The Donjoy Sports Hinged Knee Support is specifically designed for use in sport, however this does not just restrict it to sports alone. It has a low profile construction incorporating strong aluminium hinges. These stays prevent the knee twisting unnaturally, protecting the ligaments within the knee. This product is made by a material designed by Donjoy called Drytex, created specifically for knee braces. It is a very compressing material, designed to provide the wearer with a great level of comfort, compression and warmth, whilst retaining breathable tendencies to prevent sweating and overheating. It is also neoprene free.
As the Donjoy Sports Hinged Knee Support is a wraparound design, meaning you wrap the product around the knee, securing with Velcro pads and straps. It is a user friendly type of application, as it can be taken on and off very easily, perfect for those who have intermittent knee problems, and may need it at different times of the day.
Another great benefit of the Donjoy Sports Hinged knee brace, is the hinges are completely incorporated in the material of the product, which makes this brace a very popular one in sports that have potential to be contact sports such as Football. Often officials ban players from wearing braces if they have any exposed metal, or could cause potential harm to another player. Not only are these hinges incorporated, they also have a layer of Drytex material over them which will also work as a protective barrier.
The Donjoy Sports Hinged Knee Brace is a medium-high level support. It offers an excellent level of support to ligament injuries due to the incorporated hinges on the product. These hinges allow for the normal movement your knee would have, however prevent any of the unnatural factors caused by injuries within the knee. This includes hyper mobility in the knee, general weakness where it feels it may give way, bowing of the knee laterally and medially (inwards and outwards), as well as preventing the knee from twisting when the product is being worn.
When the Donjoy Sports Hinged Knee Support is worn, and wrapped around the knee, it is designed to leave a gap for the patella (kneecap) to sit in, and the material of the product is shaped to wrap around the kneecap. This will aid patella tracking enormously, if it is prone to moving and slipping, this brace would do a great deal to prevent this.
Even though the Donjoy Sports Hinged Knee Brace was designed for use within Sports, this doesn't mean that it cannot be used outside of a sporting environment. It is ideal for doing day-day activities, such as gardening, walking around the house, up and down stairs, and walking the dog. Due to its wearer friendly design it can easily be took on and off with no trouble.
