Sleeve Vs. Wraparound
Sleeves require you to remove your shoe and slide the brace over your foot. Fits more snugly and stays in place. Once it's on it's requires little adjustment. The negative of a sleeve is it doesn’t work well over pants. Wraparound braces are easier to apply especially for those with less hand strength and can be worn over thin pants. The velcro can be tightened or loosened for a more adjustable fit. Great for users who can't bend over as well and have trouble getting a sleeve on or off. The negative of a wraparound brace is the velcro can loosen during activity requiring a quick tightening of the Velcro.
Neoprene Vs. Spacer
Neoprene has a more compressive and warmth capability than Spacer. The Spacer material is ideal for patients who have allergies or irritations to Neoprene or live in warm weather climates.

Product Questions

Wow! So many questions and so little time. I scanned them all and did not find any that addressed my subject: I just received my brace today. I will be using it for a MCL injury from skiing. It cam with a book and a bunch of little metal pieces. I THINK I figured out where they go, but the book is not terribly helpful. What are these metal things FOR? Do I need them?
Question by: Denise on Mar 25, 2016, 4:28 PM
Those are stops for the hinge. If you needed your brace to restrict your knee motion the stops are added to the hinge to to do this

I have a grade two ACL sprain and my ACL is partially torn is this a good brace to use daily on my knee ?
Question by: Sophia on May 3, 2016, 7:37 PM
Yes the Playmaker II is a great brace for someone who has a partial tear of the ACL. The brace will stabilize the knee while doing normal daily activities.

What is the best material when the brace is used in the summer time?
I see 2 options, Neoprene and spacer.
Question by: Pietro on Mar 27, 2014, 5:23 AM
The Spacer material will be cooler and breathable compared to the neoprene which will be hot and collect sweat

Would this be a good brace for a wrestler?
Question by: Burnstl on Jan 6, 2015, 1:47 PM
This brace would great for anyone play in any type of sports. What matters is what you need the brace for. the brace gives moderate support for all of the ligaments of the knee.

I have medial pain in my knee and it has been aggravated with my golfing. I bought a wrap around Playmaker II with spacer since I live in SoCal but it isn't very comfortable. I wanted the flexibility of on and off but it feels like it is falling down. Should I get the sleeve type or is there an under wrap that will make it feel more comfortable?
Question by: Ray on Jan 4, 2016, 6:14 PM
The wrap around version can sometimes slide down, so changing to a sleeve might alleviate the problem.
Answer by: Admin on Jan 4, 2016, 6:14 PM
