Breg ShortRunner Knee Brace

The Breg ShortRunner Hinged Knee Brace is a versatile intermediate brace ideal for medial and lateral instabilities.

Similar to the standard Roadrunner, the ShortRunner (14" length) can be used in a wide variety of daily activities. The low profile polycentric hinges with contoured condyle baskets offer good joint line control.

Great brace like it fine. See my review.

I like my brace just fine. It provides support without too much restriction. It goes on easy and is simple to clean. SUGGESTION The top strap on my braces, two, measure 34" in length. A strap of 29" would be sufficient. The longer strap puts it on the rear side of my thigh when fixed.

Great brace

I twisted my knee in a skiing fall and this brace has allowed me to recover much more quickly than I would have without it.

Stability I was looking for

After 4 knee surgeries, my old brace would not give me the stability I needed to function during sports function. One of the younger members at the gym that I belong to had recently undergone knee surgery and had a Breg brace and recommended it to me. I am glad he did. For the first time in a year, my knee did not buckle while jogging on the treadmill and it offers me the stability and support that I was looking for. I couldn't be happier.

Nice support

This brace is what my doctor suggested. I did have a little problem with it slipping, however.

Got me back Running!

I fell and gave myself trauma chondromalacia patella. This brace has allowed me to get rid of my cane and walk normally again. The best part is that I can finally get back to running and the brace stays put. It was very stiff the first few times I put it on (I have the pull on) but it has since loosened up and slides on fine now. I would highly recommend this brace!

Fits and feels great

Per Ortho. Dr. suggestion, I ordered one knee brace to try since both knees need replacing. Swapped the brace back and forth between knees - feels and fits great - just ordered another brace so both knees have better stability.

Breathable Support

The Airmesh versions is a very lightweight and breathable support brace. Overall great fit. Stays in place as long as the lower strap is relatively tight. The seams on the open back model are rough and cause minor irritation. I use a cloth sleeve under the brace to eliminate that.
