Actimove KIDS Knee Support for Children

Children love to be on the go, whether that means running in the playground or flying about on their scooter with friends. The Actimove KIDS Knee Support for Children allows them to recover from knee injuries faster by providing therapeutic warmth and compression to help relieve swelling and pain.

  • 1 x Knee Support

Please note, this support is ambidextrous and can be worn on either the left or right knee.

How Does the Actimove KIDS Knee Support Work?

Kids love to play, run and be as active as possible even when they're recovering from an injury. The Actimove Children's Knee Support is made for parents looking to get their child back on their feet after a knee injury.

Perfect for football, running in the playground and general wear throughout the day when instability and weakness are a common complaint, the Actimove Children's Knee Support is inobtrusive, soft and comfortable to wear.

Sizing Information for the Actimove KIDS Knee Support

This knee brace is available in two sizes designed to fit children between the ages of six and twelve years old. To determine which size is right for your child, simply take a fabric tape measure and measure the circumference of their thigh 15cm above their patella.

Once you have this measurement, simply refer to the sizing table below. Ensure there is a slight bend to the knee during sizing, as shown below.

Sizing of the Actimove Children's Knee Brace

Size Thigh Circumference
Paediatric (Age 6 -7) 25 - 30.5cm (9.8 - 12")
Youth (Age 8 - 12) 30.5 - 35.5cm (12 - 14")

Our Sizing Tips and Tricks

  • Ensure your child understands their brace is designed to fit snugly to provide compression
  • Apply brace for a few hours at a time to get your child to continuous wear
  • Adjust the brace until the patella hole is positioned over the kneecap
  • Measuring the thigh is the most accurate way to select the right brace for your child
  • If their measurement falls on the sizing boundary, select the larger of the two sizes for a comfortable fit

How Do I Apply the Paediatric Knee Brace?

This support includes no straps, buckles or adjustments, so it's simple to apply in seconds. Simply slip the brace on so that the open knee zone is placed directly over the patella, and your child will be enjoying pain-relieving compression immediately. The image below shows the proper application procedure.

When Should a Child Wear a Knee Brace?

If your child is regularly complaining on knee pain, discomfort or instability, it's worth getting them assessed to see if a knee brace could help. If this sounds familiar, the Actimove KIDS Knee Sleeve is an inexpensive, lightweight solution that provides support and stability so they can stay active in a pain-free manner.

What Can a Knee Brace Help a Child With?

We know you want your child to remain as active as possible, for as long as possible. The Actimove KIDS Knee Brace is perfect for preventing further issues and complications following an injury.

It's ideal for children who like to:

  • Run
  • Play Football 
  • Reduce Pain in the Classroom
  • P.E
  • Bike
  • Play Netball or Basketball
  • Walk In a Pain-free Manner
  • Climb

How Tight Is the Children's Knee Support?

As it's intended to provide compression, the Actimove Kids Knee Support fits tightly around the lower thigh and patella. If you have correctly followed our sizing guidance above, your child's brace should provide support and compression without compromising on comfort.

As with all paediatric and child products, we recommend having a discussion with your child as to the benefits of a correctly tight fitted brace.

What Are the Benefits of a Compressive Fit?

Compression is the name of the game when it comes to knee braces. A snug fit means that ligaments and tendons are being drawn toward the centre of the knee, preventing them drifting outward and causing fatigue and instability.

Who Should Use the Actimove Children's Compression Knee Support?

This knee brace is designed to provide a compressive effect that will relieve pain associated with many common knee conditions in children. In particular, this support is suitable for:

  • Chondromalacia
  • Contusions
  • Injury Prevention
  • Knee Contusions
  • Minor Meniscal Injuries
  • Painful Knee Injuries
  • Patella Pain
  • Slight Strains and Sprains
  • Swelling

How Does This Knee Brace Reduce Pain?

By providing compression and warmth to your child's knee, this support will help to control any pain and swelling associated with all sorts of common knee injuries. The compression and warmth will also serve to promote circulation in the joint, helping the body to provide nutrients to the area to quicken the healing process.

What Is the Purpose of the Open Patella?

This knee support features an open-knee design, which makes it particularly suited to acute injuries involving the knee cap. This design will relieve pressure on the patella, and also helps to provide some added stability for patellar tracking issues.

How Breathable is the Actimove Children's Knee Brace?

To help this brace stay comfortable during all the activity your child gets up to, it's lined with Actimove's specially designed COOLMAX AIR material. This material allows cooling air to flow between the child's skin and the support, which helps to prevent the build-up of sweat and moisture that can lead to friction, abrasion and discomfort. With flexible and moisture-wicking materials, this support will be comfortable for your child to wear for hours on end.

How Comfortable is This Knee Support?

As ensuring compliance can be particularly difficult with children, Actimove design their range of supports for kids with anatomical shapes and particularly soft materials. Once applied, this brace won't provide any irritation to your child's skin, and will help to reduce their pain while promoting healing and contributing to the avoidance of re-injury.

Soft and breathable materials of the Actimove Children's Knee Support

Does This Brace Contain Latex or Neoprene?

No, this brace is made with Actimove's specially-designed cotton-free material which is completely neoprene-free and latex-free. As latex and neoprene will frequently cause irritation, this support is ideal for those with sensitive skin.
