The DonJoy Armor knee brace is the brace to use if you are an extremely active individual or athlete who suffers from an ACL, MCL, or PCL instability or injury. The Armor brace is the strongest and most supportive brace you can get without a prescription.
Since skiing knee injuries are so common, DonJoy created a version of the Armor knee brace just for skiers. The DonJoy Ski Armor is similar to Standard Armor knee brace with a short calf culf, but also includes a Medial Ski Deflector along the medial or inner hinged of the knee brace. This deflector prevents the medial (inner) hinge from "hooking up" with the other brace or knee. This feature is only available with the Ski Armor Knee Brace.
The DonJoy Ski Armor is recommended when two armor braces are worn at the same time. If only one brace is to be worn, the DonJoy Short Armor Knee Brace is recommended. The Ski Armor is 15" in length (short calf) to accommodate ski boots and other high calf boots.
The DonJoy Armor knee brace for skiers is used to treat or prevent the following injuries:
This brace is best for skiers or snowboarders who suffer from...
- Moderate to severe ACL or PCL instabilities
- ACL/PCL combined instabilities (CI)
- Recovery from ACL or PCL reconstructions
- MCL or LCL instabilities
