How does it work?

This knee brace has a patented Tri-Axial hinge that allows normal knee movement and the stabilising double upper Velcro straps provide a customised fit for total support and comfort. Its unique non slip strips prevent unwanted movement of the knee brace.

This means your brace doesn't get hot, sweaty and uncomfortable during sports. The outer mechanisms have unique Kevlar protection for extra durability and the inner lining has anti-microbial coating which prevents bacterial growth.

This knee brace comes complete with a mesh laundry bag, which allows gentle machine washing.

Note: The tri-axial hing is set at 180 degrees and does not have a locking mechanism.

My second Mueller brace an while a big improvement on the old neoprene verson which chaffed on the rear seam this has one glaring fault...
When new it is great, really comfy, flexible anf offers great support when skiing and mountain walking/scrambling. After too short a time tough the wrap over front and rear Velcro fastenings jave become so loose that the brace slips down and does't do its job properly.
A real shame as tis initially a great bit of kit! Looking for an alternative now...

“Super support!”

My consultant recommended that I wear this brace to support my ski-ing damaged knee ligament. I have found it light and comfortable, incredibly supportive without being restrictive, it stops any lateral leg movement and twisting which is just what I need, and with the co sultanas ok , I can just about manage to ride my dressage horses whilst wearing it. It has given me so much confidence In being able to carry on almost as normal whilst the ligament mends. An exceptional piece of equipment.

“It really is as comfortable as it claims!”

Reviewed by Sunbeam97

I looked at a lot of different knee braces to support my knee during skiing. I decided upon the Mueller Hg80 Hinged Knee Brace with Kevlar because it claimed to be comfortable over a long period of time.
When I saw it I didn't think anything so robust-looking could possibly be comfortable. I was wrong! I wore it over my thermals, but was worried it would slip during the day. It didn't.
Once it was on, and I hit the slopes, I completely forgot it was there. I am going to buy another one for the other knee!

“Noticeable but in a good way”

Slipped down but didn't stop the brace performing well, didn't get overly sweaty either which is what impressed me the most. Saved my knee big time on one fall (skiing) where it reduced pressure on my mcl. Good knee brace overall but I wouldn't recommend for running.

“Worth trying”

Reviewed by Anonymous

As a 70yrs old man with OA, left hip replaced, left knee nearing replacement, I wanted a knee support for playing golf. I had been using a neoprene support and while this provide some aid it was not good enough for 18 holes. I suffered aches in the calf, thigh and hip muscles. First try with this support was a walk of a couple of miles during which I still got aches in the knee but then, I realised that for the first time in a while I was moving the knee properly. Subsequent use resulted in similar results until the knee adjusted to the use of the brace. I now have a significant reduction in pain golfing and I also finding that when I'm not using it I walk more naturally with less aches.

The only minor issue I have with the brace is that due to lack of flexibility with my knee I find it difficult to slide it back off over my foot. Based upon my experience this brace is worth a try.

Reviewed by John Mc

I used this product for a week skiing and it was excellent. It was the first time I had been skiing since 2 meniscus repairs on my left knee, so I was a bit concerned whether I would be able to cope.

The brace was great, really comfortable to wear and remained in place all day. I'm also planning to use it without the metal inserts for less strenuous walking activity later in the year. Would definitely recommend.

Also suggest making sure you go for the larger size if in any doubt as it's a snug fit.

Works well on my left knee. I have a meniscus injury causing pain on the inside of my knee. I enjoy fell walking and using the brace certainly helps. It avoids any twisting motion at the knee and the result is that much of the pain has gone. And perhaps best of all I no longer limp the next day. However it must be carefully positioned to work well.

This knee support was purchased in readiness for a skiing trip to France. My previous knee support had been good but had become outdated and failed to provide sufficient comfortable assistance in my knee which has no cartilage and no ACL. I am delighted with this hinged knee brace. I felt little pain whilst skiing and there was minimal swelling at the end of each day. I would highly recommend this to others.

On advice from my osteopath, I purchased this item. He had been treating me for a reocurance of a ligament injury. Is easy to use and very comfortable once fitted correctly. I have worn it to play tennis and on long walks with my dog. I am delighted with the support it provides and so far I have not even had the slightest twinge of pain while playing tennis even on hard court surfaces. I have just ordered a second one so that I have support on both knees when skiing. This product really works. Now I understand why so many people have bought it.

“Good Stability”

Reviewed by Skip2chid

There are previous reviews of the Mueller Hg80 that might lead you to believe that even pre-op you can wear this leg brace and carry on almost as before. I found the Hg80 much more stable than the rubber and neoprene options you find on the High Street, but my cricket season is over a month in this year. It is comfortable and the hinge mechanism much better than the one Mr Spok might recommend which pierced the rubber after a couple of weeks. The best feature for me is that I walk now without fear of over extension because the hinge now acts as the break my defunct ACL obviously can't. I'm now in the queue to get my torn meniscus sorted out on the NHS, but would predict I'll be a good candidate for a long term road test on the Mueller Hg 80 as I predict it will be a constant day time companion for months to come and then back on the cricket field and in the gym post op next year !

After undergoing keyhole surgery and a microfracture recovery has been slow. It's been a year since surgery and although I am in the gym 6 days a week building the muscles around my knee I still couldn't move on the tennis court or squash court without pain. With this support I managed to run and move across the tennis court with ease and no pain for the first time in two years. This knee support is like a little miracle. Well worth every penny. Am hoping to now take skiing with me for a pain free holiday on the slopes.

“Well worth it”

I got two of these prior to a recent skiing holiday - an instructor friend of mine said 'better lose 150 on some decent (?) braces than xK on a wasted skiing holiday'; so I took the leap.

I wasn't disappointed with these at all. I spent a good few hours looking online for the most recommended braces for skiing and kept coming back to this one (well at least that was in my price bracket - there are others that are a hell of alot more!) every time.

I spent 6 days on the hill and didn't have a single twinge; they are comfortable, unobtrusive - I'm incredibly impressed!

Only warning would be to make sure you take plenty of time practicing fitting these as they can slip if too loose.

I have basically destroyed my ACL and also damaged my miniscus and I'm due to have an operation to have it all rebuilt. I teach Taekwondo and i'm due to take my next grade soon. I've waited seven years to take my grade and I'm determined not to let my knee stop me for another year. Rehab after op is 6 - 8 months. Specialist told me I could take my grade as long as I have a decent knee support, just no sparring or jumping. I've worn this for a few months and it's excellent. My knee feels strong and it's comfortable to wear which is a bonus. I've managed to carry on teaching my club for the last few months which I probably wouldn't have been able to do without it. I would highly recommend this knee support.

Whilst playing football in 2006 I ruptured my ACL, MCL, Cartilage, Meniscus, Calf, and pretty much everything else in my leg.
Having gone private and had a patella tendon surgery to reconstruct my ACL I was told I would struggle to play any sports again.
I purchased one of these braces, with it being so successful that I am now about to embark on my 3rd Ski Season as a Guide (so a lot of skiing all day every day). Whilst I am at home I play football a minimum of 2 times a week and up to 5 times a week with no issues at all.
I am still on my original brace although will be buying a new one before I set off due to the Velcro losing its tack.

I suffered a full ACL and MCL rupture as well as damage to my PCL plus meniscus damage. This knee brace was a life saver for me and allowed me access to the gym prior to reconstructive surgery. I used it post surgery as well. I have just ordered another knee brace (same model) to assist with gym work/day to day life as I now have further instability and Post Traumatic Osteo Arthritis. For a good all rounder this is an excellent choice, particularly for knee trauma/injury. My original knee brace is still going strong after 5 years, I have just had to order a new one owing to the velcro failing. That is the only fault and it has had a rugged life for the past 5 years.

“Sorry to put the dampners on!”

Reviewed by Peter C

I bought this knee brace after reading the fantastic reviews it has received. I ruptured my right medial ligament last year and wanted to ski without any problems. I have now used the brace on 3 separate skiing holidays. First off it is very comforable and apart from sitting down at lunch I don't notice that I have it on. Second, it has protected the medial ligament and, apart from a couple of twinges, I have been pain free so it has absolutely done the trick. In fact I have felt the muscles on the inside of my leg pulling which means I have been using the muscles and not the ligament to do the work! However, on each skiing holiday my knee has swelled up within a couple of days. I am not sure what the problem is but I was hoping the brace would provide all round support to the knee. I suggest that the manufacturer looks at providing greater stability for the knee cap with future versions.

I snapped my ACL around 4 years ago and had been using a lesser knee support to play with moderate success, i.e. I could play but paid the penalty in knee pain the next day. It got to a stage where I was beginning to think I would either need to give up or get an operation, out of desperation I re-visited the knee brace section and had a look around, I bought the Mueller Hg80 Hinged Knee Brace with Kevlar and have been playing squash 3-4 hours a week for the last month with this. Pain has reduced to a level I have not had for years, swelling has gone down significantly, bonus is the antibacterial treatment which means it just needs to be aired, not continually washed. I would recommend this product.

I bought this brace after a medial meniscus tear last year skiing. The tear fortunately internal and I don't need surgery but I continue to have an aching inner right knee after sport. This was brilliant- as soon as I put it on it provided support, but still gave me flexibility. I have since skied 10+ days using the brace with no problems at all. I get no pain during skiing and no pain after a long day on the piste. This gave me the confidence I needed to push my skiing and knee after my injury.

I was given the run-around by the NHS (of the UK, for the benefit of those international readers) and was finally told in no uncertain terms that my problem was due to a cartilage issue and nothing short of an operation would fix it.

Anyway, the knee brace is fantastic in that it does what it should i.e. support your knee at all times, as the description states, it doen't get hot or sweaty, is slim enough to be worn inside a pair of standard fit jeans (must really be worn next to your skin not on-top of clothing), and most importantly doesn't limit your range of motion meaning you can get on with you life while wearing it
