Webtech Short Knee Brace - All Questions
No this brace does not have adjustable flexion and extension. It doesn't really have hinges to prevent flexion and extension. It is more for general knee and patella stability.
Better Braces Sales Support
The sleeve with this brace doesn't have to be worn. the brace is just as effective without the sleeve. this brace whould be a better fit than the traditional sleeve knee braces and not quite as bulky
The Web Tech will provide stabilization to the anterior knee including the patella and this should be suffcient for your son. The brace is very low profile
The Webtech would not be the best brace for your son. I would suggest the Playmaker II knee brace. This brace has bilateral hinges that will protect the knee from medial and lateral forces and help stabilize the knee. https://www.donjoystore.com/donjoy-playmaker-ii-knee-brace
I would suggest a hinged knee brace such as the Bionic knee or the Economy hinged Knee Brace. A hinged knee brace will support the knee while playing Tennis. https://www.donjoystore.com/donjoy-economy-hinged-knee
I'm a 30 years old woman badminton player playing for about 7 years in competition. I'm training minimum 4h weekly and up to 10h during competitions on some week ends. I had a patellofemoral pain syndrome diagnosed when I started competition (an instable knee cap sliding on the external side of the knee). The pain ( or I should rather call it disconfort) is on and off depending a lot of parameters that I don't control (periods where I don't feel anything and others where my knees are hot inflamed). I used and I'm still using a elastic sleeve with a hole for the kneecap. Even if that works, I've always sweated a lot in it, and as I use it really often (especially on the competitions), it is annoying to wash it all the time (basically every week) because it smells. And even, this is generally not sufficient.
I've seen different physiotherapists to work on it, in order to play without it, but as I don't have much time to work out beside badminton, i keep on wearing it on the competitions, that are extremely demanding!
This Donjoy performance webtech short knee brace would be really interesting because i would sweat that much in it, but would it be supportive enough for my knee cap instability?
Thank you very much for your answer,
This brace should provide you with the support around the kneecap and relief of pain that you need while doing your activities. The brace should be cooler than what you are currently wearing and will provide more support than what you are used to.
I have chronic patellar tendonitis(after this long it would be considered tendinosis maybe??). several years of pain off and on, mostly on. Any type of quick or sudden move tends to set it off. I am trying to choose between this and the webtech knee strap. I have a donut style patella knee brace(Mueller or Mcdavid) and it doesn't seem to provide much relief for me and this looks to be a similar mechanism, but perhaps a bit stronger stability. Thoughts or suggestions?
Sounds like you might need a bit more support than just a patellar strap. The Webtech Knee Brace will provide more support to the front of the knee and the pattelar tenson. The webing absorbs force and dispeares it within the leg to decrease anterior knee pain.
This brace is basically the same and the Reaction Web Knee Brace except the webing material is all silicone instead of the elastomeric material in the Don Joy Reaction
