PRODUCT DETAILS

Product Uses

The Full Knee Helix is our most popular knee compression sleeve, because who hasn’t had a bum knee at some point during their athletic career?  The Full Knee Helix (Open) is designed with an opening for the patella, for those who want all of the benefits of the Full Knee Helix but who do not want any pressure on their kneecap.  It is unmatched in its comfort, making it the hands-down choice for those who need to focus on their sport and not on their knee sleeve.

The Full Knee Helix (Open) is ideal for sprains to the ligaments of your knee joint, meniscus issues, and injuries to the tendons around your knee joint.  It helps to control swelling and supports the structures around your knee while they heal.

The reinforced opening lends support to the sides of the kneecap, helping it to track correctly.  For those who have a minor “wobble” or have been told that their kneecap moves slightly to the side when they bend their knee, this product can help to alleviate that issue.

It provides warmth and support, making it a go-to for arthritis sufferers, especially those who also have degeneration of the cartilage behind the kneecap.  Many arthritis sufferers have found that wearing the Full Knee Helix (Open) for 2-3 hours after exercise enables them to have less pain the following day.

 

What is the difference in styles?

The Full Knee Helix (Open) is recommended for those people who are experiencing pain behind the knee cap or who have been told by their Dr. that they need a brace with an open patella.  It is the same length as the Full Knee Helix, covering the entire joint plus several inches below and above the knee joint.

The Adjustable Knee Helix is recommended for those who need support of the entire knee joint but who do not want coverage over the kneecap, or for those who want support to the entire knee joint but not to the muscles above and below the knee joint.

The Full Knee Helix is ideal for those who want the simplicity of a compression sleeve that slips on.  It covers the entire knee joint, as well as the tendons and muscles for several inches below and above the knee joint.

The Patella Helix is recommended for Osgood-Schlatter Disease, Patellar Femoral Pain Syndrome (runner’s knee), pain behind the kneecap, or patellar tendonitis (jumper’s knee).

The Knee Helix is the helix of choice for those who have a minor meniscus injury or an old meniscus injury, mild arthritis, or patellar tendonitis (jumper’s knee).

If you need more information to help decide which knee Helix is best for you, please read this blog.

 

Proper fit is important

Please measure the circumference of your knee at the center of the kneecap, with your leg straight.  Please do not measure your thigh.  Please do not measure below your kneecap. 

 

Which size should I order if I am in between sizes?  

In general, leaner athletes prefer the smaller size.  All others prefer the larger size.

disappointed

If you have large thighs and calves the knee brace may not work for you. I purchased the largest size and
they compress to much and are extremely uncomfortable. I did also purchase a back support and love it.
Unfortunately Body Helix has a no-return policy attributed to the pandemic which I do not understand or
agree with. Buyer beware!!!!

Needed warm support for a patella tendon injury. The open knee tends to cut into the skin when flexed. Good light support that doesn't ride down. Thanks for making more than one color!

COMPRESSION GUIDE

All our compression products have two options available: Max Compression and Ultra Light. What’s the difference?

MAX COMPRESSION 3.0

MAX Compression is what we are known for. It comes in a variety of colors and is slightly thicker at 3.0mm in thickness. MAX excels in preventive support and active injury management alike.

ULTRA-LIGHT 2.0

Ultra-Light Compression is slightly thinner at 2.0mm in thickness making it perfect for preventative support. Ultra-Light only comes in the marine blue.

Stretch and Elasticity

We refer to this as Form Fit Technology. Body Helix believes the highest quality compression products can only be made with the highest quality material. We use a high-tech material that has more stretch and more elasticity than any other compression products on the market today. It stretches far more than the human body, allowing for full range of motion of any joint on which it is placed. Just as important, it also has far superior elasticity, allowing it to rebound as fast the joint or muscle and ensuring that it will always remain in contact with your body as you move, no matter how quickly and explosively.

Uniform medical-grade compression

Body Helix believes in form and function. Not only must our products look good, they must provide the most effective level of uniform compression for injury prevention and injury management, because we are committed to the science of keeping athletes active and helping them to Move Through It. We offer two levels of medical-grade compression. Our Max Weight firm medical grade 1 compression at 20-30mmHg and our Ultra-Light 2.0 moderate medical-grade 1 compression at 15-20mmHg. The incredible stretch and elasticity of our high-tech material coupled with our moisture activated adherence means that our compression sleeves do not need straps to keep them in place and can provide you with a uniform compression throughout.

Won't slide down

We refer to this as Moisture Activated Adherence. Body Helix believes that the highest quality compression products can only be made using the highest quality material. In the world of compression gear, any movement of the product means distraction from what is most important - focus and performance. Our proprietary material “locks” to your skin with moisture (sweat) ensuring that it will not slip, it will not slide down, it will not move other than to stretch with your body. You will realize just how “locked” it is the first time you wear it, when you need to take it off by folding it down and then easing it off of your body. So, make sure you have it where you want it before you start to sweat! And make sure you fold it down before removing it!

Machine Wash and Dry

Body Helix believes that the highest quality compression products can only be made using the highest quality material. Our high tech material likes to be clean, just like you. The closed cell synthetic rubber does not absorb any odors or bacteria, but the outside material can. So, please wash it frequently - every time you wear it if possible. You can wear it right into the shower and wash it with soap and water, wash it in the sink with soap and water, or put it in the washing machine. And, if you are wearing it regularly, make sure you put it in the dryer on medium heat at least once a week, more if you would like. The more you wash it, the longer it will last. So, please wash it regularly.
