Knee Compression Support Uses
The Full Knee Helix (Open) is best suited when full knee compression and support is desired but pressure on the patella is to be avoided because of patellofemoral pain syndrome. Please see our Full Knee Helix if support and compression to the entire knee and stabilisation of the patella is desired.
Similar to the Full Knee Helix, the Full Knee Helix (Open) is a full knee compression brace that’s excellent for sprains and injuries including minor sprains to the medial and lateral stabilising knee ligaments.
Comfort with compression is achieved for minor meniscus, anterior and posterior knee injuries. Posterior pressure is not placed on the patella. If you have had surgery on your knee, either an open or laproscopic procedure, our Full Knee Helix is advised to provide uniform support to the injured tissues. If you have been advised to use a support with an opening for the patella, the Full Knee Helix (Open) is ideal.
Measuring the size of your knee support
It is very important to measure your knee at the knee cap in order to get the proper fit for your knee support. Please do not measure your thigh.
If your measurement is in the middle of two sizes you will want the smaller size if you are a lean or muscular athlete and the larger size if you are not lean or muscular.
