The Knee Helix provides a moderate level of support to the collateral ligaments, anterior knee, patella and patellar tendon. Ideal for maintenance support of the knee, management of swelling in the knee and knee pain. Perfect for those diagnosed with: runner’s knee, patellar tendonitis, jumper’s knee, patellar instability, patellofemoral pain syndrome, degenerative arthritis, osteoarthritis of the knee, or Osgood Schlatter’s syndrome.
The Knee Helix Compression Sleeve provides a moderate level of support to the lateral ligaments of the knee, the anterior knee, the patella, and the patellar tendon, making it an ideal knee support for treatment of patellar tendonitis and minor sprains, strains, and meniscus injuries.
Body Helix uses the latest advances in fabric science to make straps, wraps, and tape obsolete. The Knee Helix offers support that remains anchored to the skin and firmly in place, even while you lunge, bend and sprint. Our knee support slips on easily, and rests comfortably just below the knee cap, giving support and compression to the entire patella tendon and its attachments, which is shown to be a tremendous help in the treatment of patellar tendonitis. Its unique design eliminates any material directly behind the knee, alleviating the annoying “cutting in” that is present with old straps and bands.
The Knee Helix utilizes Form Fit Technology that allows a comfortable fit and unrestricted motion. The product will not absorb excess water, bacteria, or odors, and can be washed after every wear. Because of the unique design of our product, the material can be worn for hours or miles without the discomfort caused by other braces and sleeves.

Proper fit is important
It is very important to measure your leg at base of the kneecap, just under the knee.
