure 
When viewed from the front,
 you can see a U-shaped taping structure along the left and right sides of the knee to support the knees to minimize vibration and shaking.

Then the slitted knit structure, what they call an "anchor structure", 
refers to the function of holding both ends of the band tightly.
It keeps the supporter firmly fixed while preventing swelling 
and sliding down due to sweat and movement during use, 
and prevents the taping effect from loosening.



You can also choose from three types of protective gear 
based on your personal needs.




 VANTELIN SUPPORTERS 
 Choose according to the area 
Above we mentioned VANTELIN's knee support
but they actually have a line of 
products for functions areas 

such as the ankle, wrist, and even lower back.



If you often feel your lower back in pain
due to sitting/standing for long periods of times,
or even lifting heavy items we recommend their lower back support.
We personally like this one because while feeling that added support

it doesn't cut into you like some other lower back supports do.

Their other joint supports are great because they aren't too bulky
getting in the way of daily functions.


 VANTELIN SUPPORTERS 
 Choose according to the situation 
Even if you are confident in your health, 
you will feel your joints starting to become less sturdy 
if you are say running or climbing.
It's not always something that can be avoided,
so if you don't be careful and prepare accordingly it will lead to injuries. 

Not only athletic activities though. 
Japan has a lot of stairs,
so even something like going up and down all those stairs 

in the subway, overpass, etc., will get to you.
You will often see people wearing VANTELIN supporters daily,
which reassures us it is an item that's great for all sorts of occasions.




 VANTELIN SUPPORTERS 
 Protecting Your Body with Japanese Care 
 Whenever we are heavily active or not, 
we are consuming the energy of our joints daily.
It's easy to forget or ignore exactly how much we use them.
So next time you're at the drug store
and are interested in protecting your body from the daily deterioration

check out the VANTELIN supports in one of the aisles.
