I wear 1 band on my left knee 24/7. My knee is painful stepping up & down even w it Band on. But I think the band gives support. Maybe it’s psychological but I feel more secure having it on.
They fit as described. I am continuing to wear them and they do seem to help but some days I can't tell for sure.
Having very bad knees, this product definitely provides stability and eases the pain..
It did nothing for me.
I've used this brace off & on for the past couple weeks. For the size, it's quite effective to keep my knee pain in check while waiting for a knee replacement. It's not supportive like a full knee brace, but somehow it manages to lower the pain without being as cumbersome and stiff as a full brace. I would recommend it.
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.
