Actimove Everyday Open Patella Knee Support with Four Stays
Though compression and lateral stays can alleviate pain and instability, pain in the kneecap requires an open patella for pressure relief. The Actimove Everyday Open Patella Knee Support with Four Stays provides compression, support and stability, while the open kneecap relieves patella pressure and helps correct tracking issues.
Please note that this support is ambidextrous, meaning that it can be worn on either the left or right knee.
What Size Should I Choose?
The Actimove Knee Support with Stays is available in four sizes. To determine the correct size for you, measure the circumference of your thigh just above the knee (as illustrated) and refer to the sizing table below.
|Size ||Lower Thigh Circumference |
|Small ||31 - 36cm (12 - 13.5") |
|Medium ||36 - 41cm (14 - 15.5") |
|Large ||41 - 46cm (16 - 17.5") |
|Extra Large ||46 - 52cm (18 - 19.5") |

How Comfortable Is the Everyday Support?
As with all supports in the Actimove Everyday range, this knee brace is designed with soft materials that are easy on the skin after hours of wear. The anatomical shape and breathable materials will allow you to carry out daily tasks in comfort, all while being soothed by constant compression to stimulate circulation. Completely latex-free, this brace is suited to everyday wear during sports and casual activities.
When Should I Use the Actimove Open Patella Knee Brace?
This knee support is designed for use during virtually any activity in which you feel knee pain. This includes general everyday wear, or exercise such as walking or running. As the Actimove Open Patella Support is made with seamless anatomical shape, it is comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
What is the Benefit of Spiral Stays?
After recovering from a knee injury, the joint can often be left with some instability. The lateral spiral stays on each side of this support help to correct this, and can also provide you with more confidence whilst walking or running. The stays aren't rigid enough to make walking more difficult, but instead can guide the knee to proper motion, preventing any inwanted twisting movements.
How Do I Apply the Knee Brace?
This support includes no straps, buckles or adjustments, making it easy to apply in seconds. Simply slip the brace on so that the dark motion-comfort is placed over the patella to enjoy pain-relieving compression immediately. The below image displays the proper application procedure.
Motion-Comfort Zone for Added Comfort
The Actimove Open Patella Compression Knee Brace is designed to provide even compression across the knee, and will move with your body with each step for maximum comfort. To prevent slipping and discomfort during movement, a smooth motion-comfort zone is included in the crease at the back of the knee.
How Durable is the Actimove Knee Brace?
This brace is designed for everyday wear, reinforced to remain effective during hours of daily use. The edges are reinforced to prevent fraying, whilst the seamless design ensures the compression is constant for a long period.
Does This Brace Contain Neoprene or Latex?
No, this brace is made from high-performance material that is both flexible and breathable, ideal for all-day comfort. This material is latex and neoprene-free, perfect for people with sensitive skin.
