To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have arthritic knees and from the reviews I thought this would help me. I do have large thighs but I did manage to get it round them. I could not bend my knee without the straps at the back digging in, so I am returning it because it would not be comfortable for me walking. I am very disappointed and will be going back to the kinesiology tape which I find does support the painful area for me. I was hoping to get something equally supportive that was re-useable.
This concept is great but the execution is not so good. The velcro straps on the backside are awkward to fasten and create bulk behind your knee when it is bent or when you are working out. The two straps you wrap around add to that bulk making it generally uncomfortable on the back of your knee.
If you are standing and do not need to bend your knee, this bulk may not be a bother.
I did find that despite the rubber intended to help keep the brace in place, it slide down. The only way to stop the slide was to have it on too tight (digging into my upper thigh).
For the timeframe I had it on and in the right position, my knee did feel more supported. It also helped to reduce the swelling.
This is a wonderful knee support product. I do have ONE complaint. The velcro that is used to hold the two top pieces together and two bottom pieces together are not made out of the same VERY sticky velcro that the Figure 8 strap is made out of. The velcro that is used to connect the top and bottom pieces are made out of a fine/slippery/plastic velco that has lost it's grip. It's very disappointing. Thankfully the Figure 8 strap maintains some stability for the top (wraps around the back). Once the bottom piece goes, it will be in the trash
Amazon shipping no problem arrived on time Knee brace not comfortable I have to straps tight in order not to come off, and are digging On my skin. Leaving lots of marks after, i barely bend my knees and hearts,the velcro grab to Much an so hard to undo,and the velcro is already eating up the other part for only couple Used
Comfortable, easy to use. I have a small leg/knee and I did not find this very supportive of my knee cap in particular because I have a smaller build. Compared to my more expensive one, I'd say this one is more suited for minor acute injuries or some pain. It has a nasty odour and it needed to be aired out a couple days.
