You can find it everywhere. Walgreens, Rite-aide, Amazon, Medical Supply stores, REI, Running stores, Any sporting goods store.

It's a common piece of equipment which often corrects Patellar Tracking problems in many people, if they experience pain behind their kneecaps when bending their knees. Depends on the kind of tracking issue (whether up and down vs. right and left.).

The real way to deal with those issues is through physical therapy where they will have you strengthen the muscles adjacent to the patella. If you have an imbalance in musculature (muscle strong on one side/weak on the other) the knee cap will be pulled out of place during some movements, causing the kneecap to scrape on the ends of the leg bones.

Try it to relieve pain temporarily, but see a professional to strengthen the weak link muscle in the patellar/femoral area for a real fix, and get educated on your body mechanics for a permanent fix (gait, leaning, sitting habits, posture, etc).
