It is designed to provide symptomatic pain relief of patellofemoral dysfunction including lateral subluxation/dislocation, lateral mal-tracking and patellar tendonitis.
When can I use it?

How does it work?
This Donjoy knee brace is technologically advanced for the treatment of kneecap problems. It exerts sideways pressure on the kneecap using an 'Elastomeric' pull device that is fixed with Velcro straps. The brace also features a movable, trimmable buttress that sits inside the brace against the side of the kneecap to control kneecap movement.
This physical restraint of the kneecap reduces the risk of dislocation or partial dislocation (subluxation), and ensures that the kneecap tracks correctly within the groove at the front of the thigh bone. The resultant improved tracking of the knee cap can alleviate the symptoms of Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (pain around the knee cap).
This knee brace has a lightweight aluminium hinge and lightweight breathable mesh fabric for extra comfort.
