DonJoy Armor Ski Knee Brace with FourcePoint Hinge

The Armor Knee Brace is DonJoys strongest and most supportive off-the-shelf brace. It has been designed specifically for highly active athletes or individuals with ACL, MCL, or PCL injuries or instabilities.

The DonJoy Armor Ski Version knee brace is the same brace as the Armor, but with the addition of a ski deflector positioned on the inner hinge. The deflector prevents the hinge getting caught on a brace worn on the other knee, so is recommended when two braces are being worn.

If you have suffered an ACL tear and start skiing again without wearing a brace to protect your knee, the likelihood of sustaining further ACL tears increases by three to four times. The Armor Ski Version is therefore a brace to consider as it provides such an excellent level of support, allowing you to get back on the slopes and feel confident that your knee ligaments are stable and protected.

The Ski Armor is 15 in length, the same length as the regular short calf option, to accommodate ski boots.

The Armor is made from 6061-T6 aircraft grade, lightweight aluminum. Although it weighs little and has a low profile frame, it is stronger, thicker, and more stable than any other lightweight frame on the market.

As well as the deflector, the brace features the patented Four Points of Leverage. This protects the ACL by strategically placing cuffs and straps in four positions on the front and back of the thigh and calf. These pre-load the tibia backwards, effectively reducing strain on the knee.

You can set flexion stops at different angles ranging from 25 degrees to 65 degrees. These limit knee extension and can be adjusted depending on your particular needs.

The medial (inner) thigh area of the brace is designed in a curve to avoid the thigh getting pinched. As the aluminum is malleable, the brace can be bent in or out for a better fit. The strap tabs swivel, also allowing for a better fit and suspension of the brace. It comes with supra condyle pads that keep the brace in position, no matter the level of activity. Additional, thinner condyle pads are included, which can be substituted if the brace feels a bit tight.

A Calf Pinch Guard and Impact Guard are available as add-ons that can be bought separately.

If your leg measurements indicate that you are at the higher end of one size but the lower end of another, choose the larger size. The key measurement is your knee as the malleable aluminum allows you to bend the ends of the brace around your leg for a better fit.

Care of the brace is simple. If it gets wet it should be rinsed off in freshwater and air-dried. Wash any soft parts by hand with laundry detergent, rinse, and air dry. Dont put soft parts in the dryer. A Teflon-based dry lubricant (like a bicycle chain lubricant) is good for the hinges.

Knee injuries are by far the most common injuries suffered by skiers. Donjoy created Armor Ski knee brace to give you a dependable edge on the slopes. Donjoy is the official medical supplier for the United States ski and snowboarding team.
The DonJoy Ski Armor is similar to Standard Armor knee brace with a short calf culf, but also includes 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 feature is only available with the Ski Armor Knee Brace.
