I could not bare any weight on both knees. I effects my feet , ankles and back. It’s all aligned. Ive trie so many knee braces even custom made. None worked as I have a large thigh 24” and small calf 13”. Every one just slides down my leg when I walk. I had had these from the orthopedic dr tried them again out of desperation as walking with pain, unable to bear weight. Could not get up from any chairs this is no lie. I put these on for support BOTH KNEES for 3 days now. I CANNOT BELIEVE THE TRUE RELIEF I HAVE HAD. THIS IS NOT MADE UP I REALLY THINK THESE HAVE HELPED AND SUPPORT MY KNEES TREMENDOUSLY. I’m not a runner just a 67yr retired nurse for 42 yrs on my feet. I am riddle with arthritis through out my body, osteoarthritis NEED 2KNEE REPLACEMENT but cardiac reasons just can’t do it yet. I’ve done gel, steroids both injected and ******, even paid for amniotic tissue injection. I can’t take nsaids use voltaren for temporary relief. I have rheumatoid arthritis with monthly infusion. Constant pain to knees I CAN FULLY HONESTLY SAY THIS HAS BEEN THE ONLY BRACE THAT HAS HELPED TO GIVE ME SOME RELIEF. They don’t fall down they stay in place they just support my knees so I can walk. Yesterday and today without pain If I take them off I have pain may sleep with them. THEY HELPED ME
This is my second set. Quite a few years ago I ordered the smaller size. Needed slightly larger size now. Added velcro pieces so the flaps would not stick out. It works fine.
I have used my Cho-Pat brace for years. It is great. I did not remember my size so I remeasured. I am on the cusp of Med and Large on the size chart online . I ordered the L. Wrong choice. I am surprised that it is 2.5 inches bigger than my old one, which is a lot of extra “tongue” sticking out unattached when I put it on. So, my advice would be that if your knee measurement is at the long end of one size and the short end of the next size, order the smaller one. Better to be a little short on the wrap around than to have extra sticking out. Bottom line — this is a GREAT brace.
