This hinged knee brace is one of our most popular supports, fitting average to plus size men and women. Our orthopedic neoprene brace was designed to protect your knee from future injuries, alleviate pain, and provide comfortable all-day support.
About 1 in every 5 American adults suffer from knee pain, which makes sense considering over half of Americans are overweight to morbidly obese. Those extra pounds increase stress on your knees, which can cause chronic pain, leading to other knee-related complications, such as arthritis or osteoarthritis.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for the aching pains and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis, outside of a knee replacement. However, there are steps you can take to ease the discomfort, including the use of a plus-size knee brace or exercises for overweight knee pain. This knee brace is especially helpful among bariatric patients because its hinges help remove excess strain on your joints, stabilizing your knee so additional inflammation and damage does not occur.
This bariatric support is available in the following knee brace sizes: XL, XXL, XXXL, 4XL, 5XL, and 6XL. But to say it is an “extra-large” brace is a bit misleading, as the size XL fits more like a medium. For smaller sizes, try our Torn Meniscus Knee Brace with full flexion and extension control. See our “sizing chart” for information on how to measure for the correct fit.
This hassle-free recovery knee splint can be worn interchangeably on your right or left knee. The adjustable, wraparound configuration makes this knee support easy for bigger people with larger legs to put on. Anterior medical-grade Velcro straps located above and below the kneecap also permit easy application and fit for overweight patients.
This discreet black knee brace is 12” tall and 1/8” thick, allowing the wrap to be worn under loose pants or over fitted leggings. The neoprene material provides soothing warmth and moderate elastic compression to your sore knee, reducing swelling and encouraging blood flow to speed up your healing process.
Two hinges provide enhanced stability to the medial (inner) and lateral (outer) sides of your knee, which is especially useful if suffer from carrying around extra weight. Remove the hinges to create a low-profile knee support that is comfortable and discreet enough to wear all day.
Trying to lose weight? The extra support provided by this brace can ease extra pressure placed on your knee joint during exercise and sports.
If you find solid neoprene knee supports or ACE bandages sweaty and uncomfortable, this brace is definitely a better fit for you. Although full coverage knee sleeves provide a little extra support, they tend to bunch behind your knee joint and slide down during physical activities and sports. An opening over your kneecap reduces pressure on your sore kneecap, making this plus size brace more breathable and flexible than a solid knee sleeve. In addition, a circular cutout behind your knee (popliteal) helps prevent the brace from bunching when walking or bending.
Our customer support team is available Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central time.
