Donjoy Drytex Economy Hinged Knee Brace Reviews

  1. A good, solid brace Review by Chris Richcreek

    Overall, the Donjoy Drytex Economy knee brace has allowed me to continue playing basketball in my late 40s, years after a ligament injury and cartilage surgery. It's not a miracle worker, but it does the job.

  2. excellent product and really helped my knee Review by Donjoy knee brace

    This is my second Donjoy knee brace of this model. The first was prescribed by my ortho doc. The velcro eventually becomes less "sticky" and the brace eventually stretched because I wore it so much, I wore it out. But it took two years to do it. I ordered the same thing on DME (better price). I tried the cheaper brands available in drugstores but they are nothing compared to this one. I find it comfortable (albeit a bit bulky under slacks) even in the hot weather (I live in TX). After wearing it for three weeks I am almost free of pain (I have a patella tracking issue). I checked other sites and found DME to be the best in service, price and customer satisfaction. I did order something else that I didn't like and they they took the return, no questions asked. I give this site and this product an A+.

  3. Amazed Review by Jen H

    I've had 4 surgeries on my knee, including a maquet procedure. So I decide to take up running...yes, I know. First day I tried this brace, I saw a significant decrease in the amount of pain I had during and after running. I won't run another day without it.

  4. Very good knee brace for the money Review by Mark Mikellson

    The brace doesn't have all of the bells and whistles like some of the more expensive models, but it fits well and provides ample support with all of my activities. Love it.

  5. Hyper Extend? No more... Review by So-Cal Surfer

    Been surfing here in Malibu since I was a kid, but lately my knees are feeling pain and have even "hyper extended" a couple times. Now I'm bracing them with these. I can still enjoy surfing without the fear of screwing up my legs. My advice: Rinse off the ocean water when you are done for the day to keep 'em clean and in good shape.
