One wrong step or twist of the knee could leave you on the sidelines for a year.
Athletes today are bigger, stronger and faster, yet Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries continue to rise. In fact, there are more reconstructive surgeries performed for ACL injuries than any other knee ligament injury, according to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine .
A 16-year study of National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) injuries revealed that the highest rates of ACL injuries occurred in men’s football and women’s gymnastics, basketball and soccer . Surgery and recovery can leave athletes on the sidelines for 6 to 12 months, or longer depending on the rehab program.
Take preventative measures to avoid future ACL injuries post injury. Studies show during the initial 12 months following ACL reconstruction, the risk of re-injury is 15 times greater compared to someone who’s never injured their knee.
As part of our stable line of sport performance bracing products, the BIONIC FULLSTOP provides ACL protection during recovery from injury, as well as prevention of future injury. FULLSTOP dampening hinges prevent hyperextension and help improve joint mechanics in both surgical and non-surgical knees.
Stay off the sidelines and in the game with the DonJoy Performance FULLSTOP Knee Brace.
