Thuasne Rebel Reliever Osteoarthritis Knee Brace

Arthritic joint degeneration can quickly spiral out of control if the pain prevents you from keeping the knee moving. By offloading pressure away from your knee, the Thuasne Rebel Reliever Osteoarthritis Knee Brace prevents pain and discomfort, allowing you to stay active and in control.

What's Included?

Which Size Should I Choose?

To find out which size is best for you, take three measurements and consult the table below:

  1. The circumference of your thigh 15cm above the mid-patella (knee joint).
  2. Your knee width at the centre of the knee.
  3. The circumference of your calf 15cm below the mid patella (knee joint).

Where to take each measurement for your knee
Take each measurement as shown in the diagram

Size Thigh Circumference Knee Width Calf Width
Extra Small 31.75 - 39.3cm 7.6 - 8.9cm 27.9 - 31.75cm
Small 39.3 - 47cm 8.9 - 10.16cm 31.1 - 34.9cm
Medium 47 - 53.3cm 10.16 - 11.43cm 33.65 - 38.1cm
Large 53.3 - 59.7cm 11.43 - 12.7cm 36.1 - 40cm
Extra Large 59.7 - 63.5cm 12.7 - 14cm 38.1 - 43.1cm
XX-Large 63.5 - 71.1cm 14 - 15.25cm 43.1 - 22.8cm

Our Sizing Tips

  • If your measurements do not match up, we recommend choosing the size associated with your largest measurement
  • The brace is meant to be compressive and will feel tight as a result; if you would prefer less tightness, please choose a larger size
  • If you do not have a flexible tape measure, use a piece of string to take your measurements, then measure the string with a ruler
  • If your joints tend to swell, please take this into account before choosing your size

How Do I Fit the Thuasne Rebel Knee Brace?

To fit the Thusane Rebel Knee Brace, the straps must be fastened in a certain order after initial fitting.

  1. Sit on a chair with your knee bent at a slight angle
  2. Fasten the strap directly behind the knee
  3. Fasten the lowermost strap at the mid-calf
  4. Fasten the uppermost strap at the upper thigh
  5. Fasten the final strap directly above the knee
  6. Tighten each strap to the desired degree of tension

Why Use a Knee Brace for Arthritis?

Not only will a knee brace improve your quality of life, enabling you to move freely and without pain, studies have also shown that people who wear a knee brace for two years or more do not require surgery further down the line. The knee brace makes it easier to stay active, which in turn breaks the vicious cycle or further joint degeneration.

Shifts Compressing Forces

Thuasne's Rebel Reliever Support uses Townsend's patented Loadshifter technology. This provides the necessary mechanical leverage to shift compressing forces away from the damaged side of the knee. The brace effectively limits varus or valgus misalignment and redistributes your weight across a broader area of the knee joint to reduce pain.

What is a Stop Kit?

The flexion and extension stop kits that are supplied with this purchase contain one pair of stops for each degree of extension or flexion. The extension stop kit includes a pair of  0°, 5°, 10°, 15°, 20°, 30°, 40° stops, while the flexion stop kit includes a pair of 0°,  30°,  45°, 60°, 75° and 90° stops.

How Do I Fit the Stops?

Fitting the stops correctly can be a bit tricky; follow these steps to ensure it's done correctly.

  1. Twist off the desired stop form the nylon stop tree
  2. Remove the screw on the side of the hinge
  3. Once removed, take out the zero degree stop from the hinge
  4. Insert the replacement stop you wish to use, with the hook end at the top facing forwards
  5. Straighten the brace to full extension to push the stop into place
  6. Reinsert and tighten the screw
  7. Flex the brace several times to ensure the stop is locked properly in position

Anti-Migration Strap Padding

To ensure the knee support stays in the optimal position, anti-migration padding has been used to prevent slipping. Not only does this padding ensure you get the best protection at all times, it also improves comfort levels to make the brace easy to wear for long periods.
