The Company Behind The Product
Before we get into the details on how it works and the pros and cons, we wanted to talk a bit about the company behind this product. The company, ProBand, was created back in 1992 and their primary goal has always been about developing products to relieve pain and to help people avoid RSIs (repetitive stress injuries) when it comes to the knees, ankles and forearms. Their products have a unique purpose, which is the absorb the shock that your body parts takes on a regular basis and to help you get rid of your pain. All of their products were designed by the well known and respected Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Donald Fareed. For more information on him, visit the doctor’s profile at Proband.
How Does It Work and What Do We Think About It?
The primary purpose of the Kneed-It band is to provide relief for minor knee pain caused by tendinitis, chondromalacia as well as arthritis. It does this by putting pressure on the lateral and medial soft tissues of your knees. How does that help? It provides relief by absorbing lot of the pressure and stress that are placed on your knees during physical activity and provides warmth to the tissue in the forward/front portion of the knee.
This version of the band takes things a step further. This version uses 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 now and recently there have been more studies confirming its validity. Regardless of whether you believe it in or not, this brace still does a great job at keeping the pain at bay. One of the things we love about this knee band is that the neoprene and padding material are extremely comfortable and you can adjust it to fit pretty much any leg and activity you are doing. The only problem is that it is a “one size fits most” model, so people with larger legs may need to add additional Velcro or find something else that works similarly.
