Webtech Short Knee Brace


Silicone web evenly distributes pressure to the Quad and Patellar Tendon

* Required Fields




Our DonJoy Performance Webtech Short Knee Brace features an innovative three part system that is ideal for relieving common forms of knee pain often associated with sports injuries, overuse injuries and degenerative conditions. Specifically, the Short Knee features a unique web structure that evenly distributes pressure over the Quadriceps and Patellar Tendons, and helps to stabilize the patella and ensure proper tracking. Compression molded back pad adjusts easily to optimize fit and comfort, and a four way stretch lycra/mesh undersleeve eliminates hot sports and provides an added layer of protection. Compared to the Webtech Knee Brace, the Short Knee is approximately 50% shorter which makes it ideal for relieving pain often associated with tendonitis, commonly referred to as runner's and jumper's knee.

Features & Benefits

  • Silicone web surrounds and stabilizes the patella to ensure proper tracking
  • Strategic bracing design helps fight a wide variety of knee pain while allowing full mobility
  • Compression molded back pad with mesh for maximum comfort and breathability
  • Undersleeve with anti-migration technology

    • Hi, Is the Webtech good for water sports, like wakeboarding?
    • This brace can be worn in the water. We always recommend rinsing the brace with water and allowing the brace to air dry completely between uses.
  • Hyder at 9/29/2016 11:07 PM
    • Will this help with severe patellar tendinitis?
    • This brace will help as it will put prssure on the tendon that hurts to reduce the stress its puts on the bone, as well as the webbing will act as a shock absorber.

    • Is your webtech knee short knee brace good for both left and right knee?
      I want them for patella stability of my left knee and for support of my right knee due to arthritis behind the top of my knee cap that cause some pain.
      Thank you.
    • Hello,

      Yes, the brace is universal you can wear it on either knee.

    • I've had meniscus repair 3 months ago, but still feel discomfort & tightness in and around the knee. I've also had treatment for ITBS. Is the Webtech short knee brace enough support? I am trying to remain as active as prior to the knee surgery with running and cycling.
    • The Webtech Short Knee Brace was designed mostly to stabilize the patella. A better brace for a healing meniscus would be the Reaction Web Knee. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-reaction-knee-brace

    • My 14 year old daughter needs a brace to wear during hockey (goalie). She has patella femoral tracking problems with pain. She needs a brace that will stay in place during activity.
    • As a goalie, it may be better for her to to try the Tru-Pull Lite, https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-tru-pull-lite, which is a bit stronger brace for that type of activity.

  • Al at 5/3/2016 8:17 AM
    • Hi, I have had an ACL recon years ago and wear a knee brace. However, I am looking for extra support for my aching patella. Would the short webtech with the padded anaform sleeve as a combination be a good option to help my patella and also provide some knee joint stability?
    • The Webtech and short Webtech come with undersleeves so I would suggest using those as the Anaform undersleeve may be to thick for the brace to be effective

    • I have moderate patellofemolar compartment OA with assymetric joint space loss laterally and osteophyte formation and mild medial compartment OA. Do you recommend this brace or another?

    • Hello,
      I play slow pitch softball and I am the catcher. How does this brace effect or hold up to the squatting into a catcher position and reaction time of jumping up for plays?
      I have pain of the knee cap and swelling of the patella. Will this help with that pain?
      Do you have any other recommendations?
    • The Webtech Short Knee Brace is going to be the best brace that you will want for your knee conditions and activty level
  • Dean at 1/29/2016 11:28 AM
    • I had an impact fracture on the outside of my left knee one year ago and a MCL stage II tear (no surgery). From time to time while bowling or playing golf my knee fatigues to a point where it collapses. Which brace would help?
    • The Webtech Knee Brace should provide you will general support and help with any anterior knee pain that you may get.

    • Yes this is a good option for you
  • Cameron Alexander at 1/25/2016 12:46 PM
    • Would this brace be good for support in the medial meniscus? Ive had 5 surgeries and a meniscus transplant and i am looking for the best brace for relief
    • I would suggest the longer brace for you. The Webtech Knee would give the support you need for the meniscus.
  • Grant at 1/19/2016 12:43 PM
    • Is this the right brace for providing support for olympic style weightlifting?
    • It can be worn by a weightlifter but I would need to know your diagnosis to tell you if it is the right brace
  • Bob R at 1/18/2016 3:47 PM
    • I have gone through a few different knee braces for Chondromalacia and they all seem to slide down my leg after some time. Would you recommend this brace, or any other, to combat that? I really want one that stays in place. Thanks!
    • Yes the Webtech short knee brace should be a good option for you
  • Justine at 11/18/2015 3:49 PM
    • I have patellofemoral pain syndrome which affects the medial side of my patella when I go into a low squat position. I'm a varsity level rower so I need something extremely lightweight/has the least amount of fabric covering my knees. This brace looks like it's the best in terms of weight and comfort, but will it provide adequate support?
    • Justine
      This brace should provide you with the support you need around the kneecap
  • Chris at 11/10/2015 6:54 PM
    • I've had patellar tendinitis on my left knee for about a year now - off and on based on any time I try and resume soccer. Would the webtech short knee brace offer the most support and pain relief for this issue or would the webtech knee brace be even better (it's bigger but bigger isn't always better). I want whatever will protect, support and disengage he patellar tendon the best. Thanks
    • Chris
      The Webtech knee brace(bigger) would be a better choice for your problem
  • Coachrw at 11/7/2015 6:17 PM
    • Does this brace come with the under sleeve for the $70 price?
    • Yes the under sleeve comes with it
  • Ben at 8/30/2015 8:18 AM
    • Hello,
      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?
    • Ben
      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.
  • Lou at 8/15/2015 11:03 AM
    • My son has had 2 medial femoral bone contusions while playing football. We are looking for some extra protection for that inside knee area when he's back on the field and also support to the inside MCL, which has been sprained. Is this a good choice or is there something more effective for these injury types? Thank you
    • Lou
      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. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-playmaker-ii-knee-brace
  • Jenni at 7/22/2015 11:10 PM
    • I have medial subluxing of kneecap after a fulkersons procedure. I currently use the woman's defiance III with a tru pull attachment. I am wondering if the smaller webtech short knee brace will give the same level of protection for the mal tracking that the bulky defiance with tru pull attachment gives. Thanks!
    • The WEBTECH SHORT KNEE BRACE only offers a MILD support compared to the DEFIANCE.

Great brace!

Reviewed by:
Comfortable, secure, effective. This brace allowed me to get in and out of Hawaiian surf without any problems from a healed but tender tibial plateau fracture.

Good knee brace

Reviewed by:
Does a nice job for patella support and is not bulky so it can be worn all day. I found I had to wear it with the sleeve, otherwise it caused rubbing.

Good brace - holds my knee firmly

Reviewed by:
Good brace. Holds my knee very well. Only issue I've had is the velcro tabs that hold the brace in place are fairly abrasive and one rubs against my opposite leg, which led to a skin abrasion on my first run. I've just put a large band aid over that spot and it's good to go.

Excellent Brace for my Patella Problems

Reviewed by:
I tried this brace for chondromalacia after having fit problems with the full-size reaction web knee brace, and I LOVE it! The fit is great and I can do pretty much everything except lunges with little or no patella pain or weird movement. Of course, after a few months, the velcro is not holding up too well, a continual problem with donjoy's braces, and the sleeve is getting pretty worn and they don't sell a replacement. Other than that, very satisfied!


Hi Lynne, thanks for your feedback. We're glad you love this brace! We're sorry to hear about the velcro issues and will report this to our product team. As for the sleeve, we do have Under Sleeves by Anaform that will fit well under the Webtech Short. Check them out here: https://www.betterbraces.com/catalogsearch/result?q=anaform+under+sleeves

Thank you.

Great product for stabilizing the patella

Reviewed by:
Every year the state of Iowa holds RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa). I just finished riding my bike 420 miles this past week. On last year's ride I suffered knee problems because my patella shifts a lot on both knees. This year I tried the Webtech Short Knee Brace. I can't believe the difference it made in my ride! No pain and I was able to ride my bike up the hills like a pro. Thanks to this brace I feel I'll be able to run and work out more too. I love it!

It's not for complete restricted subluxation of the patella but we have found it is a help.

Very pleased with the Webtech Short Knee Brace. It works to keep me pain free.

Reviewed by:
I like the Webtech Short Knee Brace a lot. I wear it every day at work to keep my knee from wandering and wobbling. My lateral knee ligaments were stretched permanently due to injury, and I walk constantly on concrete floors at work. This brace is more comfortable than the Don Joy Reaction knee brace, which I have also used. This brace keeps my knee in place and keeps my knee from swelling and keeps me from being in pain during and after work. The only negative thing I notice with this and the Reaction braces is that the velcro tends to lose its grip eventually.

A brace that does the job, but some improvements could be made

Reviewed by:
I bought this brace because I like the fact that is is light and easily removable. Also, as I sweat a lot during badminton tournaments, it is easy to wash it. However, I think there could be some improvements, like some elastics in the back part of the brace. As I often have to bend my knee, the pads don't stay in place because the grip is not strong enough. I fixed that with sewing a stronger scratch. But what makes me sad is that the silicon part just torn at the attachment with the plastic at one corner, that makes it unusable now...:(
