The Aircast Infrapatellar Band is designed to relieve symptoms of patellofemoral pain and Osgood-Schlatter disease. Worn below the patella, an aircell focuses compression on the patellar tendon and its area of insertion.


Key Benefits:

  • Design similar to the Aircast Pneumatic Armband. Tests show 50% more compression under the aircell than with a conventional band - more support with less constriction.
  • Comfortable. Padded, foam-lined band diffuses pressure on the poples.
  • One Size Fits All

Indications

  • The symptoms of patellalgia
  • "Jumper's Knee"
  • Osgood-Schlatter's disease

Aircast Infrapatellar Band - Black - Universal reviews

publius
First, the thing works well. It is a 90% cure for my patellofemoral pain (classic "theater sign" while seated). I liked the first one so much I stocked up on 4 more. Wear one every single day. The downsides are that the air bag pops relatively quickly. Not too durable. (It's still effective for me even popped, which makes me suspicious that the "air" in aircast is just a gimmick.) Also, the thing is fairly intelligently constructed WRT the velcro closure (hooks face inward and are completely covered by the loops, so it doesn't hook your pants). HOWEVER, the part that holds the air bag itself is made from hook-side velcro, which is bad because as the device gets worn, those hooks inevitably become exposed and will catch on wool or polyester (awesome!) pants. I would give it an 8.5/10 for that, with potential to move to a 9.5 if they really fixed the velcro issues. - publius

I have chondromalacia and pattelofemoral pain syndrome. At first the brace really helped and I was glad I purchased the brace. However, the strap very quickly fell apart even though I took care of it. (I have to wear it for everyday activity) It lasted about four weeks and then was pretty much ruined. Good quick fix, but in the long run I'm going to look into other options and a higher quality brace. - Sam

    • had two popliteus strains-not tears in same year. I know the difference. The knee on the inner side hurts a little when I move a special way-not all the time.

      What brace should I use to play tennis to stabilize and prevent lateral movement. Don't want a very restrictive one which limits movement as I am too slow already at age 55.
    • Hello Ed,
      Thank you for taking the time to email us here at www.betterbraces.com regarding your knee injury and obtaining a brace to play tennis. We offer many knee braces for various conditions. We offer patellofemoral braces to support the knee cap, knee ligament braces to keep the actual knee joint stable, and general knee braces to provide compression and warmth to athletes while playing tennis. Please see your physician to determine which type of brace you need based on your injury/diagnosis and then we'd be happy to recommend a specific one for you. Thank you and have a nice day.

    • My 13 yr old daughter is a competitive swimmer who has been suffering from anterior knee pain for some months. It prevents her from kicking in training due to pain. We have seen a Physio who has given her exercises to perform. The problem seems to be the patella not tracking correctly, common in adolescent girls. Will any of your products assist in elevating the pain so that she can train. Are they suitable for use in the pool?
    • Angela,
      For patellar tacking concerns you may want to consider the DonJoy Lateral J patella Knee Brace or the DonJoy Performer Patella Knee Support. These braces will help with the tracking of the patella as your daughter’s knee goes into flexion and extension. The Patellar bands are designed primarily for Patellar Tendonitis.
      The neoprene braces are designed with the ability to get wet in the ocean or a pool. You want to be sure to rinse completely and hang dry.

    • I play Volleyball and need proper support for my patella, will this hold up in athletic competition that involves diving?
    • I would suggest the DonJoy Cross Strap instead. It doesn't have any buttress sticking out that may get caught up when you dive and bring the strap down. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-cross-strap

    • I am a competitive gymnast and I have osgood saluters disease and it is painful for me to tumble on would this be a good product for me and if not is there a product for me?
    • The Reaction Knee Brace would be better, it would give overall support to the knee cap while taking pressure off of the Patella Tendon.
