Product Description

The Body Helix Patella knee support band is the first of its kind for Osgood Schlatter Disease (OSD), providing a targeted compression of the patellar tendon. It's sleek design with no "bulge" over the tendon means it fits easily under knee pads and other compression.

Other braces for OSD utilize straps and bulky material, so they have a "bulge" that hurts when you fall on it. We designed a brace that slips on and stays in place without the need for bulky straps. It’s effective; it’s comfortable; your child will want to wear it. And, you can wash it over and over again. If you have kids, you don’t need to have that wonderful attribute explained.

This Helix is perfect for anyone who suffers from runners knee or patellar femoral pain syndrome. Our runners knee brace is not just for runners; it is ideal for anyone who suffers pain underneath or to the side of their kneecap. If your kneecap does not track correctly or “wobbles”, the targeted pressure of the Patella knee support band can help without the need to constantly tape around your kneecap.

The Patellar knee band support can also provide warmth and support to the patella tendon for those who suffer from jumper’s knee or patellar tendonitis, ensuring that the tendon stays warm while you exercise without the need to wear a sleeve that covers your entire knee joint.

What is the difference in styles?

The Patella Helix is recommended for Osgood-Schlatter Disease, Patellar Femoral Pain Syndrome (runners 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).

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 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 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.

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 just below your kneecap, with your leg straight. Please do not measure your thigh. Please do not measure across 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.

Absolutely love my Patella Helix

Wow, where do I begin? Absolutely love my Patella Helix purchase and plan on ordering another one. I can play pickleball and cycle without those pesky twinges I used to get. Offers a lot of stability for greater endurance. I still use the adjustable open patella helix for running trails.
Great products!! Joanne was right. The new Helix bottle is really nice, more slimline! I do sometimes have trouble getting the Strawberry Margarita powder to mix completely and it tends to settle at the bottom. I’m shaking it pretty long.
Thank you!

The product is fine - but there is no How To page

The link to the “how to” page is bogus

Hello, James

try it you'll like it

Hi Fred , I am a 71 year old tennis player like yourself , been wearing body helix
for over 5 years I must admit I like the older branding " Body Helix " better than
the " X " but thats just me . Looking to get others in my club to try your brand
but hard to promote if you can't show the product to people , perhaps you would
consider a ambassador / play tester for your products . You can contact me at
[****] could provide top rated references if need be .
