Knee Support & Arthritis: What You Need To Know
The study, which was published in The Orthopedic Journal of Sports Medicine, was conducted in a hospital in the United Kingdom over the course of 6 months. The findings showed a significant decrease in pain for people who suffer from OA from the continued use of germanium-embedded knee sleeve (the technology that Incrediwear uses to make recovery and pain relief a reality).
Bottom line: The Incrediwear Knee Sleeve is a proven way to manage pain and can be an alternative to surgery for some osteoarthritis patients.
Hi Aloha, great to hear you were able to find relief from your pain. Thank you for sharing your experience.
I’ve had a bum knee for about 12 yrs now. In looking back, I twisted it in early 20’s in first and only ski lesson. I have a feeling that it was compromised and just wasn’t great…however something happened while painting a fence, over 3 days. My ortho called it deep knee bends. Sure wasn’t from going to “A” gym! Fast forward. Been having different injections usuall once a year, for last maybe 8 yrs. Supartz, Monovisic, etc. Latest X-ray shows no cartilage as well as new OA in knee cap in addition to already OA on one side. I was told, next stop is knee replacement. The pain in Sept was so bad I almost cried one night…what to do with the pain?? I was wearing an older Japanese knee support. My neighbor had just had her knee replaced now 9 wks ago. She gave me one of her (3) knee supports and told me to try it. I was skeptical. However, within about 3 hrs, I did feel relief! It only got better. I bought a second one so I can wash as needed. I normally sleep without it (been about 2 weeks now) but depends. I STILL have pain, but less. There are times when I realize I’m walking really well without pain. Standing for too long is tiring as well. Sitting, (car, chair etc.) seems to be the hardest to get up without pain. I hobble and that makes me look like an old woman!! It takes about 10 steps to get over the initial pain. However, I’m able to do MUCH better. I do think that I don’t want to be like this for the rest of my life, so may still go under the knife. I’ll have to see how it goes…BUT, IT’S A HUGE IMPROVEMENT! Thanks to my neighbor and this assist with my pain…it is amazing…
Hi Teresa, please could you send pictures of the problem to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can investigate? Thanks!
On my husbands knee sleeve the stays are on either side of his knee. On mine they are in the back is this normal and why?? $98.00 for my 2 is kind of expensive not to wear.

It was too tight.
I even tried making slits in side… wound up throwing out…☹️☹️☹️
How many hours a day should I wear this for knee osteoarthritis?
I ordered the knee sleeve….is it suppose to be tight? My sleep kinda slips down from my thigh.
