The Bledsoe 20.50 is the first patellofemoral brace to function in flexion, which is where the pain happens.  Between 20° and 50° of knee flexion, the patella is at risk for tracking poorly, subluxation, and dislocation. The Bledsoe 20.50 patellofemoral knee brace dynamically supports and controls the patella through this range of flexion.

The specialized pneumatic buttress begins to tighten immediately as the knee starts to bend, with the strongest stabilizing force felt between 30 and 40 degrees. The Bledsoe 20.50 relaxes tension past 90 degrees and back out into extension again for patella stabilization when it's needed.

Bledsoe 20.50 Patellofemoral Knee Brace Features:

  • Functions dynamically - begins to tighten immediately in flexion.
  • The strongest force is exerted between 30 and 40 degrees.
  • The 20.50 relaxes tension past 90 degrees through extension.
  • Convenient short length, 12 inches (30.5 cm).
  • Custom Extended 14” length available (call to order).
  • Corrects high Q-Angle lateral pull.
  • NEW Magnesium alloy -- 30% lighter than aluminum for comfort.
  • Magnesium frame adds MCL and LCL support for added protection.
  • Adjustable crescent pneumatic pad grips the patella.
  • Controls Medial Tilt, Patellar Baja and other forces.
  • Circumferential straps provide firm correction, keeping the patella in the groove.
  • Cooler than neoprene.
  • Pivoting straps aid in preventing brace migration.
  • Rigid shell performance counters the force of the quads and resists rotation.
  • Improves patellofemoral tracking.
  • Controls patellar subluxation and dislocation.
  • Color for off-the-shelf (OTS) model: Black
  • Available in six sizes XS-XXL- please see our sizing chart tab above for specific measurement guidelines.

Just Started Running Again
I haven't been able to run because of severe pain under my kneecap from dislocating it last year. The brace reduced my pain 70% and now I can finally jog again. It's slow but I can finally jog again without worrying about the stability of my patella. Thank you!

Excellent for Athletes
I have this brace, one for each knee actually, and I love them!! I wear them for when I go surfing (I have about 3 other braces I choose from for daily wear). I suffer from chronic patella subluxing/dislocating and have had both knees reconstructed. I needed a brace that was sturdy enough to handle everything the ocean throws at you and these surpassed anything and everything I could of hoped!! Without these braces I wouldn't be back in the water doing what I love. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Inappropriate review? 
I ordered this for my daughter and she raves about how wonderful this knee brace is. I love that when she gets home from school, she is not complaining about her knee hurting so much. She is constantly going up and down stairs at school and with the pressure not evenly distributed, it was causing her quite a bit of pain. Unfortunately for her it is both knees, and we were only able to afford one brace at this time. I will be ordering the other one as soon as funds allow!

Bledsoe 20.50 for chondromalacia
I have suffered from a really bad case of chondromalacia and have been through all the PT for VMO strengthening, etc. My doctor recommended I try this brace as I had been going to PT for 6 months with no relief. I had tried other braces with typical donuts and such and had not gotten any relief. This product really worked for me. The buttress hooks onto the hinges so when you bend your knee, the buttress pushes down into the outside of your kneecap. I don't have nearly as much pain with stairs and bending down to get pots and pans. While I still don't get down on my hands and knees to play with my 3 year old, I can do a lot more than I used to. I wear mine everyday (have to) and try to wear more loose fitting pants when out in public. This has definitely helped me a lot and I would recommend it.
