I've never used the Donjoy braces but I currently use a Breg unloader knee brace.  You will notice a difference, they do help if they are fitted properly and the condyle pads are adjusted properly.  If you get one make sure it is fit to you and you are shown how to make the adjustments.  A properly fitted and adjusted unloader will make all the difference.

I am in need of one of those braces for post-op microfracture and my increased pain. How do I get one without paying the $500-600 for it. I had surgery on 3/09 and was not given the NWB protocal for MF for the MFC area!
