    Hi @NicolaAB any elasticated support should help. Just search the internet for possible suppliers. In teh meantime I've dwnloaded our booklet an knees and attached it below as I thought it might be useful to have a look through.

    Hope you get something that works

    Hi @NicolaAB - I would highly recommend you visit an independent pharmacy for 2 reasons:

    1: They stock a bigger range than the usual big high street ones

    2: They'll have a consultation room where you can try a few on for fit and comfort

    I have several different sorts myself and they do vary in size from manufacturer to manufacturer and design.

    Hope this helps

    Jon

    Thank you. I got a superb one from pharmacist in France, but bought a lighter one from Boots as not sure if knee was overused at gym, or arthritis starting in other knee. Some people said use light support, some said don’t use any as knee needs to strengthen itself!
