    Comments about Med Spec® Gripper™ 5XL CoolFlex™ Hinged Knee Brace:

    I bought the product based on other positive reviews on the site. If you choose to buy this know that it is sized for big people. Definitely follow the measuring guide on the product details for sizing. For regular off the shelf sizing at my local pharmacy I was sized at a 5xl for this brand designed for larger people I am a 2xl. This product provides more support than a basic sleeve and doesn't roll down the back of the thigh as readily due to the Velcro. The hinges seem rather loose and still don't protect from hyperextension of the joint. This also seems to fit close to the leg and wearing it under slacks and jeans at work gives a small profile that I am wearing a brace. The support this provides is best for walking but if you are looking for support for lateral movement or laying on your side this, even with the hinges, will not support that movement as the hinges have too much give. The best part is, unlike the neoprene sleeve this is adjustable and breathable. In 90° weather it is still dry and in place. Not designed for an extreme workout it will be best suited for everyday walks and getting around. And yes the 5xl was exchanged for 2xl

            A:

            Hi Jane, thank you for your inquiry. To determine what size you will need you will have to measure your knee circumference. To do so, measure around the knee at the middle of the kneecap. The measurement for a 5XL is 26-29". If the measurement at your kneecap is between 26 and 29", then the 5XL should be the right size for you.

        • Q:

          This says it is a 5XL and that the knee should be measured at the center of the kneecap, however it does not say what the measurement should be for the 5XL or any other available size.

          Can someone please provide a sizing chart or guideline?
