Is the DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee right for me?

Whether you have a MCL/LCL injury or general knee pain due to mild arthritis, previous meniscus tear, contusions or patella instability, the DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee delivers light support to the knee during daily activities, twisting and side to side movements. Designed with unexposed, padded hinges, this brace is ideal for individuals who don’t want to wear a rigid brace or for athletes who participate in sports that aren’t allowed to wear one, like wrestling, rugby or youth soccer.

Designed to support and protect:

  • Protect ligaments from re-injury
  • Help reduce swelling due to injury
  • Ease pain associated to ligament instabilities
  • Help prevent injury when participating in sports

Best for:

  • Protection and prevention for MCL/LCL ligament injuries or instabilities
  • Day-to-day activities: Work, errands, walking

Features & Benefits

For anyone who needs mild support for MCL/LCL injuries, or general knee pain due to mild arthritis, previous meniscus tear, contusions or patella instability, the DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee offers:

  • Polycentric hinge with 10-3/4" aluminum uprights
  • Removable hinges
  • Neoprene or Drytex material available
  • Popliteal cutout behind the knee to avoid bunching up behind your knee
  • Buttress available for anyone with patella instability
  • Light and durable
  • Sleeve or wraparound option
  • Thigh and calf straps provide additional support for any activity
  • Easy to apply and fit

About the DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee

Offered in a wraparound or sleeve option, the DonJoy Economy Hinge Knee brace is designed to give your knee mild medial-lateral stability. The wraparound style makes it easy to fit any size/shape leg. This brace is ideal for individuals with mild MCL, LCL or PCL injuries, arthritis, previous meniscus tear, contusions or patella instability. It’s also suitable for people who’ve had surgery on their knee recently and athletes who participate in contact sports. The neoprene and drytex (only available with the wraparound style) material makes this brace breathable and comfortable for all-day wear. Can be ordered with a popliteal cutout behind the knee where the brace material has been removed in an oval cutout to reduce bunching up of material behind the knee.

DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee Care

After usage, we recommend you remove the uprights, then rinse with fresh, clean water and let it air dry.

Product Questions

what is the difference between a open or closed popliteal and a sleeve or wrap around for this brace?
Question by: Sally on May 5, 2016, 3:52 PM
The popliteal space is located behind the knee so the brace can either come with an opening in that area or can be closed. A sleeve is slid up over the foot and ankle to the knee and the wrap around has velcro closures in front so the brace wraps around the leg and is closed by that velcro in the front of the leg.

I want to know whether the Economy Hinged Knee Brace can be helpful in preventing Hyperextension.
Question by: Peter on Aug 23, 2016, 7:47 AM
The Economy hinged knee brace ships with a 10 degree extension stop installed in the hinged. This feature prevents hyperextension, and is removable if not desired.
Answer by: Admin on Aug 23, 2016, 7:47 AM
Are these braces made for use on either leg or do I have to choose for right or left
Question by: Karen on Aug 15, 2016, 11:21 AM
The DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee can be worn on either leg.

Hi, I have a 20.5" thigh, 16" knee, and 16" calf. What size do you recommend ?
Question by: Ryan on Feb 13, 2016, 2:50 PM
I would recommend the medium
Answer by: Admin on Feb 13, 2016, 2:50 PM
I had an ACL reconstruction in 2005 and unfortunately tore the graft & medial meniscus recently. I will be undergoing surgery in December 2015. While my orthopedist provided a brace to restrict movement post-surgery, the material and make of the brace do not seem too great. I am looking to purchase a brace to be worn when I am active to prevent re-injury (after I wear the brace provided for 4 weeks post-surgery to restrict movement).

After doing some research, my understanding of my options are as follows: (1) Economy Hinged Knee Brace, (2) Deluxe Hinged Knee brace, (3) Playmaker II, (4) Playmaker II with Fourcepoint hinge and (5) Reaction Web knee brace. Is that accurate? And which brace would you recommend for running / hiking / plyometric exercises?

Thanks a lot!!
Question by: YX on Nov 18, 2015, 12:13 PM
After a ACL reconstruction you will want to wear a rigid functional knee brace while doing activities. The best brace is the Defiance Custom Knee brace. The Defiance is our best ACL brace and it has clinically proven fourcepoint hinge and our 4 points of leverage strapping system that will help prevent re-tear of the ACL. If you would like a off-the -shelf alternative, then look at the Full force Ligament knee brace. It has all of the same features as the Defiance but is not custom made. All of the braces you listed would not be appropriate
