Patellofemoral Pain Knee Stabilizing Brace: Top 5 Rated Features

  1. Protective U-Shaped Padded Buttress

    Limit painful patellar movement with this comforting, padded buttress. Designed in the shape of a horseshoe, this support holds your kneecap in place, ensuring you avoid patellar dislocation or subluxation during your recovery process.

  2. Supportive Spiral Side Stabilizers

    Medial or lateral, side-to-side movement of the kneecap can be painful and frustrating when you are trying to stay active during your post-injury recovery. To prevent knee movement pain, our patellar sleeve features extra support to keep the kneecap in place. Located on both sides of the knee, flexible stays provide the ultimate level of stability for your weak kneecap, keeping it in position while still allowing you to bend so you can comfortably perform daily activities such as squatting, driving, climbing stairs, or sitting.

  3. Lightweight, Breathable Material

    Made of a cool, durable, and comfortable, neoprene alternative, this stabilizer allows heat and moisture to escape. The sweat-resistant kneecap brace is perfect to wear while participating in physical activities such as running, hiking, athletic sports, exercising, and more!

  4. Simple & Quick Pull-on Application

    Applying this patellar sleeve is as easy as pulling it up your leg. Hate wearing a knee sleeve due to the constant sliding down as you walk and move throughout the day? This chondromalacia wrap features two adjustable compression straps, located directly above and below your kneecap for ultimate support that will stay up throughout the day.

  5. Open-Patella & Popliteal Design

    This patellar stabilizer is unique in the way that it is designed with both an open patella and an open popliteal feature to relieve any painful pressure on your kneecap! The open kneecap design of this sleeve allows for improved breathability and flexibility, while the cut-out behind your kneecap prevents any bunching during movement.

How Does a U-Shaped Knee Brace Work?

There are a variety of conditions and injuries that can cause knee pain, especially those related to the kneecap (patella). If you participate in sports, or physical activity such as running and hiking, it is very likely that you have experienced kneecap pain. This patellar instability brace can help correct the kneecap’s alignment, improve its function, and provide a non-invasive and cost-efficient way to manage your symptoms.

To relieve, protect and treat this patellar pain, it is crucial to keep the kneecap, and the soft tissues and bone around the kneecap fully supported. This pull-on patella sleeve provides full support through the padded buttress and side stabilizing stays, which work to keep the kneecap in its proper position.

The Ultimate Patella Protector While You Stay Active

Fully recovering from a knee injury can be a slow process. It can feel extremely slow if you are used to living an active lifestyle and are unable to exercise, or if your injury resulted from a sport that you are eager to participate in again. To have a successful recovery and avoid another injury, it is extremely important to be careful and take it easy during your time of recovery. Ensuring that your knee is properly protected while you begin to be active again is crucial.

This knee stabilizer was designed to protect your knee while it is in motion. The heavy-duty side stabilizers, adjustable compression straps, and u-shaped padded buttress keep your kneecap in place, avoiding any buckling or patellar instability. Promote healing and get back to your active lifestyle, pain-free!

    Sizing way off

    I have ordered this one before and it fit great. This one was way different.

    Haven’t used it yet as it is slightly too small. But I want to keep and get the 4xl too so as my edema subsides I’ll be able to use the 3xl. The sweet gal on the phone thought that the 3xl would be better but it’s about 2 inches from the edges coming together and not even close to the Velcro.

    Good support but rubs back of knee

    The brace provided good support while playing racquet sports, however, the opening in the back of the brace chafes the skin behind the knee. I had to put tape, or a sleeve under the brace to stop the chafing.

    I thought the size would fix, but it did not.
