The DonJoy Armor is a great rigid brace. If you want the same protection in a lighter brace, also check out the DonJoy Full Force Ligament Knee Brace.
Which would be the best choice defiance, full force ?
Also what difference between rx braces and off the shelf. Thanks. Ken
The DonJoy Defiance is a custom knee brace that is built specifically to your measurements. Because of this, the Defiance will always be the best rigid brace we carry in support and ACL protection.
The DonJoy Fullforce is a great top of the line off the shelf brace (meaning sized like small, medium, large). This brace will add support and stability to the knee and help protect the ACL.
Neither braces will require a prescription.
Either brace will fit the application and activity level you described.
2. What part of the brace is shorter on the "short" size, the part of the brace which is below the hinge or above the hinge?
3. I am purchasing the brace primarily to avoid knee hyper-extension ( PCL protection?). I see that in the "Knee Compartment" section above there are three options in the "Choose option..." box: ACL, CI and PCL. Does each of these represent a slight variation in the brace and if so, what are the variations?
1. 1 inch
2. Calf Cuff
3. The strapping sequence changes to address the ACL, PCL or both, (CI or combined instability)
