- Support for the entire knee without posterior pressure on the patella
- Adjust compression from slight to moderate
- Machine washable
- The Adjustable Knee Helix was developed at the request of medical professionals who found that our Full Knee Helix provided comfort to arthritis sufferers but they were unable to pull the Helix into position because of weakness or joint pain. Athletes have selected the Adjustable Knee Helix finding comfortable support of the femoral and patellar tendons and knee ligaments.
The Adjustable Knee Helix is best suited when full knee compression and support are desired but pressure on the patella is to be avoided because of patellofemoral pain syndrome. Please see our Full Knee Helix if support and compression to the entire knee and stabilization of the patella is desired. Please see our Patella Helix and Knee Helix for compression of the anterior knee specifically.
Similar to the Full Knee Helix (Open), the Adjustable Knee Helix is a full knee compression brace that’s excellent for sprains and injuries including minor sprains to the medial and lateral stabilizing knee ligaments.
Comfort with compression is achieved for minor meniscus, anterior and posterior knee injuries. Posterior pressure is not placed on the patella. If you have had surgery on your knee, either an open or laparoscopic procedure, our Full Knee Helix is advised to provide uniform support to the injured tissues. If you have been advised to use a support with an opening for the patella, the Adjustable Knee Helix and our Full Knee Helix (Open) are ideal.
Adjustable Knee Helix Features
What is the difference in styles?
The Adjustable Knee Helix is shorter than the Full Knee Helix (Open). If support of the the hamstring or calf tendons is desired, please select the Full Knee Helix.
If the Helix is being selected to help with management of arthritis pain, the Adjustable Knee Helix is advised because of ease of placement.

Proper fit is important
It is very important to measure at the knee cap in order to get the proper fit. Please do not measure your thigh.
