The Active650 Patella Support provides targeted, double layer protection for the tendon and helps hold the kneecap in the correct alignment. Whilst many velcro patella straps simply force the kneecap and tendon back into the knee joint, the Active650 Patella Support uses the correct amount of compression to hold the tissues securely while allowing a full range of movement.We believe that the Active650 Patella Support is the most comfortable and effective patella specific support on the market.
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.

Proper fit is Important
