Total Kneecap Support
- Applies pressure above, below, and on each side of the kneecap
- Extra strong straps apply enhanced pressure while allowing mobility
- No slip Velco® brand ensures kneecap stabilizer will not loosen
Enhanced Fit and Comfort

The Cho-Pat Patellar Stabilizer is constructed in the USA from comfortable fabric-covered neoprene and provides effective relief from acute and chronic pain associated with patellar tendonitis, arthritis, and overuse syndromes. The kneecap stabilizer functions dynamically because it applies constant pressure to the knee joint. The patellar stabilizer has four enclosed firm plastic tubes that act as buttresses around the kneecap to reduce patellar subluxation and degeneration.
People can experience knee pain for a number of reasons including: patellar tendonitis, arthritis, overuse, jumper’s knee, runner’s knee, and weak knees. Patellar tendonitis affects the tendon that connects the shinbone to the kneecap. Patellar tendonitis symptoms begin with pain located in the section of the patellar tendon between the kneecap and the area where the tendon attaches to the shinbone (tibia). It is a painful condition often caused by overuse or poor mechanics that can make it difficult to participate in daily and athletic activities and can be helped significantly by a kneecap stabilizer.

The Cho-Pat Patellar Stabilizer is available in five sizes for a more accurate fit and knee pain relief. When sizing, it is best to measure the circumference at mid-kneecap and to specify whether it is the right or left knee. If you are between sizes, it is suggested that you order the smaller sized kneecap stabilizer.
