Obesity and Knee Pain

What is the difference between Active650 Knee Supports and conventional knee braces?

Active650 extra large Knee supports for larger legs and fat legs.

Most supports are made from material with very limited stretch which is why they slip and roll down or are stiff and restrictive and often need Velcro straps to fit.

Our material is a high stretch fabric, which is shaped to contour to the body: fitting comfortably to provide superior cushioning and support.

Obesity and Knee Pain

Knee braces for overweight and obese legs with knee arthritisKnee pain from arthritis, bariatric knee support

Customers often ask us if our Full Knee Supports fit "larger legs".  This is something that is to be expected as:

  1. Figures show that 2/3 of adults in the UK are either overweight or obese
  2. The vast majority of knee supports are designed for sports injuries and sold to athletes

Studies have shown an association between obesity and knee pain, with increasing weight leading to an increased risk of pain and disability.  Such is the link that obesity has been described as the "primary risk factor" for knee osteoarthritis.

The most effective management to decrease the pain and symptoms of osteoarthritis is a combination of weight loss and increased activity.
