Detailed Description

Knee Brace for Arthritis, Obesity Joint Pain & Ligament Injuries

This knee support is a comfortable way to ease obesity knee pain. The wrap around hinged knee brace is made of a breathable, lightweight alternative to neoprene. This material is also moisture-wicking, which adds to its comfort factor. The brace is free of latex and hypoallergenic.

The open popliteal area as well as the open patella of this knee brace for obese person also increases its breathability, in addition to their other functions. Besides preventing sweat buildup, the open popliteal (back of knee) design keeps the knee brace for obese individuals from bunching up.

The open patella design of this obese knee brace will not pressure the kneecap for those dealing with an injury to the knee or obesity knee problems. An open patella design is also considered more comfortable for extended use of knee braces for obese patients. It also supports the patella.

The heavy-duty hinges make this an apt knee brace for morbidly obese people and others in need of support they can trust. The hinges are designed to provide medial and lateral support, which helps stabilize the knee when one is going about his or her day or doing more active activities.

Application of this knee brace is also simple. The wrap-around obesity brace closes at the front (anterior) of leg. There is also a Velcro strap above and below the kneecap for additional adjustments to fit. The closures for these are also at the front of the leg.

Obesity and Knee Pain

Every pound of body weight puts about five pounds of force on the knee. Thus, being overweight can increase one’s risk of injuries and can cause one’s knee to wear out faster than it might otherwise. For example, being overweight or obese notably increases one’s risk of suffering osteoarthritis or the acceleration of existing arthritis. See more products for treating osteoarthritis.

Actually too big!

"

For the first time I found a new brace that was actually too big for my large legs! I was actually between the 5xl and 6xl, so I ordered the larger size that way it wouldn't be too snug as I've experienced in the past with other brands. However, I should have listened to their recommendation because the brace was way too big!!! Unfortunately I am in the process of exchanging the brace but it appears to be a very well made, good quality brace and I am anxious for my exchange.

I had a quadricep rupture. I am 6 foot 3 inches 325lbs. Ordered this brace true to size when I got the next day I ordered it again. It helped me through rehab and I wear it daily because it take soft tissue 3 to 6 months to heel. This brace helps me every day in my rehab and getting back to the outdoors, does what it said and very comfortable. Thanks BraceAbility for helping me get back to life.
