What Customers Say:


Instructions for Use:
Please read carefully, both the usage and washing instructions, before using the product.

All Back on Track products should be implemented gradually. To start with, use the product for a maximum of four hours a day for the first 2-3 days. The body then has the opportunity to familiarize itself with the fabric’s effects.

The reason we recommend starting with a maximum of 4 hours use is that some people experience pain in the beginning. In horses and dogs, it manifests itself as a swelling. This is due to the increased blood circulation, which is actually a good indication that the ceramic fabric is taking effect. This initial pain or swelling can occur anywhere from a few to several hours of use. You should then cease using the product any more that day, and instead introducing it carefully and more gradually over the following days.

After the introductory period you should up the usage to a minimum of 8 hours per day, preferably more. After only an hour or so is often perceived a positive effect on tight muscles and stiff joints. More persistent problems may require several days, usually between 10-20, before the desired result is achieved.

After the introductory period of 2-3 days it is important to continue to use the product intensively at least 10, preferably 20 days, before assessing its impact. Since this ceramic fabric reflects more of the body’s heat radiation as you move, the effect is greatest if you wear the product when active. Back on Track also works when resting, even when you sleep.

Continue to use the product according to the routine you develop, or use it for two weeks and then take a break in the third week, this in order to avoid dependency. The sensitivity of this dependency varies from individual to individual. For maximum effect, the ceramic fabric should be in direct contact with the skin (if necessary, a thin cotton cloth inserted between).

Note: Caution is advised during simultaneous use with liniment or similar, since the effect is amplified. Use the product only as directed and consult a doctor if symptoms persist. Do not use during pregnancy.

Specific instructions for use on horses and dogs:

Keep in mind that the effect of Back and Track increases with movement when the body heat increases, so in addition to using pads and blankets in the stables, the horse can also be allowed to move around with the Back on Track products. Especially suitable in this context is Riding Boots, Leg Wraps, Saddle Pads, Exercise Sheets and Blanket/Sheets.

For long term problems, the horse may need to use Back on Track for an extended period. Use the product for two to three weeks and have a break one week, to see if the symptoms persist.

As a preventive measure, Back on Track can be used with regular breaks. Use Back on Track 1 day before and 2 days after exercise and then stop until the next workout. For warm-up, use 1-2 hours before and 2-4 hours after exercise.


Back on Track products can be machine washed up to 86°F or 30°C. Use normal detergents that do not contain bleach or fabric softeners. Air dry only, do NOT tumble dry.

Note: Do not use bleach or fabric softener, or tumble dry. The product should be ironed at a maximum temperature of 122 F The ceramic powder is fused in the fibres of polyester/polypropylene and does not separate when washed. The textile loses efficiency with time and extended use.

The textile is produced in China and consists of 100% polypropylene (PP) with ceramic powder or 50% polyester with ceramic powder and 50% cotton.

    Back on Track Ceramic Knee Brace is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Knee Brace: One of a kind I dislocated my kneecap and tore my ACL about four years ago in a riding accident. I never rehabbed it correctly, just popped it back in place and kept on riding. In the past years I've had tremendous knee pain when doing anything strenuous and have struggled to find a brace that both works, and doesn't make me terribly uncomfortable. I've used Back on Track products for my horse, and figured it might work well for me. My first BoT brace was so mind-blowing I almost cried. The moment I put it on, my knee pain went away. The directions say to start easing yourself into it slowly, and I definitely back that. The first few times I wore it, it became uncomfortable after a couple of hours. Now I can wear it all day if I want to. Do I need to? No. I've gone from needing a knee brace all day every day to only wearing it at night. I don't even need to wear it when I work out anymore. I just put it on before bed and take it off after bed and I don't have any pain anymore. I've bought three of these total, I keep one everywhere I might need it, at home, at my barn, one in my gym bag. I'm convinced that it's not only supporting my knee, but helping it heal. Absolutely love this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product. Just wish it was more secure. This was my second Back on Track product (after purchasing the Human Fleece Blanket). The quality of the material is excellent. I have rheumatoid arthritis which flares up badly in my left knee, so I am glad I purchased this brace to help ease the pain. The product itself works great, I just wish it was more secure. It is better for sitting around the house than it is for riding or long periods of walking. It tends to slide down periodically, even with the strap. Definitely order a size up- I am a chunky 5'2 and 160lbs and the Large fits me. Glad I didnt go with the Medium.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pain Relief Unparalleled I have a tumor in my femur, AVM of the femoral artery, and fragmented/fractured femur (near the where the femur meets the knee). I was in a full leg brace and non-weight baring for quite some time.I decided to give this a shot to see if it could offer some support as I'm making my way back to being weight baring.I don't know exactly what it is, but this brace allows me to function almost normally. I cannot recommend this product enough for riders/people who are sore, have bad joints, replaced joints, sprained/over used etc. I use this product every day as I go to the barn to walk my horse (something which I haven't been able to do in almost 6 months).The ONLY thing is that this product does not fit over pants/under my Dubarry's, however it is only the very bottom that doesn't fit under the boots, and it stretches enough to lift over the top without a problem (without permanently stretching the actual product). I think it'd be great if they could create a compression type "sleeve" type knee brace, too, that would fit with riding breeches/boots. It gave me faith in the BOT products that they are 100% worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product at a great price I bought this for my daughter who suffers from bursitis and tendonitis in her knee. If she walked around a horse show all day, her knee would swell and she would be in pain all night. Now she wears the brace whenever she can and if she wears if at rest, her knee looks completely normal when it comes off, better than it has in years. She says it is almost pain free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! I got this cause my IT band was bothering my knee. great fit- I did go down 1 size plus it has a Velcro movable elastic band over the knee to hold it in place. I run in it, I don't ride in it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used by Olympian, former Modern Pentathlete I run regularly to keep up my condition, as a former elite level pentathlete I had a knee injury and thorn ligaments, needing support for my knee. This product is doing a great job and I'm enjoying its benefits. I only have been using it for about a month, so I'll have to see how it holds up and how much it helps me to be active with as little pain as possible :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for riding, walking, or even sleeping! Unfortunately, I have a terrible knee with arthritis and tendonitis (I need a new knee to tell the truth). I have a very large, clunky knee brace that I wear for really bad days, but it's terrible for sleeping in, or if I want to conceal it under my business attire. While this Back on Track brace doesn't have the same kind of support as my medical brace, I'm absolutely thrilled that I can finally sleep in one! I wear this brace to work (easily hidden under my dress pants), I wear this brace to ride (MUCH better than my bulky robot brace against my saddle), I wear this brace for turnout and long walks, but best of all, I wear this brace to bed. I must say, to those worried about it sliding off, you have to put it on just right. I had such a hard time for a solid week with it slipping until I pulled it up higher. The brace has to be SNUG to not only stay in place, but to provide the kind of basic support and healing you're looking for. I pull it up about a third up my thigh and tighten the strap all the way. There is plenty of flexibility there, so don't worry about it being uncomfortable. It will feel tight at first, but once your knee warms up in a minute, you won't be complaining at all. Overall, this brace is EXACTLY what I dreamed it would be and I'm so happy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not very comfortable These do make my knees feel better but they are not very comfortable. They slide down even with the strap. I wear them if I am just sitting around but they are not very good for riding in which is what I was hoping for.
    Date published: 2015-12-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They help me stay on my feet all day I wear these when I know I am going to be hiking the hills at our ranch. There's a lot of steep terrain. They allow me to go all day no matter what I'm doing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think it works! I've been using this knew brace for about 2 weeks. Back on Track says it takes a while to work and I'm beginning to feel some relief. I may buy one for my other knee because now that one is starting to bother me.
    Date published: 2015-11-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have arthritis in my knee which, unfortunately, is now aggravated by riding my new horse who happens to have a more round barrel. I have had this brace about one month and wear it at the gym, or if I have to be on my feet for long periods of time. I wear it riding, but find it fits best over my FITS summer weight breeches. It is a little bulky to wear over, or under, my FITS regular breeches. Definitely a good product, however.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding knee brace! This brace is offers a super comfortable fit and better support than 2 braces I had been using after my knee injury. I love the fact that the Back on Track Brace is also easy to put on, stays in place and is way less bulkier than others I've used. I don't find my knee and leg sweating like they do in the neoprene braces as well. If you need to wear a knee brace I highly recommend this!
    Date published: 2015-06-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I bought this product to address a rubbing and chafing issue as was getting on the back of my leg just above the knee bend. Problem solved and as an older rider I like the knee support.
    Date published: 2015-04-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I had surgery for my torn ACL and meniscus about 6 weeks ago. I started wearing my Back on Track Brace about 2 weeks after surgery and I absolutely love it. The pain is just about nonexistent, and it gives me the bit of extra support that I need. The swelling was also significantly improved and my range of motion is above normal for this amount of time. I am back lightly riding my horse and could not be happier with how this brace has aided in my improvement. I love and trust these products for myself and my horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results! I got two knee braces for my Dad for Christmas this year. He put them on the next day and had a spring in his step that he hasn't had in years. He said the second day was even better. These braces are not really supportive beyond a light support and are comfortable under clothing. They heat up the joint and make it feel lubricated instead of stiff. He has had sore knees for many years, including a bad muscle tear around a knee that required surgery and 6 weeks on crutches and no weight bearing. I would say if you have chronic knee pain, give them a try.
    Date published: 2015-01-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable enough to wear all day I recently tore ligaments in my knee and lived in a lockable orthotic device for several weeks. Following that device, I still needed some lateral joint support for everyday barn tasks. My BoT knee brace came in on a day where I'd spent all day on my feet--my knee was killing me, and I was about to take painkillers. I decided to try out the BoT brace before taking meds...and ended up not needing to take a single pill that night. I was immediately sold. I recommend this brace to everyone I know who has bad knees. I ride in it, occasionally sleep in it, and have even done my physical therapy in it. My physical therapist thinks it's great, too! Worth every penny. (My horse now has several BoT garments, too!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! I bought one knee brace and used it for a week. It worked so well, I bought another for my other knee and the back brace. They are wonderful products and work very well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat knee brace ever Bought this on the recommendation of a friend. It is light weight and very comfortable and effective. Beats all the knee braces I've tried before, even the prescription ones. This is light enough to wear under breeches, but give all the support I need for riding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality and Works I was surprised with the quality of this brace it is excellent and at such a good price. The brace alone would be great but with the addition of the ceramic material makes it even better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supports well and keeps the knee warm. I am a figure skater and this product was recommended to me. I have only been using it a couple of weeks (4 skating sessions a week). It has made a huge difference in supporting and making my problem knee warm and comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE BOT PRODUCTS I purchased this knee brace a few weeks ago in hopes it would help my knee. I ride almost daily and run a few times a week. I felt like with some minor pain I had occasionally it would be wise to look in to a brace. After researching I decided BOT would be my best choice. I have been wearing it regularly and LOVE IT! I am a huge BOT fan - my husband, dog, horses and now myself all have their products!
    Date published: 2014-04-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I used this quite a lot when I was having some bad knee pain. My knee only felt better when I had the brace on! The brace is very flexible and easy to wear under pants. I would definitely recommend it if you have any knee pain as it will help you to do what you need to do, while increasing bloodflow and, hopefully, helping to heal you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boyfriend stole it and won't take it off! I just received "my" Back on Track Ceramic Knee Brace yesterday. I was explaining to my boyfriend how it works and before I could even open the package he had snagged it, put it on his knee (he's had 2 knee surgeries after a dirt bike accident) and instantly felt some comfort. He said his knee was almost instantly surrounded in warmth followed by a, "I don't think you're getting this one back, good buy honey!" (Or was that goodbye honey?). No joke, he went to bed with it, woke up with it on, went to work with it on.... I guess I better order another one!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very comfortable and less bulky Had a friend that let me use the horse version for a while when I hurt my knee. Really took the swelling out quickly and the low heat was nice. So I ordered the human version :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this knee brace! I have osteoarthritis in my knee.  I started wearing this brace several weeks ago when I ride, and it keeps my knee warm and has made it more comfortable.  It has stretched out some, though, so it does begin to slide down after wearing for several hours. Should I develop arthritis in my other knee, I would definitely order another brace. I love the Back on Track products.
