I bought this for my son after he had a stroke. He couldn't walk without crutches because his knee and foot kept giving away on him. He put the brace on and locked the knee he has been walking ever since he put the brace on.
Hi Linda, thank you for the 5 star review. We are happy to hear that the product is working out so great for you. Thank you for being a Vive Health Customer! ~Rebecca, Vive Health CS~
