The DonJoy Hinged Air Knee Brace is designed to treat and ease pain associated with patellofemoral malalignment, chondromalacia and tendonitis plus medial/lateral instabilities and post-operative meniscectomies. The brace features an inflatable pneumatic buttress for medial, lateral or full patellar support, thus the reference to "air" in it's name. It is constructed with Drytex, a neoprene alternative that allows for improved air flow.

The DonJoy Drytex Hinged Air knee brace provides joint pain relief caused by various knee conditions, particularly patellofemoral misalignment. Designed to enhance mobility, provide stability, and increase flexibility, the brace helps relieve pain associated with conditions such as chondromalacia, patella tendonitis, mild medial or lateral knee instabilities, MCL or LCL knee sprains, and post-operative pain from meniscectomies (the removal of the meniscus).

Thebrace is made from Drytex, a patented Lycra fabric surrounding a nylon core. Drytex is an anti-microbial, breathable, lightweight, and hypoallergenic fabric that wicks away moisture and is an excellent alternative to neoprene (which is used for surfers wetsuits). The better airflow means that the Playmaker is good for use in warm climates or for people who are allergic to neoprene.

The wraparound brace has Velcro straps that can be adjusted for a more customized fit. The straps also allow for adjustable correction of the kneecaps tilt, glide, and rotation. There is a half wrap on the brace at the back of the thigh, which makes putting on the brace easier.

There are uprights and hinges incorporated in the brace. These help to suspend and stabilize the brace, preventing migration and increasing support. The soft, polycentric hinges conform to the knee joints natural movement so knee action is unimpeded. You can fully flex your knee while wearing the brace, but if you do need to limit flexion there are stops that can be installed to prevent the knee from bending more than 0, 10, 20, 30, or 40 degrees. The brace comes fitted with a flexion stop set at 10 degrees.

There are also extension stops that can be set at 45, 60, 75, or 90 degrees to limit knee extension.

Inflatable buttresses are provided so that, depending on your requirements, you can increase the level of support for the medial or lateral side of the patella, or completely around the kneecap.

The brace features a popliteal cutout, which is an opening in the brace, at the back of the knee. The cutout can help prevent the Drytex material pinching the skin at the back of the knee when the knee is bent. The cutout also makes the brace cooler to wear.

The DonJoy Drytex Hinged Air knee brace is 13 long and is available in six sizes. To ensure the best fit, take measurements of the circumference of your leg 6 above the knee, at the center of your knee, and 6 below the knee.

If the brace is used in salt water or chlorinated water it should be rinsed off with fresh water. Wash it by hand, or in the machine on a delicate cycle, using cold water and a mild laundry detergent. Dont put it in the dryer, but lay it flat to air-dry. A Teflon-based lubricant (bicycle lubricant) is good for the hinges if the brace is often in water.
