All is well with my knee brace, as it has met all of my expectation in terms of providing support for my knee when I perform my daily workout (70-80 minutes). The knee brace is as advertised. Also, no further issues with my arthritic knee, when wearing or not wearing the knee brace as the brace provides a positive lasting effect. Also, I have found this business to be very customer friendly..

TechWare Pro Knee Brace Support
Currently unavailable

I have only used this brace once, but it seems to stabilize my knee quite well to where I can move around and be a little more agile. ‘Be careful to not pull straps too tight cause it will cause a significant amount of discomfort on the back of knee. Good product thus far.

Five Stars

Iltra Flex Athletic Knee Sleeve

Very pleased with the style/weight and overall quality of this product. Fit/use....TBD. Will update my review later this week. A+ so far!

Cam the ultra flex athletic knee compression sleeve be washed in a washing machine?

My advice is to use cold water and let air dry. Hope this helps. The product is amazing. ricardo

Will this help out strains?

Yes, most likely, it will help, depending on the severity of the strain. If the strain is severe, a knee brace or other remedy may be necessary instead of an elastic compression sleeve, such as this. The UFlex Athletics Knee Compression Sleeve helps to keep the joint properly aligned during the healing of a strained or pulled muscle.

UFlex Athletics Knee Compression Sleeve

I like them, Bought a second one , They are supportive, Well made.

Great for athletics

Love these knee braces! Just used mine to hike Mt Whitney. I couldn’t have done it without the braces! Great quality and fit.

UFlex Athletics Knee Compression Sleeve

Well made. It provides good support for my uses, which are field events in Open Masters USATF meets. Is also fairly priced.

Do you start measuring for 4 inches above top og knee cap os middle of knee cap

I'm not sure where to start measuring but I can tell you that my husband is 6'3" and I ordered him the large and he said the fit is perfect. He also said this is great for people wanting to use it for athletic support.

Where is the size chart?

Go to Amazon web site and look up Ultra Flex Athletic Elbow. Click on it and you will see little boxes on the left side. I think if you click on second box that will enlarge your size chart. Good luck.

Solid compression and good support for the active athlete.

I play in volleyball leagues and am often jumping quite a bit. I was looking for a little support as well as a minor barrier between my knees and the floor. I've used them in probably close to 20+ hours of volleyball already and have loved the support. It's a solid compression and keeps your muscles warm. I've had some minor knee issues but nothing extreme and this is perfect.…

Impressed athlete post ACL reconstruction

Great compression and support for crossfit, rugby, and daily wear. 7 months post ACL reconstruction and very glad to have this on my side. Quality product and easily maintains integrity with multiple washes.

Are these just for athletes? My Dad is 77, and has bad knees that ache, will these help for that?

I am not an athlete, I have a bad knee from osteoarthritis and it does give my knee support.

size 14 should I get a small or medium?

Depends on the use..... if you want it for sports and athletics, I would get the small size for good support... if you want all day relief from normal activities, then go with the medium.

Nice athletic sleeve for the price

It's comfortable and soft to wear for any extended period.

Offers enough support for moderate athletic activity

This sleeve works great. I was diagnosed with runners knee, and a torn meniscus. This sleeve provides enough support when I am running as well as with lateral movement.

PowerLix Athletics Knee Brace Compression.

Fits well and supports well! I liked so much I order 2 additional knee braces!

Excellent athletic knee sleeve!

Amazing product for those if us who may have hurt our knee's , material is thick but stretchy and looks mighty durable. I do crossfit, zumba, pound and workout daily as well as lift, and this has been my go to, unfortunately I need more support now as my knee isnt good; however, I highly reccomend this product, it's not only cute but totally functional, it will be in my gym locker awaiting my arrival again.

Great for athletes

I have many knee compression sleeves however this is the best for me. I have ordered more after I tried for the first time.

One of the better knee braces for athletic performance

I have only used this brace once, but it seems to stabilize my knee quite well to where I can move around and be a little more agile. ‘Be careful to not pull straps too tight cause it will cause a significant amount of discomfort on the back of knee. Good product thus far.

Five Stars

Great support while still flexible enough for athletics.…

True to size

I made this purchase for my daughter who is an athlete with a previous knee injury and it has helped significantly.…

Is this brace good for jumper knees?

I’m not too familiar with Jumper knees. My kneecap does feel like it gets snatched back from a muscle spasm from time to time. I have to wear it because of bad sprains growing up and smashing my kneecap into my knee and also car crash. My meniscus is torn and gets pinched and inflamed. I basically have also a bald spot where there’s no cartilage but the surrounding cartilage so far keeps it from being bone on bone. The brace gives me the support when my knee goes out or is so inflamed I can’t put pressure on it. I’ve had Several Steroid Shots in my knee joint because of inflammation and Arthritis. If you are having trouble with your kneecap going to your shin giving you pain you might also need to look for Athletic compression sleeve that covers the knee part of the thigh but a lot of the Calf muscle and then a brace. I’m not a Physical Therapist but it wouldn’t hurt to ask one but not buy their stuff cause it’ll cost more unless your Insurance will pay for it especially if you need physical therapy. God bless towards in getting better and Good luck I know knee pain can ruin your day.

Great for my minor acl injury

…I'm not using it for a serious injury or for athletic performance, but for my situation it has been exactly what I needed.

rendering it pretty ineffective for a brace

…Well made- and seems like it would do well on a more athletic body.

Great product for a great price

Requires diect contact with your skin to stay in place.

Great Knee Support

…Thanks Ultra Flex Athletics for a great product, and Amazon for your customer service.

The instructions are to measure two different points (knee cap and four inches above it). Which measurement are the sizes based on?

I don't know which measurement is the primary one relied on. I provided both and the UFlex Athletics Knee Brace fit perfectly. This brace stabilized my knee as well as a custom brace my insurance paid for costing hundreds of dollars. That brace chafed my leg when adjusted snug enough to stabilize my knee. I had to cut off the long sleeves of a long sleeve t-shirt to put on under it to prevent the chafing. That combo contributed to sweating. The UFlex Athletics Knee Brace does not contribute to sweating. I guess it breathes better. I'm 165 pounds of medium build and use a large.

High Quality Knee Compression Sleeve

Knee sport brace

Knee brace is new and improved..For athletic/bike ridder's it's a warm-up into rapid walking, jogging, climbing,and daily movements while working outside.Simple wash and wear material..

My understanding is that knee supports and braces are a bad idea because they allow the muscles to weaken in the long run. Is this not true?

Depends. If youre arthritic or such, and these help you walk, you come out ahead. Being stuck on the sofa allows muscles to weaken too. If you're looking at these to begin with, you probably have knee troubles and need something. Keeping yourself moving is important, the part about braces and weakness is about elite athletes more than aging boomers. Youll be fine.

Appear to be great sleeves. I followed the advice of some other ...

…I only really have problems with one knee, but I've found that wearing two gives me greater balance and confidence in my athletics.…

Great Customer Service

I sized up and the sleeve was still too tight for my not-so-athletic leg.…
