Which Size Is Right for Me?

Can I Use the Donjoy Strapilax for Sports?
The elastic strapping makes this support ideal for use while playing sports. When resting, you can wrap up your knee with the strap to increase compression to quickly reduce pain and swelling. Then, when you're back out on the field or court, loosen the strap or take it off entirely for added comfort and mobility as you move.
Using the elastic strapping, you can choose how tightly you wear the Donjoy Strapilax Support. If you're in extreme pain or there's lots of swelling, tighten the strap to increase compression and encourage blood flow. Once your knee then starts to recover, you can then loosen the strap to give yourself more freedom of movement.
Featuring an anatomically contoured knee pad, the Donjoy Strapilax stabilises the patella and improves compression for added pain relief. The pad is equipped with small nubs that massage the area and stimulate blood flow to help reduce swelling and relive pain.
Unlike most leg supports, the Donjoy Strapilax is pleasant and comfy to wear. Made with breathable, soft-knit fibres, the brace doesn't get too hot, sweaty and uncomfortable. In addition, the elastic, anatomic design means the support fits like a glove, so you'll hardly notice you're even wearing it.
Is the Donjoy Support Allergy Friendly?
Yes, made with biocompatible yarn, the Donjoy Support is completely latex and PVC-free. This helps prevent any irritating rashes from appearing on your leg.
New Non-Slip Bands
This version of the Donjoy Strapping Knee Support now features silicone coated bands at the top to hold the support secure when in use during physical activity.
