What experts liked
Snug fit, but comfortable and offers unmatched support during physical activity.
- BestReviews
The big advantage about the Donjoy is that it is a wrap around knee brace meaning it is much easier and quicker to put on than the slip on sleeves like most of the other hinged knee braces in this post.
- Dr. Body Gadget
The DonJoy Reaction Web Knee Brace can help speed up the recovery process and help alleviate pain that is paired with knee ailments.
- Brace Access
What experts didn't like
Sizing is unreliable. The web portion tends to wear away after consistent use.
- BestReviews
Costs more than the other options
- Dr. Body Gadget
With heavy use, the Velcro straps on this brace will wear and will need to be replaced.

From The Manufacturer

The DonJoy Reaction WEB Knee Brace uses a responsive, webbed approach to knee pain that gives you a distinct alternative to the basic knee sleeve. Developed by world renowned orthopedic surgeon, Dr. William Nordt, the DonJoy Reaction WEB can help decrease knee pain and increase function, getting you back to your active lifestyle. The elastomeric web is an innovative solution that absorbs shock, disperses energy and shifts pain away from your knee. This webbing acts to dynamically stabilize the patella (kneecap) on all sides, bringing the patella into proper tracking position to reduce pain. The open framework of the elastomeric web, in combination with the mesh backing, creates a comfortable fit and a breathable solution for relief of anterior knee pain. It's secured with Velcro straps, and weighs only 0.5 lbs. The lightweight design makes this knee brace ideal for all-day use. One undersleeve is included, and is made of 85% nylon/15% spandex. The DonJoy Reaction WEB can be used to treat or prevent the following knee injuries: patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), chondromalacia patella (runner’s knee), quadriceps or patellar tendonitis/tendinosis (jumper’s knee), Osgood-Schlatter disease, general patellar tracking issues and instability, and mild knee osteoarthritis. The DonJoy Reaction WEB is worn by professional snowboarders, volleyball, football players; as well as the U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Ski teams. Universal fit allows the DonJoy Reaction WEB Knee Brace to be worn on either the left or the right leg.
