If you and your doctor have determined that you can benefit from wearing a knee brace, there are extra large knee braces for a comfortable, secure fit. Whether you're recovering from surgery or trying to mend from or prevent an injury, the support of a knee stabilizer can be very helpful. Most extra large knee braces from brands McDavid and OTC Professional Orthopaedic can fit knees that measure from around 17 to 22 inches in circumference.
Healing and support
The compression and heat retention of extra large knee braces can help ligaments heal, and the structure of the brace can provide support to the joint during activity. Certain knee supports can be used to help prevent strain by keeping the knee supported and in place. Knee support braces include elastic, basic supports or hinged knee braces that offer more stability and support.
