Best support/device to stop patella dislocating at night
« on: March 12, 2014, 12:23:55 PM »
Hi
I am in the UK and am looking for some sort of knee support/strap that will stop my patella subluxing when I roll over in bed at night.  I am waiting to be seen by a specialist on the NHS, but the anxiety of my knee popping out in the night whilst I am waiting to be seen is stopping me sleeping.  I have tried bandaging my knee to keep it ramrod straight, but then I am fixed in one position on my back all night.

Promedics website, half buttress knee brace, ask for one made out of breathable material bit like a tea bag.
Costs about 34.00 pounds. Get a size larger than you measured.
