Product Description

The Body Helix open patella full knee brace for knee pain is our most popular knee compression sleeve. 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 compression knee sleeve for those who need to focus on their sport and not on their knee brace.

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 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 knee 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).

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.

You won’t be disappointed

I wasn’t sold on the knee brace when I touched it. I thought there is little chance this will help my knee but I was wrong. It really is the best knee compression brace sleeve I have ever used. From day one my knee feels great when wearing it. I’m totally sold on it . I’m a happy active painless athlete , thanks to this little sleeve 🙌🙌🙌

This is my second body helix product and I love them both. They have allowed me to keep running through slight muscle injuries. Really great products!!

Alex Fisher
Full Open Helix

Super comfortable during vigorous sport activities. Running, weightlifting, kickball and volleyball can be really hard on the knees. This product gives great support and helps reduce knee strain and swelling from overactivity. I’m young and a big proponent of preventive care for an active lifestyle!
