I had been having complex knee problems for a while and got my knee diagnosed first by having a knee scans.
My physician recommended I get a support below the patella that could provide type two level lateral support and stability, as well as, both compression and warmth.
After searching online for the best device possible at a great cost. I read the reviews here for other Mcdavid knee brace products here on DME-Direct and visited some other manufacturer sites before relying on the advice of my son-in-law. Based on his advice and these reviews I thought this brace would work for my condition.
I reviewed the sizing and measurement instructions for S, M, L and XL circumferences of the knee. If you stand up straight and use a fabric tape measure you'll do just fine. Sizes seam to be accurate. Know that the sleeve portion of this brace must fit snug to provide compression and effective support. It can take a little bit of time for new brace users to get accustomed to the support and feeling of the neoprene/elastic fabric behind the knee. I have to agree with most reviewers of this product that McDavid is correct in sizing. Average size people will not have and difficulty with this device fitting properly
The new, redesigned McDavid model is awesome. I bought a pair to give both knees support and the cost with shipping was $110 from the manufacturer. The price was much better through DME-Direct - this is a great price for this type of quality construction and level of support. They fit both right and left legs. The sewn-in coiled springs provide lateral and medial support. There is a patella ring with doughnut hole in the front that is padded and keeps patella supported comfortably. Four two-inch wide elastic straps criss-cross in front of the patella and provide additional support. The brace is secured in place by two-inch wide straps that cinch up and fasten in place with thick velcro closure tabs. The device remains in place where I cinch it down, even with a lot of walking and standing up from sitting. I'm not able to enjoy running and tennis activity anymore. The straps are very easy to apply and do not require any instruction.
The stitching and the seams on these braces holds up to continual flexing and pressure on the seams. Stitching is high quality along all of the seams. The fabric is breathable unlike typical neoprene and I do not think its irritating, even when worn for hours at a time. Washing by hand in the sink is the best method of cleaning.
These braces fit underneath most pants or trousers easily.
The bottom line: These devices provide support, improved shock absorption, and moderate realigning of the upper and lower leg for people. They also relieve some of the stress on the ankle and hip joints. I am now able to enjoy walking three miles a day with my wife and I feel my knee pain is now finally gone.
- 425R Provides Great Support - Sizing Accurate
I found that the sizing chart on DME-Direct, as well as on the McDavid site, to be accurate. I measured my knee according to the chart and ended up purchasing an XLarge size. Great brace.
