5 Best Features of This Arthritis Neoprene Knee Brace for Men & Women

  1. Available in a Wide Range of Sizes

    Designed to fit average to plus-size men and women, this bariatric support is available in wide range of sizes. But to say it is an “extra-large” brace is a bit misleading, as with this brace, the size XL fits more like a medium would. That being said, it is extremely important to measure before purchasing this knee support to ensure you receive a size that will fit you properly!

    you will need to make sure that you measure for your knee brace before you buy them to get the right fit

    If you’re on the hunt for a smaller sized knee brace, check out our Torn Meniscus Knee Brace with full flexion and extension control.

  2. Simple, Wrap-Around Application

    This hassle-free recovery knee splint was created with the fit of large legs and thighs in mind. The effortless wraparound configuration and tabs make this knee support super easy to put on and take off. Anterior fastener straps are located just above and below the kneecap, allowing for easy application and overall fit for bigger men and women. Plus, you can wear this brace interchangeably on your right or left knee!

  3. Made of Premium-Grade Neoprene

    Looking for discreet arthritic knee support? This brace is black in color, 12 inches tall and ⅛ inches thick, allowing the wrap to be worn under loose pants or over fitted leggings. Constructed of comfortable neoprene material, this obesity knee pain brace provides soothing warmth and moderate elastic compression to help reduce swelling and encourage blood flow to speed up your healing process.

  4. Includes Dual-Axis Polycentric Hinges

    Trying to lose weight? The extra support provided by this brace can ease extra pressure placed on your knee joint during anything from exercise and sports to standing, walking, and work. Two heavy-duty hinges provide enhanced stability to the medial (inner) and lateral (outer) sides of your knee, which is especially useful if you suffer from carrying around extra weight. Need a lower level of support? Simply remove the hinges to create a low-profile knee support that is comfortable and discreet enough to wear all day.

  5. Open-Patella & Open-Popliteal Design

    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.

the opening over the kneecap on our plus size knee brace prevents it from sliding down while wearin it

Do I Need a Plus Size Knee Brace?

About 1 in every 5 American adults suffer from weight-related 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 painful knee-related complications, such as arthritis or osteoarthritis

Unfortunately, there is no cure for the aching pain 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 adults because its hinges help remove excess strain on your joints, stabilizing your knee so additional inflammation and damage do not occur.

I'm 6'8" and 440lbs,

I'm very tall and heavy. I started working out and my knee was killing me. I was worried these would be disappointing. DO THE MEASUREMENTS they recommend. Fit is perfect and doesn't slide down even during HIIT workout. Work every penny X 1000.

Orthopedic MD said I need a knee replacement a year ago due to osteoarthritis. But I haven't been able to take off enough weight to have the surgery which I don't want anyway. I can barely walk because of the pain and weakness in my knee. Got my brace today and put it on. I just stood up and walked like a normal person! No pain, no limp and my knee feels strong. Walking the dog was a breeze. LOVE this brace!

Overall, it's a very good brace--at a good price, with strong stays, yet it lasts for only a couple of years as the elasticity falters.

I had a total left knee arthroplasty in 12/2015, some 15 years after being struck by a car while I was jogging on a green light. I have two knee braces with the sturdy stays, and they serve my needs perfectly. My knees are stabilized, pain is eliminated or minimized, it's very comfortable, and the adjustable straps lock the brace into place, so there is no slippage. However, brace fails to control swelling, or water on the knee. Next, the brace materials aren't that breathable. My skin gets very moist during any use and turns a slightly different color, perhaps bc I strap it on tightly. Also, the velcro wears away over time, disallowing 100 % attachment for optimum stability. That is the velcro collects all sorts of materials, causing the straps to lose adherence. Further, the single stitching along the seams come apart with wear. For example, I may need to wear it for 10 hours a day, especially during the winter months. ACE should triple or surge stitch all seams. The only minor problem is that driving with the brace attached is a bit of a stiff challenge, and I sometimes fear it will come apart. Overall, it's a good brace and does the job with stabilizing the knee, alleviating or minimizing pain, providing assurance of protection from accidental bangs against table legs and hits against just about any hard surface. Walking for several miles for exercise is assured and maintains my mobility. The brace allows me to endure some of the pain while minimizing the number of Kenalog injections during the winter months. ACE ought to consider providing consumers a lifetime replacement guarantee. Based on manufacturing costs along, 3M will not lose money bc the item works. Then, to ensure repeat customers, the ACE logo ought to be on the front of the brace, and that's free advertising. Last, when a customer seeks to take advantage of the replacement guarantee, 3M can up sell to get the customer into a newer model, of course with a great discount for switching to the newer, more expensive brace. Just sayin'.
