We ordered the Bamboo Pro™ Self-Warming Knee Support in XL and just so you know this fits my husband who weight just under 400lbs but he does have more muscular legs then fatty legs. He suffers from Edema from and injury to his leg almost 2 years ago.
A little about my husband's accident. He fell on the ice outside of his job causing a full quad tear in his left leg. The muscle literally ripped right away from the bone. He is still dependent on a cane and has pain in his knee most days. Having this self warming knee support is nice for the days his leg feels a little worse then normal.
To be honest I was a little surprised the Bamboo Pro™ Self-Warming Knee Support even fit because in the past 2 years we have had a hard time finding supports and had to have them custom made. I am going to let our Dr. know about this so he can maybe send other patients to this site who are in need of a support that fits.
My husband only uses this while sitting, not walking as his leg is tapered and as of yet we have not found a support that stays where it needs to be, so he hasn't even tried it while walking but will report back if I can get him to wear it for a day to let me know if it stays put.

What the Healing Tree has to say about their product
Bamboo Pro™ supports contain Bamboo Charcoal Technology that offers self-warming properties. Unlike normal supports, it activates with your body heat to bring restorative warmth to your muscles, cartilage, and joints. Natural heat increases blood circulation, which in turn delivers proteins, nutrients, and oxygen to the affected area. This helps ease discomfort, relieve achy joints due to aging, enhance muscle performance, and recovery.
And if you overheat, bamboo charcoal can fluctuate in temperature to provide cooling relief. Bamboo Pro™ is safe, effective, and easy to use. It can be worn all day and night for long-lasting, natural relief. Over 50,000 supports sold!

Directions for Use:
For best results, wear the Bamboo Pro™ support directly on your skin. The support does not need to be tight or constricting for the bamboo charcoal to activate.
Machine wash in cold water. Dry on gentle cycle, low heat. Bamboo charcoal is high in absorption so to release odors and pollutants it may have absorbed, place the product in sunlight or under a full spectrum light bulb once a month for an hour, or as desired.
How Bamboo Charcoal is made:
We take Bamboo stalks from sustainable forests and fire them in a kiln for up to 1,800 Farenheit for 2 weeks long. This pyrolysis process creates a bamboo charcoal powder known as "Black Diamond". From there, it activates with your body heat for self-warming, natural relief. So by itself, it does nothing. It requires body heat to activate.
