    • I had a total knee replacement in the pass 5 months and I am looking for a sleeve for a trip and I was told that I could use this sleeve. Will this be a good idea to control some of the swelling.
    • Yes it would work but you may want to also take a look our DonJoy Performane Trizone Knee Sleeve this would provide a little more compression on the knee due to the injected plastic on to the sleeve. PLEASE SEE LINK BELOW:

    • when i wear braces my knees sweat, does the drytex prevent that from happening?
    • The drytex will be cooler than neoprene so it should have less sweating

    • I am interested in the donJoy Drytex basic knee sleeve. Question is? What is it made of? and is the material thin so that it will fit under another brand knee brace that I already have that contains neoprene and is giving me a rash.
    • If you want something to go under another brace i would suggest our Lyrca undersleeve. https://www.betterbraces.com/knee-brace-undersleeve-cotton-lycra

    • Is it recommended to use this product regularly in a pool as long as it is rinsed after each time?
    • You can wear that product in a pool as long as you rinse and let air dry

    • Does this have Latex? I am allergic to neoprene and latex, so I'm trying to see if this is an option.
    • Scott
      the Drytex is a substitute for neoprene so it can be worn by those allergic to latex and neoprene

    • I have a skin allergy to silicone. Does this brace use a silicone band to help keep it up?
    • No it does not
  • Tom Dauria at 3/11/2013 5:12 PM
    • I'm interested in this product, but I don't want the kind of sleeve that has a hole for the patella. Can you confirm that there is no hole in this knee sleeve?

    • Hello, Tom -

      Yes, you are correct, the DonJoy Basic Knee Sleeve does not have the patella cut out in the front.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    • Do you recommend this product to protect your skin against chaffing? My brace works well however did iritate the back of my knee where there is a strap.
    • TB,
      Thanks for contacting DJO Global, did you look at our cotton lycra undersleeve? DonJoy Knee Brace Undersleeves are the best way to improve comfort and protect your skin from chaffing. Also a great way to keep your leg and knee a bit warmer during cooler months while helping to control moisture during warmer times. Easy to apply and washable. 86% Cotton, 14% Lycra.

    Perfect fit

    A real disappointment

    I measured as instructed and order this brace to support my knee as it heals. Two major problems: Within a couple of days, the brace began sliding down as I walked. In addition, the seam is very uncomfortable and can be felt (scratching) constantly. Hate it.
    Pros: Looks comfortable
    Cons: Feels scratchy at seam Doesn't fit well even after measuring

    I have a fit issue. large a little too large, medium a little too small. That`s my only issue otherwise it is ok although I had to return the medium i ordered. The large I have had about 6-8 months and it slides down.
