Alternative Product Solutions


The Tru-Pull Lite is DonJoy's most comfortable, low profile and shortest patellofemoral brace, yet strong enough to help relieve knee pain! This patella support brace is designed with pull straps above and below the patella (kneecap). This puts a "true" and consistent pull on the kneecap during flexion and extension, which realigns the patella. By properly aligning the kneecap you reduce the pain that comes with patellofemoral problems like dislocating your kneecap.

Features & Benefits

  • Bifurcated strap pulls patella into proper alignment and helps reduce pain
  • Dual durameter buttress system provides a soft tacky connection with the patella ensuring maximum support
  • Thigh and calf anchors prevent brace from rotating
  • Breath-O-Prene fabric is breathable and lightweight
  • Plastic hinges provide additional medial and lateral stability
  • Designed to support and protect patella instabilities, dislocations, and tracking issues, mild to moderate anterior knee pain, patellofemoral dysfunction, lateral subluxation, and patellar maltracking
  • Best for everyday activities, running, soccer, walking

    Would Buy Again

    Reviewed by:
    Started wearing this brace almost a year ago at the recommendation of my PT Dr. who also advised me to remove the hinges which I did. Wearing the braces (left and right) made a noticeable difference as opposed to no braces. I'm not magically 100% pain free all of the time. But my knees feel pretty good or are pain free most of the time, including while doing physical/athletic activity. I've worn both braces for a majority of the days out of the week over the past 10 months. I have replaced the velcro on the right brace straps. The left brace straps have held up well. Over time the braces have stretched and are bordering on becoming worn out. Probably by the end of summer I will be ordering a new set. I would recommend this product to anyone with tracking problems. Taking the braces off at the end of the night also feels great since they are designed to be tight/snug fitting. If you wear them enough you will get used to them and forget you even have them on. If you are not sure about buying these, just buy them, you won't be making a wrong decision. The comfort they have provided me outweighs any amount of discomfort the braces have caused.
    Pros: Provides stability and comfort. Washable. Velcro is replaceable.
    Cons: Velcro may need to be replaced. Can get uncomfortable if driving a car for a long time.

    Good Quality.

    Reviewed by:
    Holds nicely. I wish there was an in between size as one's too tight and one's too loose (I'm in the slightly too tight one). Hinges do dig a little. But I haven't felt this kind of relief in years. Was prescribed by my doc.
    Pros: Good Quality.
    Cons: Hinges dig at the top.

    really nice for about 1 month

    Reviewed by:
    i tore my mpfl following a patellar dislocation and this was the brace i got from my doctors. it was a really nice brace that i had to wear to cheer and when i was working out for the next year, except after one month the velcro stopped working and it doesn't stay together. sleeping in this brace is also not a fun experience. i understand that they must be supportive braces, but the metal hinges on either side of the brace really dig into the sides of your knee and caused them to feel like when you've been blowing your nose to much and it's starting to hurt to rub/press on the affected area. i would recommend this brace for short term injuries, but not for long term ones. also i am 14 but i fit into the adult size. they're are only children size and adult size so the brace was a bit big on me.
    Pros: very supportive, soft, comfortable, doesn’t have knee bending limit
    Cons: metal hinges on sides dig into knee, velcro gives out really easily, definitely not one size fits all

    The best brace

    Reviewed by:
    I love this brace. My knee pain has diminished so much to almost never hurting. I tried other knee braces and they didn't work.
    Pros: Easy to put on. Does not roll and stays in place.
    Cons: If anything could be changed, it would be nice if it was a little lighter.

    Needs stronger VELCRO

    Reviewed by:

    It was great until it held up by the Velcro. I have been wearing it daily for 3 months and the Velcro got too worn out to hold. SAD face! :(
    Pros: Holds OK!
    Cons: Velcro gives in too easily for such a price! Wish it could be replaceable. What a waste to throw out the whole brace because of two 2 inch velcro bits!

    Great support from this brace. I've worn one since 2015 (prescribed by my PT guy) and just ordered another for my right knee. Skiing Rockies 40+ times per season - this will make for more aggressive attack of the mountain with little to no recovery from a day on the slopes.
    Pros: Stays adjusted to tightness and position selected at the start of the day. No readjustment necessary.
    Cons: I only had one brace all this time...

    Great Quality Brace!

    My daughter has been wearing this for almost a year for a patellar subluxation. I came to this site to buy a replacement of the same exact brace because it works well, keeps her knee cap in place, and makes her feel safe.
    Pros: The gel pack holds the patella in place; it easy to strap on and stays in place
    Cons: It gets smelly, of course and over time, the gel pack eventually wears down (expected).

    after a total knee replacement and 2 tears, one being a partial tear of the quad tendon and a tear in my quad this helps keep the knee cap on track rather then going back into the knee for immediate repair right now....good for what it is needed for...would recommend this brace for anyone with a patella tracking issue...
    Pros: light weight...non cumbersome...
    Cons: none that i can think of

    Just what the Dr. ordered

    Reviewed by:

    After a broken leg in a motorcycle accident, my husband's kneecap would never sit into the groove as it should (it was staying to the outside of the leg). When it would shift, his leg would buckle. This brace helps keep the patella stable so that a fall is less likely. Seems well made and easy to put on and adjust. We've only had it a short time but it looks durable. We are pleased at this point.
    Pros: Easy to figure out what's right for you
    Cons: The wedge that goes against the patella needs to be cleaned to keep it's stickiness ----- not really a con ---- just a reminder.
