Targeted support for active knees
How can something so small provide such great support?
The answer is that it targets the knee joint.
It might look as if it sits under the knee but it is carefully designed to sit just under the kneecap. In this position it is perfectly placed to provide support to the hinged joint that forms the knee and all associated structures within it.
Reducing the amount of fabric whilst still providing effective protection for the knee joint means the Active650 Knee Support is a lightweight support that can be worn with maximum comfort for longer periods, even in the most demanding of environments.
The Knee Support is designed for:
- Ligament injuries – Grade 1
- Meniscal damage – cartilage tears
- Patella Tendinitis – Jumper’s Knee
- Mild Osteoarthritis – the most common type of degenerative disease affecting the knee
- Non-specific knee pain

Hold it if it Hurts!
Whether it’s a bump, a strain, a muscle tear or even a broken bone, what is the first thing you do when you hurt yourself?
You immediately grab hold of the bit that hurts. The management of the injury over the next hours, days and weeks may well differ but everyone’s initial reaction to pain is the same: clutch it, cradle it, hold it.
Why is this?
Quite simply, we don’t know. Theories range from affecting the pain receptors to providing a tourniquet-like effect for nerves and blood vessels to isolating the damaged structures and preventing further movement.
Whatever the reason is, we all do it.
Clearly, it would be impossible to spend all day holding your injury, which is why we at Active650 have come up with a range of super-comfortable supports that clutch, cradle and hold for you.
You get on with your life while Active 650 holds the bit that hurts!
Our Different Finishes Explained
Metallic has a smooth, metallic finish ideal for non-contact sports such as football, cricket, tennis, badminton, squash, cycling, swimming, running, triathlon, hockey etc.
MegaStretch has a more robust, tougher finish suited for contact sports and high abrasion use such as rugby, American football, Australian rules football, boxing, MMA, motocross.
Both fabrics provide the same excellent benefits – the examples of appropriate uses is merely a suggestion. It comes down to personal preference.
Proper fit is Important
Please measure the circumference immediately under your patella (kneecap), with a straight leg.
