Band on thigh squats

When buying new bands, I noticed many advertising their use for squats placing the band above the knees. I've never seen Cathe use the bands like this. It does seem to add something to my squats.
Anyone else have any first hand experience with the effectiveness of a band squat? Thanks.
There is one workout that Cathe does put the loop above the knees while doing
Lateral squats (side steps) while doing OH press, maybe in XTrain.
Also, another one with floor work where she puts in above the knees for a few
Moves on the floor, can't think of that DVD.
