Hi, depends what you are looking for..... I've just sent for a cho-pat dual action strap and it is indicated for chondromalacia patellae.....Indications:
The Dual Action Knee Strap is indicated for symptomatic relief of patellalgia, Jumper's Knee, Osgood-Schlatter's disease, Runner's Knee (chondromalacia patella)
and Infrapatellar Tendonitis.
The strap applies pressure upon the patellar tendon below the kneecap to stabilize and tighten up the kneecap mechanism.
Improves patellar tracking and elevation and reduces patellar subluxation.
Adds further strengthening to the kneecap mechanism by applying pressure on the tendon above the kneecap.
Reduce the forces of the quadriceps on the patella tendon & erosion of the undersurface of the kneecap due to a possible misalignment of the quadriceps (Q angle).
Now, I have tried different braces and found them too restrictive and applying too much pressure on the patella - so what I looked for was something that would be flexible, not bulky so I could keep trying to do activities.... Hope you find something that will work for you......
Here is a list of chondromalacia braces..... Linds
said the Genutrain Knee Brace created alot of pressure on her patella, so I'm not sure about that product.....http://www.kneesupport.com/chondromalacia/
