SofTec Genu Knee Brace

Having MS has affected the stability in both my knees especially my right leg. It is often painful and difficult to walk. I have not been able to do Pilates or any of the exercises I love for a while. I recently purchased the SofTech Genu and it is amazing. I can walk with stability in my knee and have been able to wear it at a Pilates class. It has changed how I can live my life . Highly recommend.

Back Playing

Great Brace, now I am able to get back out on the golf course and play solid golf again. I can load up my right side again with the knee collapsing. It is a great assistance while also going through rehab for the LCL and PCL tear/strain.

Would recommend this brace to anyone.

SofTech Genu

I bought a pair for my mum, and they allowed her to walk almost normally again.

The consultation and the help of Walid was brilliant.
