DONJOY ARMOR FOURCEPOINT HINGED KNEE BRACE FEATURES & BENEFITS:
- FOUR-POINTS OF LEVERAGE DYNAMIC SYSTEM
- This patented technology was developed to reduce the strain on the ACL by distributing the load placed on the ligament via four points. Click here to learn how the Four-Points of Leverage works.
- FOURCEPOINT HINGE TECHNOLOGY
- Makes you less likely to suffer from an ACL injury because it reduces the amount of time your knee is in an “at risk position”, enhances the Four-Points of Leverage by increasing the posterior load applied by the brace on the tibia, and improves your natural gait by applying progressive resistance before reaching a firm endpoint during movement. Note: The Ski Hinge is soon-to-be discontinued. The Armor Hinge offers the same protection. Select a short calf length if using for skiing or snowboarding.
- ADJUSTABLE EXTENSION RESISTANCE
- The FourcePoint Hinge enables you to set the flexion angles (25˚, 35˚ (factory setting), 45˚, 55˚, or 65˚) based on your condition or point of recovery. This puts you in control where the degree of tension stops.
- AVAILABLE IN STANDARD AND SHORT CALF LENGTHS (SKI/SNOWBOARD BOOT AND MOTOCROSS COMPATIBLE)
- Now you can choose the calf length to further customize the fit of your knee brace. The short calf length is recommended if you will be wearing ski boots or similar items at the same time as your knee brace.
- AIRCRAFT ALUMINIUM FRAME
- You get the benefits of a lightweight and low profile knee brace that is also stronger, thicker, and more stable than the other lightweight knee braces on the market.
- ANTI-MIGRATION SUPRA CONDYLE PAD
- Your knee brace will stay in place no matter how active you are.
REDUCE YOUR CHANCE OF ACL INJURY WHEN YOU WEAR THIS KNEE BRACE
Get the strongest, most supportive knee brace for skiing, without a prescription. The Armor Knee with Fourcepoint Hinge has excellent, updated features that make this knee brace worth purchasing without missing features from the soon-to-be discontinued Armor Ski Knee Brace or Armor with Ski Hinge.
The updated Armor Knee with Fourcepoint Hinge offers a new and improved low-profile fourcepoint hinge that’s flush with the frame, so it can be easily worn under your snow pants, and is light so it won’t weigh you down on the slopes. The low-profile hinge eliminates the need for the deflector while still providing ultimate protection for ACL, MCL, LCL or Meniscus instabilities, which prevents the hinge from “getting hooked” with other braces or knee. Designed with internal strap tabs to reduce the risk of the tabs breaking and delivers comfort and security when in motion. The Armor Knee is available in short or standard calf sizes, so you can choose the length you need for a more customizable fit-and it won’t interfere with your ski boot.
The DonJoy Armor knee brace with FourcePoint Hinge Technology is the brace to use if you are an extremely active individual or athlete who suffers from an ACL or MCL instability or injury. Offering the same features as the standard Armor brace, this model is equipped with FourcePoint hinge technology – clinically proven to provide additional ACL protection by reducing the time spent near full extension (otherwise known as the “at-risk” position). The hinge enhances DonJoy’s 4-Points-of-Leverage System by dampening knee extension and reducing shear forces at the knee.
The Armor brace is the strongest and most supportive brace you can get without a prescription. If you are concerned about protecting your ACL during sports or high impact activities, the Armor knee brace with FourcePoint Hinge Technology is the best brace for your needs. Our low profile hinge combined with our internally mounted straps promote bilateral use that won’t impede performance. The steel-reinforced hinge plate and enhanced aluminum frame deliver uncompromised strength and proven protection. There are numerous publications to support the 4-Points-of-Leverage FourcePoint hinge.
