In order to get the most out of your knee brace it is important that you choose the knee brace that suits your unique needs.
If you are looking for a brace to add stability to the knee due to a partially torn ligament or any ligamentous instabilities you may want to choose a derotational brace such as the Breg Fusion. The Fusion comes in both a mens model and a womens model to accommodate the differences between the contours of the legs of men and women. This ensures a great fit.
If you are looking for a brace to reduce the pain of a kneecap that doesn’t track properly you would want to look into a patella stabilizing knee brace such as the Bauerfeind GenuTrain P3 Knee Brace. This brace utilizes two integral massage pads and an adjustable corrective strap to hold the kneecap securely in a natural, central position.
If you are looking for a brace to relieve the pain associated with osteoarthritis an OA unloader may be the brace for you. These braces exert a force on the opposite side of the knee than the pain is on. Example: If you have medial knee arthritis pain, the brace exerts a force on the lateral side of the knee reducing compression in the medial portion of the knee. The Breg Fusion OA Plus Osteoarthritis Knee Brace is an example of an excellent OA unloader (comes in both mens and womens models).
