Product Questions

I have dislocated my kneecap on my right knee 3 times now. But I am a long distance runner. Is this the best brace for my situation? Also I have dislocated my left kneecap once but it feels strong. Should I wear the same brace on the left knee as my right when I return to running?
Question by: Stephanie on Mar 24, 2010, 8:10 PM
The DonJoy Performer Patella Knee Support is a terrific brace for keeping your knee cap aligned during activity. Since you are a long distance runner you might want to look at a lighter weight brace that will be a bit more ideal for running. Have a look at the DonJoy Tru-Pull Lite ( It's primary function is to help with patella tracking while being lighter and cooler than this Performer Patella which is larger overall and therefore supports the entire knee not just the knee cap.

I am an avid basketball player, and i have patella chondromalacia in both my knees. Will this knee brace provide me with optimal support? Also, as of recent my knees tend to accumulate fluid and swell up when I play sports, will this prevent any additional swelling or help keep everything in order?
Question by: Bobby on Jun 7, 2010, 2:08 PM
This knee support would be good choice for your condition. The compression and support it provides to your knee should help with your patella chondromalacia and swelling your experiencing.

My daughter plays Volleyball and dislocated her kneecap. the Dr. said she may be prone to this in both kneecaps due to how her knees are formed. She had used a J brace, it isnt holding up that well as well as her kneecap doesnt fit into the hole. she has also used a smaller one similar to the True Pull light but the straps stretch so feel loose. does the Performer offer the support the J brace does but maybe this will be easier to put on.
Question by: Mary on Jul 21, 2011, 7:13 PM
No the Perform is not going to provide any more support than the J brace, or the Tru-pull Lite. I would suggest looking at the Tru-pull Advanced System. It is going to provide the most support for the patella.

I have concusive damage to the meniscus in my right knee. It is not a full tear. I have been doing some therapy, but noticed a lot of improvement when wearing a similar brace that my wife had from years ago, the problem is that it is too small and I can only wear it for short periods of time. Would this brace be ideal for helping heal from my condition? What seemed to help about he other brace was the support from the stays on either side and the compression.
Question by: Steve on Dec 19, 2013, 1:21 PM
Thank you for contacting DJO. This brace should give you the compression you want but if you want metal hinges on either side you need to order the hinged version of this brace which is available as well. If you have any other questions please let us know

Hi, I'm a defensive lineman and I dislocated my kneecap in a football game last season. I have completed rehab, but I want something that I can wear in game and practice to prevent this from happening again. Is this a good choice?
Question by: Jeff on Jan 7, 2016, 5:26 PM
The Tru-Pull Lite would be a good choice for you. The brace will prevent further patella dislocations and is small enough for you to be able to move arond freely.
