DonJoy Tru-Pull Advanced System Knee Brace

The patented DonJoy Tru-Pull Advanced System knee brace is designed to provide excellent support for chronic knee conditions such as dislocations, subluxation, and patellofemoral misalignment.

The brace, which is available with or without hinges, consistently keeps the patella (kneecap) in its correct position within the intracondylar groove of the knee joint, ensuring that it tracks properly. This prevents dislocations and subluxation, and reduces associated knee pain.

Deciding whether or not to choose a hinged brace depends on the level of support your knee requires. The lightweight but strong aluminum hinges provide additional stability for both sides of the knee and assist in controlling movement of the patella. The hinges also control the degree of leg extension, thereby protecting the knee from hyperextension.

This brace is suitable for use in many sports including basketball, wrestling, snowboarding, golf, and surfing. It is extremely comfortable to wear and users feel confident that while they indulge in their favorite sports or daily activities, their kneecaps are being kept secure and stable.

The design of the brace incorporates an elastomeric pull device. Essentially, there are two adjustable pull straps, positioned above and below the kneecap, which give a good, comfortable, firm fit. The positioning of the straps provides a strong and consistent pull on the kneecap during extension. This pull maintains the kneecap in its correct position.

There is a padded buttress that sits up against the kneecap. This also keeps the patella properly aligned as the knee extends. Two buttresses of differing thicknesses are provided with the brace. The user can choose which thickness is more comfortable. The buttress is adjustable and can be trimmed to maximize contact with the patella.

An anchor near the base of the Tru-Pull Advanced stops rotation of the brace. This keeps the pull on the patella consistent and therefore prevents lateral subluxation of the patella.

You can choose a brace with a popliteal cutout, which is an opening at the back of the knee. Fabric can sometimes pinch the skin at the back of the knee when the knee is bent. The cutout can lessen this; it is also cooler to wear. The cutout does not alter the efficiency of the brace, so it’s a matter of personal preference. An open popliteal can be more comfortable, but is not recommended if you suffer from inflammation as any swelling can get pushed to the back of the knee. A closed popliteal knee brace provides more compression and is therefore slightly more supportive.

The brace is constructed from Drytex, a patented Lycra fabric surrounding a nylon core. Drytex is an anti-microbial, lightweight, more breathable alternative to neoprene. The better airflow means that the Drytex option is good for warmer climates or people who are allergic to neoprene.

The Tru-Pull Advanced is suitable for use in water. If submerged in salt water or chlorinated water it should be rinsed off with tap water and allowed to air dry.

Wash the brace by hand using cool water and mild soap. Lay it flat to air dry. Don’t put it in the washer or dryer.

The Hinged Tru-Pull Advanced System works to stretch the lateral retinaculum, easing the mechanical stresses on the patella. It aslo reduces pain relief of patellofemoral dysfunction including lateral subluxation/dislocation, lateral mal-tracking and patellar tendonitis.
