Donjoy Armor Knee Brace with Fourcepoint FAQ Series Pt. 1: Which Size Do I Need?

Wednesday, 13 September 2017  |  Paul

The Donjoy Armor Professional Knee Brace with Fourcepoint is one of our most popular products here at Health and Care, but we often get queries about the support. In this series, we'll answer some of the most highly-asked questions we receive about the support. The first in the series kicks off with the most frequently-asked question: which size do I need for the knee brace? Read our guide to help you avoid confusion so you can order the brace as soon as possible.

So Which Size Do I Need?

The support is available in seven different sizes so it's no wonder there's some confusion. But such a wide range of sizes means that you can get a more personalised fit, which will provide you with the best support and stabilisation for your condition. Finding the correct size for your Armor Brace with Fourcepoint is easy; all you need to do is take three leg measurements, as shown below. All of this can be done with a flexible measuring tape.

Sizing your Donjoy Armor Knee Brace with Fourcepoint

  1. Stand with your legs slightly bent and a shoulder-width apart. Your leg muscles should be contracted during this process.
  2. Measure up 15cm from the centre of your knee.
  3. At this 15cm point, wrap your tape measure around your thigh and record the area's circumference.
  4. Next, wrap the measuring tape around your knee at its centre directly over your patella (i.e. your kneecap) and make a note of the circumference.
  5. Measure down 15cm from the centre of your knee.
  6. For this final measurement, wrap the measuring tape around your calf at this 15cm mark and record the circumference.

Next, check the table below and find out which size will fit you best. Once you've completed these steps, you're all ready to purchase the Armor Knee Brace with Fourcepoint! If you find that the brace isn't snugly fitted to your knee joint, get the Pack of 5 Knee Pads to pad out the area.

Extra Small 33 - 39cm 30 - 33cm 25 - 30cm
Small 39 - 47cm 33 - 35cm 30 - 35cm
Medium 47 - 53cm 35 - 38cm 35 - 40cm
Large 53 - 60cm 38 - 43cm 40 - 45cm
Extra Large 60 - 67cm 43 - 48cm 45 - 50cm
