The Patella Brace Has A Dynamic Realignment Mechanism To Relieve Pain As It Tracks The Patella In A Precise Manner. Adjustable, Providing Functional Joint Relief

Due to muscle problems, wear and tear can cause inflammation and pain in the front part of the knee joint. This leads to poor tracking of the patella (knee cap), causing avoidance of activity and further changes in the joint. The Patella Brace provides excellent support and stability.

Patella Brace Improves Anterior (Front) Knee Pain By Promoting Better Patella Tracking

Due to muscle problems, wear and tear can cause inflammation and pain in the front part of the knee joint. This leads to poor tracking of the patella (knee cap), causing avoidance of activity and further changes in the joint. The Patella Brace provides excellent support and stability that doctors and therapists trust with an award winning design and scientific evidence.

The Patella Brace is designed to reduce inflammation and pain in the front of the knee, improving physical activity by increasing patella tracking. This allows less painful motion and makes everyday situations more manageable. Since the patella is freely moving, true bracing requires dynamic stabilization for best results. While there are many cheap braces, when results count, you can rely on the award winning design and scientific evidence of this quality, high performance brace.

Indication for use:

  • Patellofemoral malalignment
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome
  • Patellar osteoarthritis
  • Chondromalacia patellae
  • Chondropathy patellae
  • After patellar tendon injury
  • Following patellar dislocation/subluxation
  • Anterior knee pain after surgery, (e.g. lateral release surgery, total knee replacement)

The patella stabilizer knee brace corrects patellar tracking, reduces pain and promotes healing, optimizes joint mobility and muscle coordination. Problems associated with anterior knee pain have many causes, frequently associated poor coordination and thigh muscle weakness and imbalance. The brace is used with a routine of rehabilitative exercises to promote better outcomes.

When you have anterior knee pain (front of the knee), a common syndrome often diagnosed is patellofemoral pain syndrome. This means you have pain in the front of the knee. The patella normally glides along the front part of the thigh like it is on a track. With anterior knee pain, the patella or knee cap can be displaced outward resulting in pain and difficult motion. This is most pronounced when the knee is slightly bent as the tracking becomes more biomechanically unstable than when it is bent more. So low ranges of knee flexion, about 10 to 30 degrees is where there is poor patella tracking, misalignment, joint stress, and anterior knee pain.

Patellofemoral pain syndrome treatment is usually conservative, targeting symptoms like feeling of the knee locking and pain in the front of the knee when walking up and down stairs and other activities requiring bending of the joint. Treatments often include physical therapy, medications, bracing and taping. Surgery may be considered if these conservative measures fail within several months.

Slight bending of the knee may cause a displacement of the knee cap outward, resulting in stress of the patellofemoral knee joint. This shows the precise tracking afforded by the knee brace when the knee is slightly bent. As there is further bending of the knee, there is continual tracking without over-correction.

The cartilage of the joint is alleviated due to the dynamic realignment bracing mechanism and the pain is relieved. As the the knee is bent further, there is no inward shifting of the patella and it is tracking in a correct manner by the femur bone and the muscles.


A problem with taping is the effects decrease over time. The materials may irritate the leg, reapplications are necessary and slippage is common. The Patellar Knee Brace is a great alternative option; applying an external force that helps counteract patella maltracking.

A 2015 study in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research showed this type of brace to correct patellofemoral instability using weight bearing MRI.

It may be indicated for patellofemoral pain syndromes like chondromalacia patellae, where there is a softening, roughening, or wearing down the cartilage under the kneecap. It can be used after lateral release surgery, retropatellar osteoarthritis, recurrent patella dislocation and misalignment.

Commonly used for patellar subluxation. This condition is sometimes called a trick knee or floating patella/kneecap, where the kneecap moves or dislocates from its normal location.

Patellofemoral stress syndrome is pain in the anterior or front of the knee from abnormal pressure or motion between the patella (kneecap) and the femur (thigh bone). It is often seen in teenagers, athletes, and manual laborers. It can be related to overuse with physical activities that place repeated stress on the knee, like climbing stairs, squatting, running and jogging.

Your doctor can examine your leg and use tests to determine if the pain due to muscle, cartilage or bone problems.

Patella Brace Features

  • The material combines compression, antimigration, and breathability, for better performance and patient comfort
  • Custom level of support and compression which apply additional lateral forces on the patella as the leg bends
  • Flexible uprights contour to accommodate significant lateral offsets
  • Pull tabs for ease of application and a simple pull on design allows correct positioning on the leg

Benefits With The Best Knee Brace For Patella Pain

Helping reduce pain: The brace can help alleviate pain when walking, climbing stairs, sitting down and standing up. This helps break the vicious cycle of pain and avoiding motion.

Being active: With the dynamic realignment system, the patella tracking is the right amount as the knee is bent and extended. This helps not only with daily activities, but with recreational sports like hiking or cycling as well.

Discreet under clothing: If you need to wear the brace on a daily basis, you want something effective, comfortable and as concealed as possible. The brace is very light weight and is worn discreetly under your clothing due to its slim design.

Practical in everyday life: Quick release closures and loops make it easier to put it on and take it off whenever needed. The breathable materials make it comfortable to wear, yet designed for a firm fit to avoid slippage while you move.

Custom fit: Everyone is different so it is imperative for the brace to fit properly and prevent aggravating or painful pressure points. The brace uses hook and loop closures to adjust the fit to your individual requirements.
