The Kneed IT XM Magnetic Knee Strap gives you a lot of bang for your buck. For around $25, you can relieve aches, pains, and discomforts from common knee ailments. Not only is it great for day-to-day use, it also provides relief during physical activity like playing sports (basketball, baseball, etc…) and running as well.
This brace uses cutting edge magnetic therapy, by leveraging a series of embedded magnets, for added relief and effectiveness. The magnetic therapy works in a few different ways:
The magnets against the skin relax the capillary walls, increasing blood flow to the knee.
The presence of the magnets prevents muscle spasms in the knee.
The magnets interfere with the body’s ability to transmit pain receptors from the pain point to the brain.
Several alternative medicine doctors have recommended magnetic therapy for years and recently, scientific studies are confirming these thoughts and practices to be true. An added benefit of this knee band is that the neoprene and padding material are very comfortable, and allow for adjusting the brace so it fits perfectly on your leg. However, since this is a “one size fits most” model, people with larger legs may need to add additional Velcro or find a different unit.
