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.
I recently started playing pickleball and found I was in need of some knee support. I tried the conventional sleeve type and was still experiencing pain / soreness after I played. I did some research and found the itBandz. Based on what I learned (and all the other excellent ratings / comments), I decided to give them a try. I sure am glad I did. The soreness has not been eliminated however, it has been tremendously reduced. I've had a couple of my pickleball friends ask about the itBandz and I can truly say I'm have (and will) sung their praises. I am one happy customer.
The bands helped me walk better with less pain on my knees.
Works very well
I have tendonitis in my elbow and I use it there too! What a relief!
For the first time in 40 years, I don't have restless legs at night! No need to get up and walk, take advil or suffer. I put these on at bedtime and no more restless leg!
I've recommended them to my sister who is a nurse and on her feet a lot. Thank you!!
