  • From Betty at 11/17/11 10:16 AM
    • Please explain the term "open popliteal". As I understand, the popliteal area is in the posterior part of the knee. Is there a hole in that area? If so, the picture doesn't show that - it shows a hole in the anterior part of the knee. It would be great to have a picture that demonstrates the "open popliteal" option.
    • Yes Open Popliteal means a hole in the back on the knee brace.

    • Is this good for tennis? I have Illotibial band Syndrome--need somethig more than just a strap.
    • This product is good for Patellofemoral pain not IT Band Syndrome. You may try the Donjoy Cross Strap.
  • From Sandra Barker at 12/10/13 9:46 PM
    • What is the difference / advantages or disadvantages of having the open popliteal vs. the closed one?

      I've had a closed one before and it gets quite uncomfortable when I bend my knee. Would an open one just allow for more flexibility or is there other issues involved?
    • Sandra,
      The open vs closed popliteal is a personal preference. Having it closed will offer a more uniform compression. However, having it closed is uncomfortable for some people (like yourself), in which case an open popliteal would be the best option. Thank you for your question.

    • Hi,
      Is this good for knee's pain during ski?
      Thanks
    • Net
      You can wear this sking, if you have pain in the front of your knee while skiing another option that might work a little better is the Don Joy Reaction Knee Brace:

      http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-reaction-knee-brace
      This brace takes the forces on your knee and dispearses them through the webing of the brace to decrease pain.

    • My daughter uses this brace for Patella tracking disorder and she has the open popliteal. Is there a benefit to the closed popliteal? Also, is there another brace option for her that comes in colors (she's 9)?
    • Thank you for your question. The open vs closed popliteal will be primarily a personal preference. As far as option you could look at the Tru-Pull Lite, which is a little more "fun" looking that the Adjustable Patella. Also, if her patella tracking isn't severe you could look at the Reaction WEB which has several color options.
