The Brace That Provides Immediate and Lasting Pain Relief
Our clinically proven knee brace is designed to relieve pressure and reduce pain.
Most other knee or running braces apply compression on, or around, the patella (kneecap).
But the issue is that your kneecap must be able to glide freely and naturally, without rubbing.
This allows the synovial fluid to lubricate the joint, so that you don’t feel pain.
The truth is that compression based bracing is simply ineffective. Not to mention, current clinical guidance advises against its use for the treatment of PFPS.
Unlike other braces, NuNee is designed to support the natural movement of your patella by
relieving the pressure and promoting healthy joint function.
Because NuNee is not your typical knee brace, clinicians like Dr. Ben Shatto, Physical Therapist (thephysicaltherapyadvisor.com) recommends it for use during patient rehab.
“I’ve found NuNee is very effective
and helps accelerate rehab.”
There are 3 basic components of the NuNee brace…
First, a patella patch is placed directly onto your kneecap. Second, an open patella knee wrap is placed around your knee. And third, the NuNee brace is placed over your patella to relieve pressure.
The application of NuNee may sound complicated, and it’s actually very simple!
Within seconds, you’ll be moving again without pain.
Our NuNee brace gets you back in the game with significant relief right away, while supporting your knee health in the long run.
It’s not uncommon to see the terms Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome and Chondromalacia Patellae (CMP) used interchangeably. They’re both referred to as “Runner’s Knee” , and they’re the primary source of anterior knee pain.
The cause of Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, or CMP, is the overuse of the knee joint from running, jogging, biking, jumping, squatting, hiking, climbing stairs, etc.
Over time, this excessive use of your knee joint wears down the cartilage that sits between your patella (kneecap) and femur (thigh bone). Before you know it, there’s friction between your kneecap and femur bone — like they’re grinding on each other.
This friction, or grinding, is what causes your debilitating pain, burning, and even stiffness in your knee, which ultimately prevents you from doing the activities you love.
The pain of Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome almost always occurs at the front of your knee, just behind your patella (knee cap). And that pain will only continue to increase when you engage in physical activities that require the flexing or aggravating of your knee joint.
Achieving relief from the pain of PFPS can be challenging and frustrating for both active adults and clinicians alike. 40% of all cases go unresolved and over 70% recur over time.
Furthermore, the current clinical guidance does not advise the use of compression based knee braces, wraps or sleeves. Why? Because the research has revealed that they are ineffective.
But anterior knee pain relief doesn’t have to go unresolved….
Our clinically proven NuNee brace works naturally to help address the root cause of your knee pain.
And because of its unique, clinically proven design, the NuNee device allows you to return to the activities you love, with little to no restrictions.
With NuNee, you can once again embrace your love for running, walking, hiking, and sports.
Your days of anterior knee pain are over.
No more sitting on the sidelines reminiscing of when you could move your knees freely without pain.
Our clinically recommended NuNee patella brace will have you back to running, walking, hiking, and squatting in no time.
And the best part, NuNee is backed by clinical studies…
In fact, 89% of clinical study participants experienced an immediate decrease in their pain caused by provocative functional activity such as running, climbing stairs, and squatting.
Amazingly, when NuNee is properly fitted and applied, it can provide immediate relief to
people who are suffering from the debilitating symptoms associated with:
In this case, the anterior knee pain is caused by a degenerative change within the tissue between the patella (kneecap) and femur. It’s also one of the most common causes of knee pain in the United States.
Patellar Tendonitis is often used interchangeably with Tendinopathy, or Patellar Tendionpathy.
It is anterior knee pain caused by inflammation of the patellar tendon that connects the
kneecap (patella) to the shin bone (tibia). Excessive jumping weakens the patellar tendon,
and if left untreated, may lead to tears within that tendon.
It typically occurs in younger male athletes who play volleyball, football, basketball, tennis, or athletic jumping.
Patellofemoral Osteoarthritis, or Patellofemoral arthritis, has become a common diagnosis for millions of Americans with anterior knee pain.
The arthritis usually sets in under the patella (kneecap) and will inflame the trochlear, a channel-like groove in the thigh bone where your kneecap sits.
Patellofemoral Osteoarthritis often causes anterior knee pain that becomes aggravated by climbing up and down stairs, kneeling, immediately standing from a seated position, squatting, hill hiking, etc.
Knee Bursitis is where your bursa (a tiny sac filled with jelly-like fluid that sits near your knee joint) becomes inflamed, causing swelling and pain.
Typically, knee bursitis occurs in people who do a lot of repetitive knee use or kneeling, i.e., icyclists, carpenters, wrestlers, miners, etc.
Note: Only under clinical supervision may NuNee be applied for people who suffer from knee bursitis.
