Hinged Knee Brace for Patellofemoral Pain
At only one millimeter thick, our braces are ultralight compared to the competition.
Our braces feature four-way stretch fabrics so they move when you do.
Highly breathable materials help keep your skin cool and dry all day long.
Hypoallergenic materials mean everyone can wear BioSkin braces.
Bio Skin® supports should be applied to dry skin only. Oils, lotions and/or perspiration activate "SkinLok™" making correctly sized supports seem small and difficult to apply. This response to moisture should not cause confusion with respect to proper sizing. Always dry the body segment thoroughly prior to application. Take the support with both hands and stretch the top and bottom of the brace two to three times. This helps break-in the material.
- 1. Remove the patella strap and loosen any circumferential straps. Start from a sitting position when applying the QLok™ brace. Pull the entire support past the heel. Then, from a standing position, using both hands and with a firm grip, pull and center the support over the patella. After a few minutes of wear the brace will conform to the leg.
- 2. The patella strap is positioned on the lateral side of the patella and the middle hook is attached to the loop on the lateral side of the patella.
- 3. The ends of the patella strap are attached to the medial side, giving the desired medial pull.
Easy Care Instructions
Wash Bio Skin® regularly to prevent body salt and oil build-up that naturally occurs after the product has been worn a few times. Attach the hook to the loop to prevent lint build-up. This will give your Bio Skin® a longer life span.

Superior Stabilization for Patellofemoral Tracking Disorders
ADJUSTABLE PATELLA CONTROL
The Dynamic Traction Strap applies counter pressure on the patella to prevent a variety of tracking disorders. The innovative design increases pressure on the patella as the knee bends.
The hinges are made from an extremely lightweight aluminum and contain an easily adjustable motion control center to limit specific degrees of flexion and extension.
The closed-patella design and elastic straps over the knee provide extra compression to gently seat the patella in the trochlear groove. Tick marks on the strap help the user apply consistent pressure with each use.
