Open patella braces, as the name suggests, leave the patella or kneecap uncovered. Some models are completely open in front, while others have a small reinforced opening just large enough for the patella. Some doctors consider open patella braces more comfortable for extended wear than closed patella braces, which take the form of a continuous tube of supportive material.anyhow ask your orthopedic doctor once before you use open one.

Hi.  Open Patella one,  may stabilise the Patella in an effective way. No details of severity of your condition. Depend more on Exercises.
