For centuries people have believed that copper can help relieve swelling, stiffness and pain. These soft breathable compression supports woven with copper threads help reduce swelling and reduce inflammation. Nylon/spandex/copper. Hand wash.
I purchase for my knee for support since of lately my knee has been slipping out of joint - I am trying to avoid another surgery, (it been a few years since I had arthroscopic surgery). I have wide calves and my thighs are larger. I have been having problems with finding something that would accommodate my leg size either being too tight or rolling down once pulled up. This sleeve did not even come pass my knee fell just below my knee cap. So instead of using it for its intended purpose, I will use it as a calf sleeve. I have the compression needed on my leg, it's not too tight around my ankle and is not too tight around my upper leg. I am wearing it now at work and the feeling is tolerable particularly around where the band stops under my knee. Will see how it goes. Still looking for something that will stay up on my upper thigh without rolling down. I am 5'4, 170lbs, female. I gave this a 3 as mention will be using differently. Depending on your leg type,size I would perhaps recommend
