A simple, easy to apply bracing for patellar subluxation, dislocation, malalignment and instabilities. The Tru-Pull Wraparound brace, designed by Dr. John Fulkerson, incorporates his patented technology of independent straps, which provide a consistent pull on the patella. A choice of buttresses give the patient an option for more aggressive support. The Tru-Pull Wraparound is an ideal choice for patellar subluxation, dislocation, malalignment and instabilities.

these braces cannot be worn over jeans they are to worn against the skin or are not effective. The Tru Pull Advanced system will offer more support to the knee cap than the lite but will be a little more cumbersome
The Tru Pull is mainly for patella dislocations. I would suggest either the Reaction Web Knee Brace or the Performer knee Brace. Both of these braces will give more support around the patella helping to decrease anterior knee pain. The Reaction Will be the cooler brace of the two. https://www.donjoystore.com/donjoy-reaction-knee-brace
If your knees hyperextend the Tru-Pull will not prevent that. You would need a hinged knee brace that will restrict motion. We do have one soft brace that has this capability. The DonJoy Playmaker has an adjustable hinge and etension stops can be installed on the hinge to limit extension. The stops could possibly help that hyperextension that you are getting. https://www.donjoystore.com/donjoy-playmaker-ii-knee-brace-2
For cartilage damage and an ACl tear I would suggest a different brace. The Tru-Pull Wrap is for kneecap instability. I would suggest a hinged knee brace such as the Playmaker II https://www.donjoystore.com/donjoy-playmaker-ii-knee-brace-2 The Playmaker is going to give support with the cutting of a sport such as tennis and protect the ligaments such as the ACL
