I have arthritis in my knee and I work out 6 days a week running, aerobics,weights, yoga ect. So I needed something that could provide really good support but not constrict my knee to much. This was perfect provides excellent support its comfy easy to put on. Also I do bootcamps out side in the mud and rain on the floor ect and the knee support is easy washed and quick to dry.
Comfortable and soft yet plenty of support! I have trouble with the alining of my knee since my meniscus is damaged (due to multiple sports injuries), but this keeps everything in place and gives my knee stability. Especially thanks to the opening for the knee cap and the inbuilt 'gel ring'. The straps crossing and wrapping around also adds to the support, what a clever design!
It also stays put surprisingly well! I work in a shop and stand and walk all day and rarely have to adjust or hoist it back up, like other braces I've tried.
This one really stands out! Definitely recommend! Thnx Bodyprox!
My doctors told me I had the heavy duty knee brace I had was the best brace available for my condition - a knee that kept buckling under me. Knee would make a noise and pain would radiate up and down my leg. Recommended patella band was also useless. I found this brace and had nothing to lose but a few $$. What a difference !! Knee pops occasionally but pain does not radiate and I do not buckle under as before. Does not cure the problem but makes walking a lot safer and pleasant. Lightweight - does not slip and I think the secret is the gel around the knee and those wonderful criss-cross straps. I ordered a second one.
It's OK, for the £15 I paid for it. It has a couple of (foam?) side stiffeners sewn in to each side, and the wrap-around straps seem like a clever idea. I would expect "What is the best knee support" to depend on the problem that needs to be solved, and I'm not competent to have an opinion about that. My problem was with the joint between the Median Collateral Ligament and the tibia, rather than an unstable knee, so I found it a bit stiff for ordinary walking and I could feel a slight edge on he back of the knee - but maybe that would be good for some other problem ot something more athletic. For me, I think I wanted "warmth" rather than "support", so personally I prefer the Bracoo KS10, https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005BINV84/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 for comfort when walking.
It was not what I expected it to be. I bought it after reading reviews. It is very uncomfortable from the back of knee. Bites the skin badly. It does have some thing in it like stated in product description but it provides no support. It keeps knee warm but uncomfortable. Meaning, the support springs do nothing but irritate. I am recovering from ligament injury but it does nothing for my knee. So beware if you are recovering from knee injury. May be you can buy something simpler and cheaper to keep your knee warm. Do not expect any support from this brace. I would have returned it but I used it for a day out before realising, its completely useless for me.
My knee joint slips from side to side the only permanent solution is a replacement, which is not going to happen for sometime. This device is the best support I have had although it is a bit bulky and creases behind the knee when bent, which causes some discomfort. I have one made by a German company which cost a lot more than this one, so the Bodyprox really is a good buy.
I use to run 3 times per week around 5 Km. I developed a knee injury where a strong pain kicked in after approx 3Km.
I used this brace for two months while running. It was enough to recover from the minor injury while still keep up the work out. I strongly advise to use it if the circumstances of your condition reflect mine. As it really does the job, beyond what I would have expected.
I ran painless. Although afterward the knee was painful.
So after running I used a knee sleeve to reduce the pain and keep the knee in the right position.
My advices are:
- try to regulate it more or less tight according to the compression on your calf. Reaching the tightest you can bear running; - make sure that the straps support evenly your knee keeping it just at the centre of the hole; - if the pain comes up while running stop and try to regulate it better for the next try.
Finally, the pressure on the calf is uncomfortable. However for me it was better running than giving up for weeks/months.
