I have used other knee sleeves for my knee and currently use the BodyHelix from Dr. Fields. The softer, thinner material does not cause my knee to sweat like the others.

I`m quite surprised with the material and function! I can see much use in athletes attempting to play through musculotendonous issues or those dealing with edema.

I am the proud owner of BodyHelix products for my calves, ankle and thighs. Having suffered a torn calf muscle while playing tennis five years ago, followed by multiple blood clots in the same leg shortly thereafter, I have had circulation issues in both my legs ever since. Calf cramps were a regular occurrence for me when playing tennis and distance running. The Helix I wear on both calves has greatly reduced the discomfort resulting from poor circulation when I am not exercising, and they have eliminated the cramps and proven to increase my endurance when running and playing tennis. When I suffered a high-ankle sprain on the tennis court six months ago, the first thing I did was purchase the full-ankle Helix. This greatly reduced the inflammation from the injury and vastly improved my recovery time, which allowed me to compete in a national tennis tournament just two months later. Lastly, wearing a Helix on both my calves was an absolute necessity, greatly improving my speed and endurance, when running 17 miles in the mountains of Asheville, NC during the 208 mile Blue Ridge Relay two weeks ago. The final miles of my run involved an elevation drop of more than 1200 feet. I never would have been able to suffer the pounding of that decline without wearing BodyHelix.

This is our 4th purchase from Body Helix for 3 different family members who are active and have had injuries. Once the injury occurs we know we need to order a Body Helix for that body part so as we heal we have support in our return to the game. Great product for athletes because you know at some point you will probably have an injury. Don't stop playing, heal and get your Body Helix so you can have the support and protection to not re-injure yourself.
