What is the McDavid 429 Hinged Ligament Knee Support?

The McDavid 429 Hinged Knee Brace is lightweight with intelligently designed aircraft grade aluminium gears that accommodate the natural gliding action of the knee. The hinges incorporates hyperextension stops to cushion and protect the knee (so you can't bent it backwards any further than straight) while the neoprene sleeve aids warmth retention which helps recovery from injury by keeping the muscles supple and flexible.

The McDavid 429 Hinged Knee Brace features geared polycentric hinges on the inside (medial) and outside (lateral) of the knee to provide strong support to the knee joint. The hinges are a superior engineered design which makes it ideal for skiing and most sports. "Geared" means that if you were to bend one end of the hinge towards you, the other end will move in as well therefore it is actively assisting the bending of the joint removing a lot of stress and strain on the knee joint as a whole. The McDavid 429 Hinged Knee Support also features a fixed horseshoe shaped padded patella buttress which aids in kneecap tracking and helps relieve some symptoms of Chondromalacia, patellar subluxation and patellar tendonitis.

When can I use the McDavid 429 Hinged Ligament Knee Support?

The McDavid 429 Hinged Knee Brace offers the ultimate level of protection and is a fantastic choice for those people looking for a knee brace or support for skiing or snowboarding. The McDavid 429 Hinged Knee Brace provides support for minor to moderate MCL, LCL and ACL ligament problems and instabilities as well as general support for older and worn out knees. Great advice is to always consider wearing two knee braces when skiing because a brace on one knee will stop any further damage but you then don't want to allow your "good" knee to become damaged as well.

The McDavid 429 range also has a higher level product, the McDavid 429X, which incorporates cross straps around the front for greater support. You can find this here; McDavid 429X Hinged Ligament Knee Support

The McDavid 429 Ligament Knee Brace can also offer support to lower level injuries such as arthritis, or tendonitis, due to its comfortable warming material, it will help prevent the knee from seizing up. The soft buttress around the kneecap, provides pressure to the tendons helping relieve the symptoms of tendinitis, whilst keeping the kneecap correctly in place, aiding against patella tracking problems.

What size McDavid 429 Hinged Ligament Knee Support do I need?

Had problems with my knee for months so couldn't do any sideways movement, running was fine, I decided to invest in this knee support to allow me to play volleyball and now I have much more confidence

I bought this whilst waiting for a knee replacement and I'm quite reliant on it to walk now. Makes me feel secure and that my knee won't give way - well worth the extra money

Years of knee problems stopped me playing sports & I'd started to get pain every day, this brace even allowed me to get back into cycling & hiking. You get what you pay for and this is the real deal!

I have been able to return to my normal training following a painful cartiledge injury that wasn't severe enough for surgery. This is a fantastic brace and washes well as the hinges can be removed.

Bought for my girlfriend, who needs more surgery on her knee. Allows her to walk with so much less pain. Can get sweaty and is a bit bulky, however we think this brace rocks - especially for the price
