A knee patient told me about the above belt, I was a bit skeptical to his statements against. Since I have problems with the stability and the load (in pain), I tried it with the order. I was very surprised, after a long walk distance I had decided less pain and my knee was stable in itself. Since then I wear it almost every day. The tape can be applied by means of a Velcro band exactly in the right place, and with the proper fixation. Plotting it over a longer time, then there is a lying on the inside round silicone band (with fabric covered) with me bruises on the skin. Evening well creamed was no problem at all. Meanwhile, I was able to convince a number of seniors in my district by this band, after applying all had an easier run.
