This product gives excellent support and is great value for money I bought this for my wife who hs has two major knee operations one being a removal of a patella thirty odd years ago and a triple fracture of her leg 2 years a go which included a double fracture of the plateau of the tibia. We just to do a lot of all year round walking and mountaineering. We had tried ordinary walking supports but my wife had found them ineffective. However this product has given excellent support and confidence for my wife to start doing some serious hill walking again and hopefully in time to get back into the mountains. 05 May 2015

The product was very supportive I have tried a couple of different knee supports to help with my lack of ACL when taking part in sports, this has to be the best I have used. The fit was perfect based on the sizing charts and the performance on the slopes when boarding was amazing, allowing me todo more than I expected to do considering my injury. Would definitely reccommend to others and will be using it post operation to help support my knee in rehab. Great product 13 January 2015
Excellent and just what I need I have been using this product for about 20 years, in other words for longer than I can remember and the one I have just bought is a replacement for the old one. I strongly recommend it if your knee needs a little extra support. 05 January 2015
Performs as described My knee has prevented me from cycling, walking and generally being active. The knee support has enabled me to return to some sort of freedom. It is not a magic bullet but makes quite a difference. 07 July 2014
Confidence to climb During a recent fall in netball match, I suffered a complete tear to my ACL along with damage to my MCL; I am now awaiting reconstructive surgery. Annoyingly, I had a climbing holiday booked for the week following my accident and was prepared to sit crag-side and watch enviously. Before leaving, I decided to buy a hinged knee support to enable me to manage the walk-ins (my surgeon had advised me to walk unaided by crutches and this support provided the stability needed to walk along the uneven surfaces without it 'giving way'). Thanks to this product I was able to manage the walk-ins with a little help from a pair of walking poles on the steeper descents. With a little careful footwork, I was even able to climb whilst wearing the brace. Although I am yet to return to more intense sports, like netball, until post-op, I have been able to continue lead-climbing, both indoors and out, whilst wearing the support. Thanks BioSkin for allowing me to continue my life as ordinarily as possible! :) The material is great and doesn't make your skin all sweaty like some of the neoprene alternatives I have used for previous injuries. The only flaw I would point out is that after a while, the material covering the metal hinge has snagged on the rock and torn. However, I think that this is very sport-specific and would be unlikely to happen in any other situation. Despite this, I am able to continue using the brace and would recommend it to anybody seeking similar support - well worth the money. 29 May 2014
Did the job! I've had 5 knee operations, mainly cartilage, so this was to make sure I did the least amount of damage on my skiing trip. Lasted a weeks skiing and a few falls with no new injuries so am happy with these supports. I bought one for each knee and perhaps would have considered spending even more on the next version up! great to order and collect in store to ensure the product is correct fit before actually paying for it. Great advice from staff over the phone before buying. One slightly annoying point was they ran out of stock and I could only get one in store and had to look elsewhere for the 2nd one. 14 April 2014
