Without more information, it would be difficult to comment. I have found that if it is not tight enough, or the right size, it will make no difference.  If your knee buckles, do the hinges lock? It's possible you could need a brace where you can lock or unlock the hinges, depending on what you're doing. I really don't know.
ask your therapist. they're supposed to know something about bracing too.

I second that, also if its not in the exact right place over your kneecap its going to allow the knee to do it own thing failing to support it
