  1. Wraparound knee support. Lightweight, it offers comfort and compression and preserves full range of motion for weakened, injured, or arthritic knees.
  1. Cho pat dual action knee strap. Steady pressure above and below the kneecap to relieve pain and promote healing of weak knees, and at the same time preserve mobility. Enhanced patellar tracking and elevation, decreased patellar subluxation, and decreased quadriceps misalignment (which can cause the surface under the kneecap to erode).

Additionally, it slightly raises the kneecap, relieving damaging pressure.
