Bioskin Hinged KneeSkin
Bioskin Hinged KneeSkin 17 17
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
Medial Collateral Ligament Tear This product was the only hinged knee brace I could find that fit my knee properly, having tried other manufacturers including DonJoy. The main letdown was that the hinge caused some pressure aches on the tops of my calf/side of knee after a full days skiing but this was outweighed by the extra confidence it provided in deep powder and fast on-piste action. The product is well constructed and I would imagine it will continue to help me for years to come (no fraying stitching or material tears) Bottom lineâ¦ if you want to continue skiing/snowboarding with the confidence you had before a ligament knee injury this could well be the brace that works for you too and its pretty well priced too! 17 February 2014
Bioskin hinged Kneeskin I suffer from miniscus problem - the new brace is both comfortable and excellent qualtiy. Wore the brace for 8 hours a day whilst skiing and forgot i had it on - Very comfortable - recommend the range for people with knee problems. 04 February 2014
Snug and secure I bought this brace after a nasty knee injury to add support - both physically and mentally!! It fits snugly but is still soft enough and thin enough not to be bulky or uncomfortable - under ski trousers it is not visible. The hinge is very maneuverable without being in any way slack and I feel a lot stronger and more confident on my knee as a result of wearing it and it really does seem to add stability to my knee. I would recommend this brace. 14 January 2014
A leg to stand on! I wouldn't have had a leg to stand on during my recent trip to TromsÃ¸ and definitely wouldn't have been able to ski without the Bioskin Hinged KneeSkin! Having exploded my knee 40 years ago, losing my meniscus and cruciate ligaments in the process, I've always needed knee support when skiing or walking on ice. The Bioskin Hinged KneeSkin lives up to its name: hinged for flexibility, it is as comfortable as an outer skin yet reliably supportive. It kept my knee in place during both Nordic and downhill skiing, during Spark sledging and everyday excursions to the shops over icy roads. Best of all, it put my mind at ease and kept a smile on my face. 13 January 2014
uncomfortable, slipped and caused chafing around the knee I was recommended this product by someone else who had knee problems and the sales team in Chertsey, after miniscus surgery for the 3rd time on my left knee. I bought medium size for both knees. Nothing wrong with the sales team. However i just returned from skiing a week and gave up wearing it on day3 . It gathered up behind the knees squeezing my skin in the process and left red marks. It also left marks where the hinged side points were. It slipped down gradually during the day and repeated trips to the loo were needed to keep it up! (However i could not get a smaller size on and larger size seemed like it would slip when trying them on in the shop). I tried making it tighter above the knee to hold it up but no real change and just made the skin sorer. Chair lifts were painful behind the knee. Rubbing made the skin sore where it gathered up and so I resorted to an old basic knee support for comfort and warmth for remaining holiday as these made skiing miserable. Sorry but this cost me Â£130 and i cant wear them, I've never complained like this before but be aware they may not work for you either ! 30 December 2013
