Advanced Ultimate Compression Knee Support
This is a very strong knee support with graduated compression to reduce swelling and stabilise the knee.
- Particularly helpful if there is swelling on the knee as well as weakness due to knee ligament damage where the knee has become a little unstable in side to side movements.
- This is an ideal support for knee osteoarthritis and collateral ligament injuries or weakness, yet it is still relatively light for such a supportive knee brace.

- Wear the Ultimate Performance®Up logo strap highest over the knee just onto the thigh
- Temporarily fasten all four strap ends together with Velcro to secure out of the way
- Carefully pull the support up the leg and make sure the logo sits centred above the knee
- Make sure the central circle sits over the kneecap
- Secure cross-over straps and tension straps as required
- Push out any wrinkles and make sure the edges aren’t tucked over
Cushioned insoles for sport and hiking can also help knee pain from arthritis, such as the NINE TO FIVE Active, PressurePerfect or HealthyStep Hiking Footbed Extra Cushioning.
