I have been using this brace for over 2 years now, this was a replacement for the original that wore out after daily use. I have had several surgeries and my replacing 3 of the main ligaments in my knee after a fall. The MCL did not heal right after 2 attempts so I wear the brace 24/7. It is comfortable, supportive and flexible allowing me to go about life as normal.
I am scheduled to have my knee replaced due to injury. In the mean time, the brace helps me to walk.
I can't say anything bad about the quality and construction of this brace hence the 5 star rating. The company had it for a very reasonable price compared to local sales outlets. The shipping could have been a little faster. All that being said, I tried to use the brace to help with some severe arthritic knee pain and it didn't help much if at all.
This is the second MedSpec knee brace I've owned. I've had others of this type but the gripper piece in the back really helps keep the brace from sliding. No matter the temperature or activity, for me mostly Golf, Pickleball. I've only worn this a few times but I can feel the difference of the Cool Flex when playing.
