Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Winning and losing is all about decisions, often ones you've made for your athletes before a scoreboard ever lights up. The difference is in the training; you know it. And we know it, too.
We're McDavid. And this is our collection of precision sports medicine machinery for 2004. You won't find anything like it in the industry, because we don't believe in me-too products or one-size-fits-all solutions.
Ever since our first product, the lateral knee brace, came into play in 1969, we recognized the reality that you live on a daily basis. Namely, that no two athletes have the same needs as you help them push their bodies to the limits of performance. Likewise, no two sports assault your athletes with the same set of dynamic forces.
Our focus is on sport specific and need-specific solutions that help your athletes prevail - whether it's against the yardstick, the stopwatch or the scoreboard.
Ours is a company based on a practiced research and development machine. We listen to the athletes. We study cutting edge technologies and we test our solutions rigorously.
From protection to prevention and even rehabilitation, our goal is to be a key contributor to your bench strength.

Product Description

'One Size Fits All' knee support for knee ligament and cartilage injuries. The wraparound neoprene design has supportive steel springs to provide good support. How does it work? The McDavid Adjustable Patella Knee Support improves knee stability due to the reinforcement provided by the supportive steel springs that strengthen the brace on either side of the knee joint; and the supporting buttress around the kneecap. The wraparound design makes it easy to put on and take off. The neoprene provides soothing heat and compression which relieves knee pain and knee swelling. The combination of stability, compression and warmth make this knee race equally suitable for knee ligament and cartilage injuries. When can I use it? - Ideal for improving knee stability following medial or lateral knee ligament injuries. - Provides stability, support and reassurance following meniscal (cartilage) knee surgery. Which size do I need? Fits left or right knee. One size fits most.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exercise your options and your knees. 1 April 2009
This is a good support for exercising in, but not for all day use; the integral stays on the outside of the leg rub a sore spot if it's left on all day; for all day use I find the tubular neoprene type better. If you're considering buying one of these, my advice is to see a sports physiotherapist, and/or buy a book called "Treat your own Knees" by Jim Johnson. It's a short book, tells you everything you need to know to improve "strength, flexibility, responsiveness and endurance" and no bull. It's also referenced if you want to check the original papers he quotes in the text. In fact do all you can to get this book, it contains vital information that may mean you no longer need to consider surgery, or will aid your recovery from surgery.
The combination of the physical support given by the support and the informational support of the book gave me the confidence to start exercising (gently) a painful knee when advised to rest it. Resting it made it worse, exercising it following the regime in the book, and wearing a knee support, has improved it quite substantially.

5.0 out of 5 stars saved my Knee 20 Dec 2008
I was getting a very painful knee after refereeing games of Rugby. This has cured that - still need to go to the doctor some time soon but this strap is a great help. Very adjustable and comfortable to wear.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good strong support 2 April 2009
I brought this support as during training for a half marathon my knee started to hurt, knowing if I went to the doctor my knee would not be running ready in time I opted for a support to get me through.

This support held my knee very well, it's a good strong support and it held in place for the whole marathon, it did not slip and once on I did not feel any need for adjustment and it felt like it was doing its job and holding my knee in place with a good amount of pressure!

This is not a long term solution for problems like mine and I have since been to the doctor to get it fixed properly, but the support did do the job I brought if for and I was very happy with the results.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite Decent 21 May 2009
I have had reconstructive knee surgery and need some support form time to time. This provides al the support needed. It's fully adjustable all over and will fit any one. Please be careful not to wear it for to long as the stitching inside on one area can get irritating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mc david adjustale patella knee support 31 Mar 2011
By sjoseph
Verified Purchase
I bought this knee brace because i suffer from chrondromalacia patella and was desperate because i was in pain.

PROS while wearing it I experienced a lot less pain around my knee cap. It was easy to put on and take off. It doesnt require an instruction leaflet to put it on. It is comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

CONS the knee support is very bulky and cannot be worn discreetly under tight jeans or trousers. It needs to strapped on quite tightly or it has a tendancy to slowly slip down and aggravate the knee cap.

I am currently using some prescribed GENUMEDI knee supports which are a lot less bulky but i have to keep pulling them up as they are elasticated and not up held up by straps like the Mc david support.

If you feel your knees need support while walking up stairs or just walking, then this product will provide some relief.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knee Support / Meniscus Tear 30 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase
Bought a McDavids Support, my knee was very painful, this support allowed me back on my feet,
I still had to goto the Doctors, the support by it's self isn't the answer,
I found that if you wore it for a good while and by this I mean most of the day, you began to develop a sweat rash.
However to be able to wear a support all day says allot for the McDavids.
All in all a very comfortable support, very effective in that it supports your knee.
Had a little loss of muscle around knee due to the support, but this is common and not to series.
Money well spent.
