I’ve had a lot of people asking me how my knee is doing since surgery in May. While it is better, the truth is it still hurts. I know it will never be the same and that I need to just be thankful for all that I CAN do on it, but it still gets me down sometimes.
I decided to give the new ACE™ Brand Elastic Bandage with ACE™ Brand Clip a try during my running workouts and I am very happy with the results. I know it cannot fix my knee, but it helps alleviate a lot of the pain I was feeling while running. (which means I no longer have to pop the ibuprofen before heading out to run!)
The ACE™ Brand Elastic Bandage is very easy to put on, adjust, and provides just enough compression to help support my knee. The fastener was super easy to attach and the bandage felt very secure the entire time.
I remember the old school versions with the little metal clips and I like this new version much better.
I loved how it was so easy to adjust too. I decided I wanted it a little tighter, so it was just a few easy movements to adjust the fit. It snaps securely in place and doesn’t wiggle/move around.
I usually have a really hard time getting things on correctly, so this video on how to use the clip was a huge help!
I put it to the test while doing some sprints and it passed with flying colors. It didn’t fall off, shift, or cause any issues.
In my opinion, the ACE™ Brand Elastic Bandage is a must have for all active families. Next time I will test it out during a leg circuit of box jumps, plyometrics, and squats to see how it continues to hold up.
And below you can check out the funny new ACE Brand video series featuring Arthur, ACE™ Brand Motivational Sportsgent, talking about how they “fixed the clip”!
