Have been dealing with a torn meniscus for four months. Was not able to do any normal walking activity without pain and limping.. This brace has changed my life. I can walk my dog around the pond, did a six hour trip to an amusement park with the grand kids yesterday - amazing! It is light weight, incredibly adjustable, comfortable. I just went online to buy a second one as a backup and saw they were currently out of stock. I can understand why ;it really has made a difference in my ability to function normally.
