Excellent product..after going through many different knee support products ..we finally found the right one..(recommended by our friend/coach)Me and my hubby have been using this past 3 years. When we go play basketball ball or when we do exercises such as squats etc it really does the work by supporting the knee.. avoids pain and further damage I do recommend this who has knee probs while playing or doing any sorts of exercise which puts pressure in the knee. Just find ur correct size
Comfortable and reliable. This product keeps my knees intact. Unfortunately I need knee support for both knees and I use these supports for both my knees. The product is durable as well
My knees are "gone". These are SO supportive, can't recommend them too highly. I've got one for each leg
As the title, bought this to aid recovery after a knee surgery, pleased to say it helped in my opinion.
The product is good but a poor review as when i asked there was no informed advice on sizing and hence bought the wrong size. When i returned it to get the right size they had none.
thank you for taking the time to write a review about our MID 500 Knee Ligament Support.
I apologize for your experience in store and I have already been in contact with them to improve this particular aspect of our job and communication.
Also, I've forwarded your review to the Tarmak Brand and it will help us improve the communication on the packages related to how to chose the correct size.
I'm sorry you couldn't find the right size for you, if you get in touch with you closest Decathlon Store we could try to do our best to get it for you or, in alternative, I remind you that you have one full year to return your item and get a refund or exchange it for the right size or a different item.
I checked these in store, the size three isn't big enough, yet the size four that is shown on the back of the packaging od the size three is... so where is the size four?
thanks for leaving a review regarding the Tarmak Mid500 Knee Ligament Support. To answer your question about the sizing we have been facing some production delays on that specific size, but I can confirm that the size 4 will be available in stores and online starting in mid-May.
I want to apologize for any inconvenience this unavailability may have caused.

After 2 days of agony and hobbling around with the aid of a crutch I bit the bullet and bought this product. The result was miraculous! No pain whatsoever except the tightness of the strap, but as the saying goes, no gain without pain. I am very pleased.
Recovering from torn knee ligaments, my knee was swollen but still needed support. The support guard was quite small, considering it was large. I struggled to get it on and then found it to be very uncomfortable around the back of the knee. I’ve only worn it a few times and for me it was a waste of money !
Excellent quality and comfort
Bought for my daughter and she was delighted with it - didn’t slip and her knee felt safe and secure.
I purchased x2 of the Mid 500 Adult Knee brace to give that extra support while skiing (which while writing the review I'm still on the ski trip). I have only need to use one of the knee braces, but I have found it to be very uncomfortable while skiing, due to the support straps crossing and cutting in at the back of the knee. So hence I will not be using the knee support any further during my the rest of my skiing trip. I'll take my chance and hope my knee hold out!
I run 10-12 miles per week... I get periodic pain in my knee, articular cartilage... Bought this brace to give some support when I need it... Not to restrictive and gives my knee the support it needs. Excellent!
Fabric is more comfortable than neoprene knee braces
Does exactly what it says. Stays nice and cool too. Doesn't twist or fall down, remains in place all day
Really good support. I exercise fairly heavy and find it gives good support

Wearing a knee support may be recommended if you have suffered ligament damage, chronic instability, or you are unsure how your knees will hold up when you get back into sport (basketball, football, handball, tennis, running, trail running, gymnastics, judo, skiing) after a sprain.
A sprained knee is when you stretch or tear one or more ligaments in your knee: the medial collateral ligament (MCL), fibular collateral ligament (LCL), the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). Sprains are not a serious problem when the ligaments are just stretched. They become fairly serious when the lateral ligaments alone are torn. Serious sprains are those when one of the cruciate and/or lateral ligaments is torn completely.
Measure around your leg, 8 cm above your kneecap. Then match the measurement taken with the following size chart:Size 1: 36 - 39 cmSize 2: 39 - 43 cmSize 3: 43 - 47 cmSize 4: 47 - 51 cm
The knee is an important joint that is used heavily for sports activities. It absorbs impacts and stabilises you as well as withstanding huge stresses, particularly when running, jumping, landing and changing direction. Falling over when skiing is also particularly risky for your knees.
