Great product! The only brace I've found that helps with walking and knee pain! Easy to put on and not cumbersome.
This is the third time I am reordering this brace. Happy I found a brace that is comfortable and not restricting.
I play a lot of pickleball and if I forget my BANDZ, my knees are killing me! I am unsure about the magic of them but they seem to prevent my knees from doing things they should not do. I started with them a year ago after a slight injury and I just replaced them with a new set (the velcro was wearing out). Best purchase ever to keep me on the courts! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I was skeptical, but the itBandz have really helped with my arthritic knee pain. I did find the Velcro a little irritating at first, but I trimmed it just a little and problem solved. Highly recommend.
I used to wear bulky knee braces that were hot and gave me weird tan lines.
They were also a hassle to put on and take off. Itbandz give me the support I need, without the bulk and they are super easy to put on and take off. I highly recommend this product!
Use of a special neoprene provides a comfortable wearing experience.
The fastening system lets you easily adjust and control the amount of tension that the band provides you so that you can get the stability and support that is right for you.
The molded rubber insert piece mirrors the natural structure of the knee
Physical therapists love how itBandz assist in protecting your knee joints / kneecaps from stress and strain - so you can stay active and mobile.
itBandz effectively alleviate the discomfort caused by IT Band Syndrome, tendonitis, arthritis, Osgood Schlatters, other chronic knee issues due to excess weight, previous surgeries, a torn or thinning meniscus, and ACL, hip or ankle injuries.
If you suffer from arthritis and thinning cartilage (bone on bone) the tension from itBandz allows the internal support piece to gently lift the patella and act as an additional shock absorber for the knee.
The knee joint is a hinge and should only track forward and backward. Lateral motion can be introduced when tendons and ligaments get injured or overly tight from IT Band Syndrome. When these happen, the knee is pulled out of alignment and requires the additional stability provided by itBandz.
If you have tendonitis, the compression on the patellar tendon reduces strain on the tendon and allows it to heal while easing pain and reducing inflammation.
