This hinged knee support has a number of features that help to stabilize the knee and prevent it from moving in harmful ways. This includes the dual axis polycentric hinges on both the inner (medial) and outer (lateral) side of the knee. The hinges also permit one to move about with a more natural range of motion.
The neoprene knee brace also features nylon both above and below the kneecap for added support. And the 1/8” thick neoprene construction of the support itself provides even warmth and compression to reduce any swelling in the vicinity of the knee
The nylon knee brace is also designed with simplicity of use in mind. It has a wrap-around configuration and its closures are located at the front of the brace. Both the brace itself and the strap tabs are secured with fasteners.
Another unique feature of this knee brace with hinges is that these hinges can be removed for a sleeker fit.
The brace is also open at the front and back of the knee, which many consider more comfortable for extended wear. Plus, an open-patella support, while slightly less supportive than the closed variety, will not apply irritating pressure to the kneecap. The more open design also allows more flexibility, which makes for a comfortable wear for daily use and low-impact/non-contact sports. We do not recommend using this brace for high-impact or contact-sports. With contact-sports, you run the risk of the hinges breaking or not lasting as long.

Speaking of sports, these are the cause of a wide number of injuries to the knee for which a hinged knee brace might be helpful. It is fairly safe to say that for most injuries (minus some of the more serious nature), treatment usually involves resting the knee, applying ice and compression, elevating the leg and taking an anti-inflammatory. These steps are also recommended after surgery for some of the more serious injuries in many cases.
This inexpensive knee brace can help with a number of conditions, from instability to general knee pain to troubles with the cartilage of the knee joint (e.g., chondromalacia, osteoarthritis) to patella dysfunction to Osgood Schlatters disease. It does so by easing the amount of pressure on the knee joint and preventing any movements that might cause further damage. This neoprene hinged knee brace stabilizes the knee when it is vulnerable and more prone to further injury.
The brace also applies compression around the knee cap. This along with rest and pain killers can reduce painful inflammation.
This hinged knee support comes at a very affordable price. But the low price tag does not imply low quality. Following are some of the features that make this a popular and effective wrap-around knee brace with hinges.
Easy to order and fast ship. Brace works well as intended. Velcro is very strong and "grippy" so it will not loosen on its own. Solidly built, good quality. Would recommend.
These are the second set I have ordered. The first set was for me. Big guy with bad knees. The brace was a big help.as I was a coach. The 2 I just bought were for my son. He is a 6-4 350lbs lineman and these braces have worked well! Good fit, great price and fast delivery. I am sure we will get more down the road.
Great. Item is a little bigger than chart shows for size.
It work well for my uses I was happy with the knee brace
Hard to get tight enough and sometimes slides down. It could have been a little longer on the Velcro fastener to secure easier.It help to keep the knee from bending too far backwards.
