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.

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.
Got to say! Been using mine on every bike ride and this thing actually works great! doesn’t move at all with thousands of Pedro strokes!
I have struggled with daily knee pain for the past year due to arthritis and recently diagnosed IT issues. I’m a Fedex driver and avid softball player, so I’m always on the go. I’ve tried all the gadgets, chiropractors, and medical massage. Nothing helped. I thought my softball career was over. Within an hour of putting the band on, I was pain free! I can’t thank you enough!
I have bad arthritis in my knees and I read about these and thought I would try them. I love them. My knee pain is less when wearing them and it feels more stable.
I wear mine everyday since I have a torn meniscus. It is so much better than any knee brace I own. I have 4 other kinds of knee braces and the ITbandz is my first choice!
Just got mine today and could instantly notice a difference. My knee had been sore all day and when I got home I put the band on and instantly experienced relief. anxious to try it tomorrow when my knee is fresh and refreshed. I definitely recommend this product.
