Summary: The Mueller Max Knee Strap, Black, One Size doesn't look like much, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it works really well. I have an old sports injury that occasionally causes problems, and I have a couple of other knee supporters, but I haven't been happy with them. The neoprene sleeve ones are OK, but make my knee really hot, and they don't provide much support.
Summary: I've had consistent issues with my right knee for several years as my "shallow" knee caps are suceptible to dislocation while playing sports. I decided to try out Mueller's knee strap as the slip-on knee protection didn't work for my condition and tended to make my legs a sweaty mess. So far, so good with the Mueller Max Knee Strap. The price was right and I'm beginning to have more confidence in my knee caps and legs while playing hockey and baseball.
Summary: This has support for the upper and lower part of the knee. It doesn't interfere with my kicks (Kung Fu) at all. Can't even feel it after a while. I only wore it for 2 weeks and then all my knee pain went away so I stopped wearing it. I keep it close by though!
Summary: I think this is the best brace I've bought and I have almost bought them all now. The long bead on the top and bottom make my knee cap move like it should. I wore it for a 12 hr shift at work and had no pain all day. Stays in place very well and very minor chafing on the back of the knee. Definately start here first and you may not have to spend all the money I have already.
Summary: This is a strap and not a brace. It is part string around the finger as a reminder to not overdo it. It is part a comfort to the knee joint that will help to relieve the knee's sense of apprehension. It will support a mild instability. If your expectations run higher than this, you may be disappointed. For me, the strap meets my needs in all of these regards.
Summary: Because I had to wrap the bands so far around my kneecap to make them tight enough, I experience rubbing from the strap when I bend my knee. This product did work with regards to keeping my kneecap in place while running though.
Summary: I work in retail and about three months ago I got a knee injury from kickboxing. It causes my knee to swell up with fluid, and its definitely uncomfortable on a busy Saturday afternoon. I bought this brace in the hopes that it would be less fussy than a larger complete-wrap brace and would take some more impact off the joint. It has been like a dream!!! I can speed walk with ease and don't feel my knee at all after an 8 hour shift.
Summary: I've had knee problems for over 15 years, and I usually wear knee braces while running. These are great. I bought one to try it out last week. It was so good, I bought another one for the other knee today.
