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.
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!!
