Fits on the bottom not on the top good luck with this then it rolls all over! so hard to work with.
UPDATE!!! The customer service on this product is AMAZING!!! When they saw I had trouble with my sleeve they reached out to me to offer solutions or to move to a larger size. That was really nice as I am not big on returning products that do work just might be wrong for me. This was a nice surprise and I really appreciated that!
I am absolutely amazed at the difference the sleeves have made in my comfort and mobility. I have severe arthritis, multiple tears in both meniscus, synovitis, and frequent bleeding in the knee joints and surrounding tissues. Constant pain and swelling in both knees has kept me in a wheelchair for the last 6 years since I am not a candidate for surgery. Recently a brace fabricator tried to make custom braces but each product has been unsatisfactory. I was not hopeful that there would be any product that would help me. But I was wrong! When I first put the Athledic sleeves on, the compression was comforting and provided a sense of security. The ability to adjust the placement and tension of both straps provided superior support and customization. It took a few hours but the pain level was decreased in each knee by at least half of what it had been. After a couple of days of wearing the sleeves I couldn't believe how much the swelling had decreased. I have been able to stand and actually walk short distances. The sleeves prevented the hyperextension in one knee that has been a persistent problem. I now have hope and a reason to believe that the compression, support, and adjustibility of the sleeves will produce even greater results in my comfort and mobility. Every similar product in the past has slipped out of place, lost elasticiy, and failed to produce results. Just the opposite with the Athledic sleeves so far. I have no words to describe the difference the sleeves have made in my comfort and quality of life each day, and expect even greater results with time.
My father has pretty bad arthritis, and we try literally everything to help relieve his pain. Nothing really ever works. I decided to buy this brace to see if it would help him any. It actually did help him a bit, especially when walking, and going up and down the stairs. That alone makes me give this five stars, since it's rare for anything to help his joints.
When I got it I decided to try it on before my dad to make sure it wasn't uncomfortable, itchy, or anything that might cause issues. It comes with a little paper showing how to put the straps on, and it was super easy to follow for both me and my father. It is very comfortable, and the fabric the brace is made of feels so good against your skin. I purchased a small, and it fit perfectly on me and was a little bit tight on my dad (which is what we wanted). I'm 5'4, 115lbs, and my dad is 6'3 and has pretty skinny legs, only a bit bigger than mine. It stretched easily, and my dad had no difficulties getting it on. The fabric is breathable, and my dad had no problems with sweating while having this on for hours each day. The only issue I have is that you have to fold the first part of the Velcro strap to get it under the loop, so you don't accidentally ruin the fabric by getting the Velcro stuck. This in my opinion isn't a big deal.
My dad has been using this for hours each day, and while it doesn't 100% get rid of his knee pain, it relieves a lot of it. He is able to walk down the stairs a lot easier, and he hasn't been complaining as much about walking. I'd love to later purchase one of these for when I work out, hopefully by then I could get it in different colors, which would be awesome. For anyone else that's looking to purchase this, just a heads up that you will need to hand wash this. Which is super easy, just warm water, a bit of non-staining soap, and then let it air dry. Try not to get any water on the Velcro. After I did this, the brace looked brand new.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with this brace. It looks good, it's breathable, it fits easily, isn't complicated, and helps relieve my fathers knee pain. I would recommend this to anyone, especially anyone with arthritis.
My wife who stands all day at work was complaining of knee and leg pains. She went to the doctor and was told that she has arthritis. I bought this hoping that she can get some relief. After a few days of wearing it she is definitely better off and now wants one for her other leg. Highly recommended if you have knee or joint pain in your legs.
I just got this for both of my knees and tried it on a HIIT tabata cardio work out and was incredibly impressed so I came back online to write about it. I have a bad knee that is a combination of a possible meniscus tear and patella instability. I am 28 years old and average size. My thigh was about 18inches so I got the mediums which fit perfect. The gripper around the thigh works very well and not once did I have to fix it during my workout. I do recommend to follow the instructions and do not get the velcro onto the wrap it is horrible to try to get off. My knee didn't have any pain (just some small pops every once and awhile) and I was able to do reverse squats without any issues. I am very happy I got these braces as I had not found anything to work since.
First I have to comment on the seller: great experience. Originally my knee brace arrived without the much desired bands. I contacted the seller and was sent a replacement in a quick couple of days! Very helpful and extremely impressed. Quality is beyond my expectations and I am using this snug sleeve to increase my walking. The Velcro is sturdy, the bands are just stretchy enough to add support without being too restrictive as sometimes you trade stability and tension for flexibly. This sleeve and bands have just the right give. Granted it is now weeks after my knee surgery and I'm starting to walk. This is also the right size (x-small) for a petite 4'10 woman who weighs about 92 pounds.
so obviously by the title I did get a size smaller than what I thought I needed but I definitely need needed the support and it definitely gives that to my kneecap it’s helped me so much I was in so much pain and I couldn’t sleep and it has done wonders I also am a barber student and stand at a kiosk all day so this honestly helps I have it on right now I’m just the band and although it is tight I am buying another one in an extra large BUT needless to say I think my husband can use the large and I will use the extra large they do you have a great money back or return policy or exchange for sizes but I’m so happy with it I’m keeping it and buying a different size thank you to this company !
The support is great, the silicone holding it in place can cause injury. Per the measurement chart, 5" above the knee 20", so I ordered L. The 1st night I wore it, the silicone dug into my thigh and rubbed blisters on my legs. I am standing for 10 hr shifts with minimum movement. I adjusted the location of the band several times during my shift to alleviate the pressure and rubbing, but all I did was create a bigger irritation. Overall the brace did support my knee very well. I would suggest, if you measure close to the high end of the chart, I would move to the next size up. I will be buying the XL to try after my blisters heal and the welps go away :/
Update: After a few weeks customer service reached out to me to offer me free replacements of the new sleeves that were coming out in hopes of relieving the blistering. It took a few more weeks then on 2/5 the reached out to say they have the new sleeves available and just wanted to make sure I was still interested in them. I said yes, I would the chance to try them. The braces do work fantastically until it rubbed blisters on my let after 1 day and I could not continue to wear them. As of today 2/17 I have not heard a word or received the new ones.
