[well]If you experience knee pain or want to help prevent injury to your knee, you will be delighted to learn that ProfessorZ’s newest product is a premium knee support with just about every feature you could possibly wish such a device to have. It’s medical grade because it’s been developed by doctors and scientists and has been rigorously tested. Our new MEDiBrace Knee Support is designed to provide beneficial pain relief for a range of knee problems. We’ve designed it to be a lightweight, superior brace that won’t slip down or move away from the important area it is protecting. [/well]
The MEDiBrace Knee Support works by stabilising the meniscus and lateral collateral ligament to aid in the recovery of an injury to that area. It protects the cruciate ligament, helping to relieve the pain of knee strain.
Perhaps that is not too helpful a description for most people, but essentially – There are two special ‘spring’ devices on both sides of the support brace (and an EVA pad disc at the centre that surrounds your knee cap). The four springs allow measured mobility within a prescribed range whilst the EVA pad acts as a stabiliser that helps to reinforce the patella, your knee cap, in the proper position.
The MEDiBrace Knee Support is able to help prevent the knee from becoming injured due to poor running or exercise; Whether at the gym, or playing golf, taking fitness classes or many other sports activities where you are bending, twisting or running on your legs. It works whilst you are working out allowing you to enjoy your active lifestyle.
Made of ultra-light Neoprene material.
Unlike other products on the market, the MEDiBrace Knee Support is comfortable and lightweight. Nor is it particularly restrictive. The Neoprene material is ultra-light without compromising on support. The double elasticated Velcro straps provide adjustable comfort and support.
There are included instructions with the product to help with fitting and securing the MEDiBrace around your knee. After the three Velcro bands are secure, you can dial in the strength of the support. The brace comes with a colour instruction leaflet on how to perform this simple procedure.
Do you run or cycle after dark?
There are few if any knee braces on the market that support the safety of roadside runners or cyclists. One unique feature of the MEDiBrace is that the lining is made of special, hi-vis material commonly seen on hi-vis jackets. Because your knee is always moving as you train, it is especially noticable to on-coming vehicles. It will aid in your safety if you like to train after dark.
What’s your size?
A lot of brands produce a ‘one-size-fits-all’ knee brace. We can assure you that no medical grade device can ever be a one-size-fits-all. The circumference of the human leg can be such a vast range, that no device can possibly accommodate this range and be ultra-effective. Believe us, we have already tried this one-for-all approach.
We know it will be a nuisance for you to measure your leg, but in doing so you will be purchasing a brace that is better designed with your size of leg in mind. The ‘standard’ size is our blue MEDiBrace. If you measure the circumference your leg at 2″ (inches) above your knee cap and find it is under 18″, then the blue MEDiBrace is for you.
If you border on the 18″ or greater circumference, then we suggest you purchase our green MEDiBrace. We’ve tried to make the process as simple as possible.
Medical grade device.
The MEDiBrace has been scientifically and medically proven to help provide beneficial pain relief for a range of knee problems through its unique design. Developed in laboratories, the MEDiBrace has undergone rigorous testing and controls under strict conditions.
Nigel Robinson –
Since December 2016 I have been wearing a bulky NHS knee brace for a torn ACL and damaged MCL, for which I will be having surgery next month. Whilst it performed ‘adequately’, a final holiday before surgery prompted me to look for a lightweight knee brace, with reinforcement to stabilise my MCL.
The MEDiBrace has more than met my expectations and the anti-slip feature has been a bonus. After the first couple of wears it moulded itself to my knee shape and without doubt, the support far exceeds that of the NHS knee brace. After my holiday, I started back at the gym wearing the MEDiBrace and once again, it has been super comfortable and the double reinforcement is reassuringly sound.
It is rare for me to write a product review but I have been so impressed that I will demonstrate the MEDiBrace to my Consultant Surgeon, who specialises in soft tissue and reconstructive knee surgery.
Jenny S –
I have been a runner for many years, it’s my personal addiction and I loathe to be off running with my dodgy knee which has been my curse for over a decade now. I really enjoy doing a 5K but was always struck down with agony afterwards and it has always been the same dastardly knee that’s my Achilles heel.
I started working my way through knee supports on Amazon, I’ve tried the popular Bracoo but it wasn’t a comfortable fit for me and tended to slip down no matter how tight I had it and so didn’t provide support for me. I tried the Neo-G also, but found that to be quite a substantial item that felt needlessly large and bulky, but the Velcro wasn’t that great on the Neo-G either.
My mother uses the Medibrace back support and it’s been a miracle wonder for her, so when I saw they make knee supports too, I thought I’d give it a try. I have to say, I’m so pleased I did.
The first thing you notice when you open it up is that the quality is far superior to other braces tried before. It’s not bulky (but neither is it too flimsy like the Bracoo). The brace does go on either leg, but you have to turn it the other way around. There are instructions included.
First the Velcro straps are all one one end, not split between both like the Bracoo – So they don’t interfere with the fastening and they strap to the leg really well. Secondly, there are special grips on the inside of the lining, top and bottom – These do help to stop the brace slipping down the leg unlike other braces.
What’s really clever is the high-vis reflective material all around the edges. By the time I get in from work, most nights of the year it’s dark when I have my evening run. Having that extra light down there does make me feel safer (although I run on the footpath next to a busy road). It really shines up bright!!
Lastly, the inner lining has multiple holes to allow your leg to breathe. This doesn’t completely stop sweating, but it does reduce the incidence of it.
After running with it for over a week now, I can safely recommend the Medibrace. It is very high quality and better than the rest I have tried.
My Osteoarthritis has flared up again. My Chiropractor urged me to protect my knee with this brace. It has stablised my knee though painful now more tolerable. Thanks for fast delivery.
