Shields brace 5674 sizing


1. The new Shields buttress, constructed of Medical Grade TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) is an adherent, soft, gel like material. It provides an elastic, flexible, shock absorbing quality that assists in replicating taping the knee. It has the practical advantage of patient application and adjustment.

2. It helps assist in the active relocation of the patella and places the bone in its pain free position.

3. The new buttress is more dynamic, more comfortable and offers the practitioner and patient greater proprioception. The unique molded design offers anatomical contours and easier placement.

4. The Shields brace is designed to position the patella away from the symptomatic contact point no matter the malalignment, which improves tracking in the patellofemoral groove. 5. You place the patella where you want it to be. The buttress, in conjunction with the patellar control straps, holds the patella in place and allows it to move with you.

Very pleased.
I've been continuing to have a lot of pain around my kneecap because I've worn out the cartilage so it hurts when I bend down or take the stairs in my house. I've had injections and had surgery last year but still have had pain when I over exert myself. I've been using this brace now for about a month the pain and the pain is about 75% better. The buttress is very sticky to the touch so it stays in place when I go to fit the brace initially. When I stand up, I make some slight adjustments to the the fit and then I'm ready to walk. This brace hasn't taken all of my pain away but I am able to do a lot more now without pain like I had before. My doctor said I could use this around the house or for hiking / biking so I have been using it everyday. The materials are holding up very well and it hasn't stretched out like my other brace I purchased 6 months ago. Overall, I have to say this has probably helped my knees the most over the last 6 months.

Good Pain Relief
I have been using the Hely & Weber Shields knee braces for 2 months now and it has relieved the pain around my kneecap greatly. I use it at my construction job and it steadies my knee especially when I plant, twist, or squat down. The buttress is the best I've seen so far in this type of brace. Thanks for the fast service.

Great service
There are other braces listed that claim to do the same thing as the Shields brace but are not as good quality wise or performance wise even though they're less money. I have an exceptionally big knee and for me my only gripe was that the opening for my kneecap was not as large. as I was hoping. I have ordered a custom-made one through your company - thank you for addressing my individual needs.

I use my Shields knee brace everyday.
My doctor recommended I use the Shields knee brace for my knee. You can adjust the buttress and position it just the way you want it inside for the best results. I think it fits better than other braces I've used in the past and I would recommend it to other people with pain around their kneecap area.
