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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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'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

  • 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 support for walking

    Reviewed by:
    I was using the trizone knee brace for walking, but wanted one a bit smaller so I tried this the last two days. I've put about 8 miles in wearing it and it is pretty amazing. It stabilizes the knee really well so that I feel I can go further than before, without pain.
    Pros: Light weight, cool, straps have stayed put so far.
    Cons: I am in between sizes. The small barely fits if I don't wear the sleeve underneath. I have ordered a medium, and will see if it also can work.

    Wow! What a difference!

    Having recently been diagnosed with torn cartilage behind the knee and advised by the doc to wait two weeks to see how things go before considering surgery. So I needed something to help me walk and negotiate the stairs, which causes significant pain. I purchased several braces which only helped minimally. My wonderful sports-savvy daughter sent me this brace which arrived this morning. My legs and calf are small, and the Size Small short knee brace fits perfectly. I have been able to walk without limping but haven't yet negotiated the stairs. Fingers crossed!
    Pros: Comfortable snug fit; easy to put on/take off. Rubberized web surrounds allow movement, yet keep the knee/ligaments in check.
    Cons: Actually, I needed a magnifying glass to read the instructions! Really? The instructions over-complicate and confuse how to secure the brace. Just look at the photo and you'll quickly figure it out. Good grief; so easy!

    I had a patella dislocation and have tried roughly a dozen different braces throughout my recovery and I have to say that this has been the most comfortable one. I do have to say that I don't wear the sleeve, I find it more comfortable without the sleeve.
    Pros: Great patella support. Comfortable and breathable.
    Cons: The material on the back should have been more stretchable/flexible.

    This knee brace is very practical and functional for patellar subluxation. The open knee area is large enough to support the patella/knee cap without putting pressure on. The velcro allows for adjustment to get a secure fit. It is sleek enough to fit under most clothing. It is not bulging and looks ok, for a knee brace.
    Pros: functions well; adjustable for a good fit without dependent edema; comfortable; fits under pants/leggings; less coverage area to allow own muscles to work with the brace
    Cons: velcro is weak.

    provides support but uncomfortable

    Reviewed by:

    It seems to provide good support but has a tendency to slip down during use. It chafes somewhat behind the knee, even with the optional sleeve. I used about 10 times but still not sold on it.
    Pros: Supports the knee well.
    Cons: Uncomfortable rubbing behind the knee. Some difficulty keeping it in place.

    Swimming again

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    I have patellofemoral pain with mild chondromalacia. I bought the donjoy short knee brace because my physical therapist recommended swimming, but kicking with my legs in the pool was somewhat painful for my sore knee. With the brace, I can swim very comfortably. I don't really notice it while I am in the water. I do not use the included cloth sleeve in the pool.

    The brace gives good support even though it is small and light. It is easy to put on and adjust, and stays put even when wet. It does not rub or irritate my skin.

    After swimming, I just put the whole thing in the wash. The front part is plastic, but the back part is a slightly padded material that absorbs pool water. After washing, I hang it up to dry. It is soon ready to go for the next day. I have been swimming in this brace for about a month. So far, it has held up well.

    Pros: Light, easy to adjust, stays in place during vigorous activity, REDUCES PAIN!!!

    Excellent brace

    Reviewed by:

    I have bi-lateral patellofemoral dislocation with lateral and medial damage to one knee. I have purchased multiple braces and of all the braces, the short web tech braces have allowed for better walking, lower pain in both knees, and my swelling is minimal. Braces came with inserts and can be worn with or without the included inserts, I prefer to wear the braces without the inserts. The braces do exactly as described, they keep my patellas in place. Prior to using this light weight brace I could only walk limited distances and stand for short periods of time, the use of these braces have helped me stand for longer periods and walk for longer periods. Although I still do feel pain, the pain is not as bad as prior to using these braces (L&R). The braces also do not cut off circulation. I do recommend the short web tech brace, they are light and allow for good range of motion and after a while you don't even feel like your wearing a brace.
    Pros: Light weight Allows good range of motion Excellent price Keep patellas tracking correctly Little to no swelling Easy to use Easy to wash Comfortable
    Cons: The insert can be tight and cause swelling Wish the insert came in size medium/large instead of either medium or large.

    I'm so disappointed in this. The velcro straps are ridiculously short, so the top doesn't really fit, but the straps aren't long enough to put it where it ought to be. The back part is also too long so it folds and creases in a really awkward and uncomfortable way.

    I would also recommend ordering the next size up if you must order this, because the size chart is wildly inaccurate.

    The sleeve would also be way better with out the "stay put technology" aka rubber dots. All that does is roll down on you and strangle your leg.

    Cons: Not made for human legs.
