This brace is different from any other brace I have seen. It heats up after you have it on for a little while. I had it on for 15 minutes and could start to feel the heat. This is really comforting when your knee is hurting you do not just need a brace, but the heat will help it feel better so you can complete what you started.
I am not a runner, my daughter is. If I were I cannot think of anything that would make me feel more relief than the heat that comes from this brace. You can use this if you have arthritis, ACL or MCL injuries, tendinitis, meniscus or tendon tears, and a lot more.
Why deal with the pain anymore when this self-heating knee brace fits comfortably and provides extra support and durability. The rare tourmaline self-heating fabric and magnetic technology will have your knee feeling warm, relaxed and feeling great in 60 minutes or less! This technology also enhances blood flow and helps the knee to heal.
The magnets are about 800 gauss strength. However, keep in mind they are specialized magnets that are focused just enough to enhance blood circulation. Many people try to test this by putting a metallic object or another magnet on the other side of the fabric to test the strength, but with these type of magnets, they are focused in a specialized way only for safety with blood circulation in the knee.
This fabric is breathable so it will not make you sweat. It seems ready for years of use so you will not need the other braces anymore. It is really soft and comfortable. It only weighs 4.2 ounces and is 11.4 x 8.7 x 2 inches. It stays in place and does not slip down or up. Because it is so soft it is comfortable to kneel on. Gives great support while still being flexible and will move with you and is not scratchy. Since this is made thin and soft you will not feel like people are watching you, and I could move normally.
It is really easy to put on and take off, even for me since I am a bigger person this sometimes can be difficult but with this product there are no problems.
I received this product to give my honest opinion.
