Custom Knee Braces by DonJoy®
Shop custom knee braces by DonJoy®. Custom knee braces are custom-fitted to your knee to help provide the right fit and protection for your knee. Our custom knee braces are low-profile and light-weight allowing you to stay active without the bulk. Should you wear a custom knee brace? Athletes looking for support and protection for moderate to severe ligament instabilities such as the ACL / PCL, MCL / LCL, and CI (combined instabilities) may benefit from a custom brace. Our Fourcepoint™ Hinge Technology helps reduce the amount of the time your knee is at an “at-risk” position. Our two custom braces include the DonJoy® Defiance® III and the DonJoy® A22®. These knee braces are ideal for many sports like football, basketball, football, volleyball, and water sports. Note: Due to the customization of the Defiance® III and A22®, these custom braces are not eligible for general returns or the 30-day moneyback guarantee.
Why Custom Bracing?
This patented technology was developed to help reduce the strain on the ACL by distributing the load placed on the ligament via four points.
The rigid anterior thigh and posterior calf cuffs combined with a specific strapping sequence, provide four-points-of-leverage shown to help decrease ACL strain by at least 50%. 1, 2
- Anterior Thigh Anchor
- Posterior Tibia Anchor
- Lower Thigh Strap pushes femur anteriorly
- Anterior Tibia Strap applies an active constant load to help prevent anterior tibial translation
The Fourcepoint™ design simultaneously dampens knee joint extension, improves the braces mechanical performance, and increases flexion angles. This reduces knee shear forces and decreases the overall strain on the ACL.
How? The Fourcepoint™ Hinge utilizes a spring mechanism to apply a gradually increasing amount of resistance during knee extension. The resistance reduces the amount of time your knee is in an "at-risk" position by increasing the posterior load applied by the brace on the tibia. The resistance is adjustable with 5 different resistance levels to accommodate activity level and comfort.

I have Defiance III's for both knees. After 30 years of playing hockey my knees would not fetch a plug nickel at a rummage sale. Both medial compartments have arthritis, the ACLs are barely hanging on, the meniscus look like a thin shag carpet with holes, and the MCLs are stretched. I wear them for hiking, rock climbing, skiing (both alpine and nordic) and work outs. They perform way beyond my, or my Doctors expectations. Three hour hikes in steep mountain terrain or a day spent climbing overhangs are not a problem.

Immediate & Significant Benefit
I put the brace on 4 days after arthroscopic repair (15%) of my medial meniscus and diagnosis of ACL almost 100% torn. The company rep was fantastic. The brace immediately improved my comfort as well as my ability to begin rehab exercises. I feel like wearing it all the time.
