after rupturing my ACL twice this has helped a lot when i play football
I purchased the product for a colleague of mine who was suffering from a painful knee, within 24 hours of wearing the
the product he was pain free.
“Excellent knee brace for skiing”
I had a knee operation last year and was nervous about skiing again. Thanks to this brace, I had no problems at all and got my confidence back.
Really comfortable, used for 2 days hard skiing. Service great from Physioroom.
Measuring guidelines not very helpful though - try a couple of sizes. Measurement around my knee suggested a medium but couldn't get it past my calf! Large fitted really well.
Worth the extra couple of quid quality wise to get the Mueller instead of the physioroom own brand. Quality difference was notable!
Had a complicated acl rupture two years ago and was very keen to ski again. This brace gave me the support and confidence to do just that. It is extremely comfortable and supportive but you don't feel that you have scaffolding on your knee.
“Superb knee brace, but!”
As stated in all the reviews this brace is superb and does a brilliant job of supporting the knee and relieving pain, the only issue I can find is the Velcro used on the straps which appears of poor quality I have worn my brace for a few months and now the straps refuse to stay fastened and this seems to relate to the poor standard of Velcro used.
After 3 months of a knee injury getting slightly better then regressing, I was recommended to try a knee brace. Trying to buy on-line was a nightmare as I hadn't a clue which one to go for. Thank goodness I discovered your helpful site and after reading the advice and reviews I went for the Mueller Hg80 - the measuring advice was great (would have gone for large without it as I'm 6ft but it would have been too big!), the product is great and I noticed an improvement immediately after wearing it. Now a few weeks later I'm totally free of the injury but am so grateful to have found something so comfortable that works. Thank you PhysioRoom.
“Wow I can play tennis again”
I have had ops on both knees, and the doctor told me to give up tennis or I would need new knees, but since I used your knee braces I have played all season Tuesdays and Thursdays and then a match every two weeks.
So thank you, Mark.
This product is everything everyone else says it is, and more! In fact it is so good, that it lulls you into a sense of false 'stability', in thinking your knee is closer to 100% than it actually is, which in turn could lead to premature and over zealous exuberance on the pitch/field/court etc!
On a serious note, as soon as you slip it on, you feel the support and quality-instantly. I've bought Mueller before and they've never let me down.
I purchased this item for my husband. He suffers from a severe lateral meniscal tear. As a physio myself I was cautious about which product to buy. This item gave him fantastic support and relief from the acute pain and swelling he suffered from. Would highly recommend this item for any one requiring knee support due to meniscal tear, ligament damage or swelling. This item is easy to apply and very comfortable to wear.
I chose this particular knee brace mueller Hg80 (1) because of the reviews I had read. (2) I had been suffering from bursitis for months and it was ruining my tennis, and the idea of a "kevlar knee" gave me the edge I thought I might need. On the tennis court it gave me the confidence to go for shots I might normally not bother to go for and gave me solid support the whole way through, and when normally after a 2 or 3 hr match I would have a knee like a football, it remained remarkably stable. The next day would usually give me the most problems, but the results were the same, very little swelling and no deep pain. It stays remarkbly dry even on a hot day and as long as you measure your knee correctly no chafing or rubbing I don't even know I have it on very lightweight. It's worth the money.
I just wanted to add an update on my previous review on this product, from 28th Feb 11. 1 year later I am now playing football outfield, with absolutley no problems at all. Great brace and has really helped me get my confidence back. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to get back to playing again.
Very good product. I suffer from a mild arthritis and a dodge right knee, this supported
my knee and kept it warm while skiing, very pleased as I ski every day all day which I
do not think I could have done without the knee support. Excellent product !
After damaging my MCL I bought a hinged knee brace this was no good as I'm a plumber and was clumbersome and uncomfortable when moving around so returned it.
I bought this knee brace and as soon as I put it on I knew it was perfect and after about ten minutes I forgot I had it on and the support was superb, my knee felt more stable than my other knee. I'd been compensating for my injured knee with my good knee taking more weight, I've started feeling pain in that knee as well so I have just bought another to protect that knee from additional strain until I've completed physio.
These supports are ideal and I will be able to use them when I go snowboarding as well as they fit well and don't slip around at all. A high quality product at a reasonable price. These are the best knee supports I've used.
I ordered the the hinged brace at first but the hinge sat on a very painful part of my knee so was really uncomfortable.
The unhinged brace suits me much better giving excellent support.
“Seems to be up to the job”
I ruptured my Patella Tendon in July, and after 11 days in hospital, 6 weeks in a cast and 7 weeks in a leg brace, I finally began my physio. As I have to take it easy with my 'new' knee, my other knee has taken some hammer. After consulting my physio, I opted for this brace. It arrived very quickly and it's a godsend. My knee felt stronger right away and i'm able to walk now, unaided. As it can be used on both knees, when my 'new' one is recovered fully I will be able to use it for mild support. And it's so comfy, i've had it on for hours and now don't notice it. Thanks all at PhysioRoom. 10 out of 10.
I am under going a cartilage problem at the moment with a physio and I brought this product because I needed something to support my knee for my training for Rugby.
What I say is I have a game of 7's and the support was great it gave me the support I needed. It is great to bring me back faster to rugby because I can still train.
I may buy another just for support on my other knee lol
“Great value, great knee support.”
I tore my ACL playing 5 a side football, and have had to op to fix it. I bought this brace so i could get back in to playing 5 a side without worry to much about injury myself again. I play in goal, and played for the first time yesterday in 4 years, and the brace was great. I had no problems with it, its really comfortable, and after a while I didnt even notice I was wearing it. My knee felt really well supported, and after a nervous 5 minutes of will it wont it work, I felt really confident with it and was happy diving around, and basically playing normally again.
