Extra Large Knee Brace in Sizes up to 6XL
This knee brace for large people is made of comfortable neoprene with nylon on either side of the support. It features dual axis polycentric hinges that provides support both to the medial (inner) side of the knee and the lateral (outer) side. This makes it well suited for a variety of knee injuries as well, such as a tear to either the lateral or medial meniscus. (Check out our full line of knee injury products.)These hinges can also be removed for a sleeker fit, making a great plus size knee wrap.
The larger knee brace is also easy to apply and adjust. This plus-size knee support has a wrap-around design with strap tabs that are secured with Velcro, making it easy to put on and adjust the amount of compression it applies. The knee brace’s closure is in the front (anterior) area of the support for easy access and patient comfort.
The large neoprene knee brace also provides even compression and warmth across the area it covers, in the interest of reducing inflammation and promoting blood flow. This can help ease discomfort associated with knee injuries and speed along the recovery process.
A Plus Size Knee Brace for Obesity Knee Pain, Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
Each pound of body weight results in around 5 lbs. of force on the knee. Therefore, being overweight or obese significantly increases the amount of strain on the knees. This, in turn, also significantly increases the risk of developing osteoarthritis at a young age. It can also accelerate the progression of arthritis. Learn more about how obesity and knee pain are connected.
Wearing a plus size knee brace can help treat knee pain associated with obesity for obese or overweight patients, and can also treat osteoarthritis by reducing the strain on the joints and stabilizing the knee so that additional inflammation and damage does not result.
However, losing weight is key to relieving this discomfort. Besides maintaining a healthy diet, one will likely also need to incorporate some exercise into a weight loss plan. So as to minimize strain on the knees, one should partake in low-impact activities like swimming, cycling or aerobics. Again, BraceAbility’s hinged plus-size knee brace can reduce strain on the knees as one goes about such activities.
This bariatric knee brace is perfect for big men or women, and is constructed of warm, comfortable 1/8" neoprene with nylon on two sides. The wrap around configuration and strap tabs make this knee support easy for bigger people with large legs to put on. The anterior closure on this bariatric knee splint provides easy application and fit for overweight patients. Removable hinges on this knee brace provide medial/lateral support for knees that suffer from carrying around extra weight. Remove the hinges on this knee brace for larger legs to create a plus size knee compression wrap that is comfortable and discreet enough to be worn all day.
