Comfortable, does what it is suppose to do ...used for about 10 months. Only complaint is after 10 months of pretty much 10-12 hrs everyday usage,the velcro starts to lose its stick...any ideas on how to clean it up so it maintains the stick?? Also washed them several times which might be some of the problem. Otherwise we are very happy with them!! Just ordered another set of two (one for each knee).

With the aid of this brace I was able to walk hundreds of miles with a cranky knee. I never had a problem beyond a little swelling. The brace was comfortable and became like part of me. But I had borrowed it from a friend. I got home and after adding Israeli dancing and racquetball to my weekly activities, my knee went out. I then began the search for this great brace. Thanks Hely and Weber and thank Painreliever.com for carrying this essential item.
