Maybe you should look into buying a Robo suit like the 'LegX'

Cost is only $6K+

Got back from Florida yesterday and was wearing one of my casual ones walking down the beach. Learned wearing it left a rather interesting set of tan lines on the leg. Thought of switching over to the left leg so they matched somewhat. But then all the other old geezers had on braces also.
I wear elastic knee braces, both knees and have had my tan lines commented on several times.

Yep, My right Butt cheek is so sore from scooting around on it haha.
Amazing what you can do when you have too..
Thankfully Most of my jobs are cabinet jobs right now. With help I can still spray doors in my shop etc.. Just have to budget alot more time to get going in the morning

Amazing! Haha. Too bad Blue Cross only covers about $500 for knee braces. Man you would be a high rolling painter with a set of those..
