The Breg PTO Knee Brace provides effective patellofemoral support and pain relief through the entire range of motion of the knee joint.  The unique patella buttress attaches to the side hinge bars to provide greater force on the patella and normalize tracking during walking and running activities. The PTO (Patella Tracking Orthosis) hinge dynamically adjusts the amount of compression applied through the lateral pressure plate on the patella buttress according to the amount of bend in the knee.  As the knee moves into extension, the plate and buttress work together to form a lateral "soft tissue wall" to control patella subluxation. The Breg PTO provides effective stabilization for patella maltracking, subluxations/dislocations, and patella instability. The hinged design, dynamic patella donut capabilitiy, and lightweight materials make it a favorite.  It's available in a standard neoprene or soft Airmesh material which is both breathable and latex-free.  The PTO "standard" model features lightweight aluminum for durability that's suitable for everyday use, rehabilitation of common patella overuse injuries, and non-contact sports. 

 Breg PTO Knee Brace Features:

  • Patented Cawley Tension Hinge adjusts tension generated by the hinge bars to pull the buttress down around the patella to enhance patella stabilization.
  • Only patellofemoral brace on the market that works "dynamically" as the patient performs normal knee movement while walking and/or running.
  • Adjusts to whatever range of motion is necessary at the knee while bending or straightening the knee for normalized gait.
  • Progressive compression of the lateral soft tissue (peak force reached at full extension) surrounding the knee cap is applied enhancing the positive effects of the patella buttress.
  • Available in sizes XS-XXL - please see our sizing chart tab above for important sizing guidelines. 
  • The PTO is available in standard neoprene or Airmesh material- a lycra/polyester material that breathes for comfort. Excellent for warmer climates.
  • Right/left specific.
  • NOTE: This item is guaranteed to be 100% NEW unlike other third party sites selling the same item with 5+ year old materials, old glues, and old resins - Buyer beware.

Available Options:

Side: choose right or left knee.

Material: choose Airmesh or standard neoprene material.

Version: choose between standard models with the material left in behind the back of the knee or an open back popliteal cutout behind the knee where the brace material has been removed to reduce bunching up with deep knee bending.

Recommended Manufacturer HCPC: L1820

Breg PTO Soft Knee Brace Reviews

  1. More than 1 great product Review by Angela Thornburg

    Excellent for pain relief and use for patella maltracking and chrondomalacia. The open back model's opening behind the knee began raveling when I put it on immediately, because it appears to have no hem on the opening. Kim at DME called the manufacturer and they are sending me a replacement, with no hassle or problems. The customer service at DME is EXCELLENT making sure I am satisfied with my purchase. Andrew, the online help operator, walked me through the options and benefits of the Breg cooling systems. Since the purchase of the PTO brace, I have bought two more things from DME. Outstanding online retailer.

  2. good knee brace Review by R Patel

    Picky about what I wear, but this one works very well. I was surprised, but my knee felt quite a bit better right away. I'll continue to use and suggest the brace to others that need something like this.
