DonJoy Armor Skiing Knee Brace**** THIS BRACE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE DONJOY ARMOR ACTION SHORT KNEE BRACE ****
The ultimate skiing and snowboarding knee brace, this version of the conventional DonJoy Armor knee brace has been customized specifically for snow sports enthusiasts, who commonly incur leg injuries. Manufactured from light, super-strong aircraft aluminum, DonJoy Ski Armor Ligament Knee Bracing is especially designed for those with cruciate ligament knee injuries or instabilities in ligaments such as the ACL, PCL and MCL.
Fifteen inches in length, Ski Armor is especially recommended when two braces are worn together, as the customized ski brace is fitted with a ski deflector on the inner hinge, preventing one brace from accidentally catching on the other. The patented technology utilized in these skiing knee braces incorporates four points of leverage to reduce ligament strain. Use of this device can help you increase your activity level while decreasing the need for anti-inflammatory medications.
The DonJoy Ski Armor is different than the standard Action Armor (Extreme) or Short Armor.
The DonJoy Ski Armor has a Medial Ski Deflector along the medial or inner hinged of the knee brace. This deflector prevents the medial (inner) hinge from 'hooking up' with the other brace or knee. This is incorporated into the hinge itself and cannot be removed. This feature is only available with the Ski Armor Knee Brace. The DonJoy Ski Armor is recommended when two armor braces are worn at the same time.
