    'i tried various knee supports from various pharmacies but find the old style "tuba grip" the best for me.

    Breathable and washable and more flexible.

    Hope this helps

    Take care

    Hi I have just bought myself a bamboo knee support from Amazon. It has really helped when I have been exercising and going up and down steps ! Read some good reviews about them as well.

    Hello @Brads27,

    Not all knee braces are equal so my advice would be to visit a pharmacy with a consultation room so you can try a few on for size and comfort. They vary from fairly basic elasticated ones to far sturdier models with velcro straps and hinges either side of the knee and full leg-length jobbies which are like something out of The Transformers movies. You may find applying a few gels will help with stiffness and flexibility too, I use FlexiSeq gel, Capsaicin cream and high strength Voltorol gel and the knee supports prevent trousers from getting gunky. If you're playing Bowls I imagine yours will be white so that's a consideration too I'm guessing.
