Bracesox

Has anyone else used a product called Bracesox? It is an undersleeve that you wear under your brace to protect from chafing, wick away sweat etc.

I'd like to know what others think of this product. I found that it's helpful, but sure wish it came in other colors. It only comes in black.

Hey DM-

I am very interested in this product, but I don't know where I can buy it.  I have been dying because of the heat and the neoprene brace (also now a boot on my foot).  I ITCH terribly and this would help me tons.

Please let me know.

thanks,

I am with Heather, I would love to get one of these if you could tell me where I could find one!

As I am sure with most of us that is my biggest problem is the irritation the brace causes me, I wear a hinged knee brace that has the wheels on the side but it slips on so it gets very tight when my leg swells and very sweaty and uncomfortable so please let me know!!

Thanx Jennie

Heather, Jenny,
Yes, Emily has it  - www.bracesox.com has all the info.
The only down side to them is they only come in one color. However, the benefits outweigh the color thing.
Yes, they also have them for other body parts besides knees, citing Jenny's foot boot.  :D
They do take online orders, I checked in case I can't get my ins to get me a spare. :-/

I've got the cotton one, but I'm thinking of trying the lyrca one due to the sweating thing, you know how that goes. I'd be interested to know what you guys think!

They will even send them around the worldas they were going to send me some here in OZ but so far I haven't ordered any (I get a LOT of yucky rashes form my braces and this was one way to stop the rashes).
