It keeps getting better. I can walk pain free for the first time in months. Fits well and is so comfortable I forget I’m wearing it.
Loving these bands am am glad I purchased 2 of them. My knee no longer pops out, 99% of the time. Wearing this band has boosted my confidence when I am walking on treadmill or for exercise. I highly recommend it!
I was very surprised that these two narrow itBandz really worked. I generally wear a elastic sleeve and found these itBandz to be much more comfortable. Yes, I definitely would recommend them.
For the last 20+ years I have used several supports and knee braces when I run my dogs in agility. These are by far the easiest and simplest to use. But most importantly they are the only ones that work, period. I put them on in the morning and don't take them off until bed. I can walk more freely and without pain.
These knee braces have done the trick for me! Years of hiking and mountain climbing caught up to me, and simple walking was difficult, due to the lateral motion of my knees. These give me all the support that I need, and have restored my confident and firm stride.
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.
