Technical Information

1
Why wear this knee support?
Wearing a knee support may be recommended if you have suffered ligament damage or you are unsure how your knees will hold up when you get back into sport (basketball, football, handball, tennis, running, trail running, gymnastics, judo, skiing) after a sprain. It is easy to put on and has airy fabric and a shape designed to suit your knee and keep you comfy.
2
What is a sprain?
A sprained knee is when you stretch or tear one or more ligaments in your knee: the medial collateral ligament (MCL), fibular collateral ligament (LCL), the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). Sprains are not a serious problem when the ligaments are just stretched. They become fairly serious when the lateral ligaments alone are torn. Serious sprains are those when one of the cruciate and/or lateral ligaments is torn completely.
3
Why protect your knees?
The knee is an important joint that is used heavily for sports activities. It absorbs impacts and stabilises you as well as withstanding huge stresses, particularly when running, jumping, landing and changing direction.Falling over when skiing is also particularly risky for your knees.

Uncomfortable
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Recovering from torn knee ligaments, my knee was swollen but still needed support. The support guard was quite small, considering it was large. I struggled to get it on and then found it to be very uncomfortable around the back of the knee. I’ve only worn it a few times and for me it was a waste of money !

Bought for my daughter and she was delighted with it - didn’t slip and her knee felt safe and secure.
A little uncomfortable.

I purchased x2 of the Mid 500 Adult Knee brace to give that extra support while skiing (which while writing the review I'm still on the ski trip). I have only need to use one of the knee braces, but I have found it to be very uncomfortable while skiing, due to the support straps crossing and cutting in at the back of the knee. So hence I will not be using the knee support any further during my the rest of my skiing trip. I'll take my chance and hope my knee hold out!
Great support!.. Just what my knee needed!
Used for 1 week or less
I run 10-12 miles per week... I get periodic pain in my knee, articular cartilage... Bought this brace to give some support when I need it... Not to restrictive and gives my knee the support it needs. Excellent!

none
Provides support but not comfortable
Used for 1 week or less
I have tried a lot of different knee supports over the years. The best of them provide firm support unobtrusively so you can wear them for a long time without really noticing. The Aptonia does the first bit: it's tight (had to change size!) and the cross strapping provides support to front and rear of knee. However, it isn't adjustable and I found it felt tighter and more uncomfortable the longer I wore it. I think this could have been better designed, possibly with a rear velcro fastening strip to allow adjustment, rather than the all-or-nothing pull-on sock approach.
Very supportive for whole knee - front and back
Gets uncomfortable and not very adjustable
