The Adjustable Knee Helix is the ideal full support providing compression and comfort to the knee and collateral ligaments (MCL, LCL) but does not put posterior pressure on the patella. This Body Helix compression wrap is best suited when full support is desired but pressure on the patella is to be avoided because of patellofemoral pain syndrome. Our unique fabric ensures the product will not slip during activity. This Helix is ideal for those diagnosed with: runner’s knee, patellar tendonitis, jumper’s knee, patellar instability, patellofemoral pain syndrome, degenerative arthritis, osteoarthritis of the knee, or Osgood Schlatter’s syndrome.
This Helix is best when you need to avoid pressure on the patella. Such as if you have patello-femoral pain syndrome.
