    I have had this brace for 4 days. I started wearing it a few hours after I got It and about 4 hours in, it started squeaking. It was quiet at first but now it squeaks with every little movement. I like t be support it provides, but I'm not a fan of having to deal with the squeak all day.

    I did not have surgery after tearing the ACL in my left knee in 1999. I wore a custom knee brace for several months until the initial damage was healed and I finished physical therapy.

    Since then, I've relied on the Bioskin Hinged Front Closure brace every day, all day, as recommended by my orthopedist. It gives me confidence to work, walk, garden, and exercise moderately. Wearing it reminds me to avoid athletic movements, as the ACL has been reabsorbed and is no longer there to support me.

    The Bioskin brace is comfortable in most weathers, though I sweat under it on the hottest days. As I've aged, my leg muscles have lost strength and tone, and the ratio between the circumference of my calf and the circumference of my thigh is no longer what it was. So, sizing becomes a little bit difficult.

    However, I generally lead my normal life, and most people are not aware that I wear a brace. I always buy two braces at a time so I can launder one and wear the other. Like shoes, the braces last longer if you alternate wearing them.

    Overall, Bioskins are well made, comfortable, and durable. Most importantly, they provide the support I need to get around independently. As a single working woman living alone at the age of 69, my independence is key to living life the way I want to live it.

    This is my second brace. They are very comfortable to wear. My only complaint would be with the velcro. It holds well for about 10 months before it starts to lose it's grip.

    Thank you for asking.

    This brace is the second one I've had. The first one lasted 2 1/2 years with frequent use. It keeps me pain free and active.

    I will use this company for products like these for the rest of my life. They are high quality products and stand-up people. I had reason to contact their customer care department and they treated me like I was the most important customer they had. The crappy store-bought neoprene brace I bought not only gave me a total rash, but it couldn't hold a candle to the support my BioSkin brace gives me. I wish more than 5 rating stars were available.

    Worth every penny. This has got to be the most comfortable, functional, knee brace made. Highly recommend.

    Started using it to play soccer after surgery for a meniscus tear and partial ACL tear. Works great. Adjusts to your leg with velcro straps on front and back, top and bottom. After 5 minutes of playing I didn't even know I had it on. Highly recommend it!
