A patella support is designed to help manage injuries relating to the knee cap. The stabilised patella feature is a buttress or 'donut' which works to keep the knee cap (or patella) in place, whilst the neoprene support offers compression to reduce inflammation and help manage pain. It is also a low profile and discreet patella support which can be worn under loose clothing.
The patella knee support should be worn following the diagnosis of conditions such as chondromalacia patella, meniscal tears and patella maltracking - all knee cap (or patella) related conditions. Due to the compressive nature of neoprene the support can also be worn to help manage mild sprains and strains of the knee as it is this compression which can help to reduce inflammation and enable you to remain mobile for longer.
Firstly the neoprene knee support offers compression to the surrounding areas. Following any injury there is always swelling and inflammation which can be painful and compromise your mobility. It is compression which helps to reduce inflammation and can offer pain relieving benefits which in turn can help with mobility.
The straps of the brace are designed to keep it in place and reduce the risk of it migrating, as it's important that it remains in place to ensure it does the job it's designed to do.
The buttress or 'donut' is designed to be placed over the knee, with the compressive nature of neoprene and the straps ensuring the knee cap remains in place. Certain conditions result in the knee cap actually moving when mobile which can be painful and it is in these cases why a patella knee support is recommended over a standard knee sleeve or brace which offer no specific patella support.
There are a variety of terms used to describe what is essentially the same product. Following a patella based injury diagnosis it's essential that you find a patella knee support as they are designed to focus on keeping the knee cap in place. These types of braces stand out from other knee braces due to the buttress or 'donut' design at the front. It is this raised area which stops the knee cap from moving around and keeps it where it should be. Some designs offer a patella knee strap where the knee cap can be further secured, such as the Formfit® Tracker Knee Brace.
Please note: circumference at mid patella (middle of the knee cap) is required in order to identify the right neoprene knee support.

||Great fit and support. Helps me out when working.|
||The knee support is fantastic. A quality item. However the sizing instructions were inadequate and although changed by them in a phone call the size I felt given was still wrong. I ended up ordering three in total before I was happy. Had to pay to return the two I didn't want though.|
