Open Patella Knee Brace for Compression and Support

This compression knee brace provides support and compression to the knee to help with knee strains or sprains, joint pain, and recovery from other knee injuries and problems. The spiral stays of this brace add medial and lateral support. They also keep the knee orthotic from rolling over and help it to remain situated with the kneecap in the open patella slot.

This knee sleeve with stays is constructed of CoolTex, a neoprene alternative that is breathable, lightweight and comfortable.  This material is also hypo-allergenic, making this knee strain knee sleeve more attractive to active individuals or those in sports. Like traditional neoprene knee braces, this CoolTex knee brace is also free of latex.

The open patella design of this knee sprain brace makes it more mobility friendly so you can walk, run, jog, and generally move around easily. The open patella also keeps direct pressure away from the kneecap. The black knee sleeve applies compression to the tissues surrounding the knee instead, promoting blood flow and reducing inflammation. 

This comfortable knee sleeve comes in eight different sizes ranging all the way up to 4XL. Therefore, odds are high one will find the perfect size. This is a compression knee sleeve and therefore it is important that the sleeve be snug around your leg. If you notice the sleeve sliding down, you likely need a smaller size. When measuring, if you are in between sizes, order the smaller size for the best fit. For knee braces in even larger sizes, check out our full selection of bariatric products.

This breathable knee support for sprains and more helps with both the compression and protection aspect, making it ideal for dealing with numerous sources of knee pain, such as moderate knee sprains or strains. The spiral stays provide medial and lateral support and the brace itself compresses the area surrounding the kneecap.
