3-Time Pro Bowl Linebacker Trusts DonJoy To Keep Him Healthy and In The Game For The 2016 NFL Season

DonJoy Performance announces today the addition of San Francisco 49er's star linebacker NaVorro Bowman to its roster of professional athletes. Bowman will serve as the face of the DonJoy Performance DEFENDER line to promote on-field protection for players of all ages.

Bowman's introduction to DonJoy came after his career-altering injuring in the 2014 NFC Championship. After suffering a torn MCL and ACL in the left knee, leaving him unsure of his future on the field, Bowman turned to the DonJoy A22 Knee Brace and diligent rehab to get back in the game. He was able to return to play for the 2015 season, finishing with a career-high and NFL-leading 154 tackles.

As the face of the DEFENDER line, Bowman will promote the use of DEFENDER Skin, a flexible and versatile form of protection available to athletes today. DEFENDER Skin is a breathable adhesive second-skin designed to defend the body against cuts, scrapes, burns, pain and bruising often associated with impact and abrasion of rigorous sports.


“When I was unsure about recovery from knee injury in 2014, I put my trust in DonJoy to help me fully recover. As I go into the 2016 season, I know DonJoy Performance has me protected.” said Bowman.

“Having NaVorro as the face of DEFENDER couldn't be a more perfect fit. As one of the hardest working linebackers in the NFL, it's imperative that he is protected on the field. We are proud to add him to our roster of athletes that trust DonJoy to keep them in the game and playing to their fullest potential,“ said Charlie Setzler, GM, DonJoy Performance.

DEFENDER Skin is available in 3' rolls of 2” or 4” width and worn by athletes in team sports, outdoor sports, fitness, and action sports. You can learn more about DonJoy Performance and DEFENDER products at DonJoyPerformance.com.
