  • 1 x BioSkin Knee Support

Which Size Knee Support Is Right for Me?

In order to select the perfect knee support size for you, we recommend measuring the circumference of your leg approximately 18cm above your knee and the circumference of the area 15cm directly below the knee, as demonstrated in the image below.

Once you have this measurement, please consult our sizing chart beneath with your measurements.

How to measure your thigh and calf

Size 18cm Above Knee Circ. 15cm Below Knee Circ.
Extra Small 41 - 46cm 30 - 34m
Small 46 - 51cm 34 - 38cm
Medium 51 - 56cm 38 - 42cm
Large 56 - 64cm 42 - 47cm
Extra Large 64 - 17cm 47 - 53cm
XX-Large 71 - 81cm 53 - 61cm

Our Sizing Tips

  • If you are concerned about tightness, we recommend selecting a size up from the one your measurements recommend
  • If you do not own a tape measure, you can take your measurements with a piece of string, then measure the string with a ruler
  • Please take into account any joint swelling before buying, as this could mean you need a larger size

What If My Measurements Conflict One Another?

If the circumference of your thigh and the circumference of your knee indicate two different sizes, we recommend you select the larger of the two. This is ensures the knee brace you select provides flexibility and stretch without compromising circulation and blood flow.

How Tight Is a BioSkin Standard Knee Support?

Designed to provide compression and a tight, therapeutic fit, the BioSkin Standard Knee Support compresses all the ligaments, tendons and muscles surrounding the knee to prevent instability and failure. Due to it's tight fitting nature, we recommend selecting a size larger than our chart indicates if you are concerned about tightness.

What Is the Benefit of a Tight Fitting Brace?

Unless you have a condition that makes compression dangerous, your brace should fit nice and tight and provide the necessary compression required to speed up blood flow and rehabilitation. Compression increases blood flow to a specific area, meaning wearing a brace will rapidly increase the speed of your recovery.

What Does a Correctly Fitted Bioskin Standard Knee Support Feel Like?

If you've correctly followed our sizing guidelines and you've slipped your brace on, you should feel a gentle level of compression at the top and bottom of your knee. Your patella should be showing through the hole at the centre of the support, allowing you to adjust the strap tightness until comfortable.

How To Correctly Fit Your BioSkin Standard Knee Brace

In order to correctly apply your knee support, please follow the instructions below.

  1. Loosen both Velcro straps
  2. Put your foot and leg through the brace hole and pull it up to the knee area
  3. Ensure your knee cap is placed in the exposed hole at the centre of the brace
  4. Tighten both straps until comfortable, adjusting the placement of the brace where necessary

How Does the Knee Support Enhance Recovery?

The support provides excellent compression to your knee. By improving circulation around the knee, it means that the speed at which the knee will recover is increased. The support also prevents any unwanted patella movement, which ensures that any activity that could prevent the speed at recovery is reduced.

How Does the BioSkin Support Reduce Pain?

During the recovery from knee injuries, stability is crucial to relieving pain. The BioSkin Brace offers lightweight stability to the knee joint, allowing the knee to function more efficiently and naturally which can reduce the pain associated with knee injuries.

How Comfortable Is the BioSkin Knee Support?

It is designed using Ultima material that is strong and tight, providing medical grade compression. This material also has breathable and lightweight properties, helping to improve comfort during use. The fit is also secure because it uses stabilising straps above and below to reduce discomfort.
