Skiing with Donjoy – The great range of Donjoy ski braces from Health and Care

Friday, 5 June 2009  |  Paul

As the ski season is fast approaching many of us are scouring the internet to find the best deals on quality ski supports and braces. If you have an old ski injury or are just looking for a ski brace to add extra support while you are skiing, Health and Care have an excellent range of Donjoy Ski braces to fit your requirements.

The Donjoy Armor Professional Knee Brace with Fourcepoint is a ski brace which is suitable for everyone up to a professional athlete level. The ski brace is ideal for injuries to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and for hyperextension and is the only hinge clinically proven to protect the ACL.

The Donjoy Armor with Fource Point has the Donjoy Fource Point Hinge Technology which has four points of leverage. This works by dampening knee joint extension which improves the mechanical performance of the ski brace while reducing shear forces at the knee.

The Donjoy Armor with Fource Point ski brace is ideal for skiing and performs 3 critical functions in protecting the knee joint.

1.       The Donjoy Armor with Fource Point Ski brace reduces the time spent near full extension or in the ‘at risk’ position

2.       The ski brace increases the posterior load applied by the brace on the tibia to prevent anterior tibial translation

3.       The brace eliminates the extension shock felt when a patient extends into a 10° standard rigid stop.

As well as the Donjoy Armor with Fource Point there are a number of other Ski braces available from Health and Care:

  • Donjoy Armor Brace – A ski brace that is the strongest, off-the-shelf, functional knee brace on the market. Designed active people seeking ligament protection, excellent fit and superb comfort.

  • Donjoy Drytex Playmaker Knee Brace – A ski brace that is suitable for mild to moderate ACL and or PCL or MCL and LCL instabilities. A neoprene brace with extended hinge bars, this ski brace is an intermediate level product that can be used is sporting activities.
  • Donjoy Female Fource Point – A ski brace which incorporates Donjoy’s Fource Point hinge technology. Addresses biomechanical factors that have been implicated in the high incidence of ACL tears in females. 
  • Donjoy 4Titude Knee Support – A ski support that is Donjoy’s lowest-profile custom fit brace. Available in 7 sizes in 3 lengths. Suitable for mild to severe ACL, PCL, MCL an LCL instabilities and are looking for solid support.
