Armor Knee Brace with FourcePoint Hinge
The strongest and most supportive off-the-shelf brace for contact sports with added ACL support via the FourcePoint Hinge
WHATE IS ACL
ACL Knee Brace for ACL Tears and Injuries. Wearing an ACL brace can help prevent injury to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament or help support your knee after an
ACL tear or injury. A brace specific to protecting your ACL reduces the amount of time that your ACL is in an “at-risk” position for tearing.
Features & Benefits:
Four-Points of Leverage Dynamic System
This patented technology was developed to reduce the strain on the ACL by distributing the load placed on the ligament via four points.
FourcePoint Hinge Technology (Stop kit not included)
Makes you less likely to suffer from an ACL injury because it reduces the amount of time your knee is in an “at risk position”, enhances the Four-Points of Leverage by increasing the posterior load applied by the brace on the tibia, and improves your natural gait by applying progressive resistance before reaching a firm end point during movement.
Adjustable Extension Resistance
The FourcePoint Hinge enables you to set the flexion angles (25˚, 35˚ (factory setting), 45˚, 55˚, or 65˚) based on your condition or point of recovery. This puts you in control where the degree of tension stops.
Available in Standard and Short Calf lengths (Ski/Snowboard Boot and Motocross Compatible)
Now you can choose the calf length to further customize the fit of your knee brace. The short calf length is recommend if you will be wearing ski boots or similar items at the same time as your knee brace.
Aircraft Aluminium Frame
You get the benefits of a lightweight and low profile knee brace that is also stronger, thicker, and more stable than the other lightweight knee braces on the market.
Anti-migration Supra Condyle Pad
Your knee brace will stay in place no matter how active you are.
Designed to treat and protect:
- Moderate to severe ACL instabilities
- Recovery from ACL reconstructions
- MCL or LCL instabilities
- Meniscus Injury
- Hyperextension prevention
- Baseball & Softball
Reduce Your Chance Of ACL Injury When You Wear This Brace
The DonJoy Armor knee brace with FourcePoint Hinge Technology is the brace to use if you are an extremely active individual or athlete who suffers from an ACL or MCL instability or injury. Offering the same features as the standard armor brace, this model is equipped with FourcePoint hinge technology – clinically proven to provide additional ACL protection by reducing the time spent near full extension (otherwise known as the “at risk” position).

Our low profile hinge combined with our internally mounted straps promote bilateral use that won't impede performance. The steel reinforced hinge plate and enhanced aluminium frame deliver uncompromised strength and proven protection. There are numerous publications to support the 4-Points-of-Leverage FourcePoint hinge.
This brace is suited for any active individuals with ligament instabilities and athletes involved in extreme or contact sports brace like football, skiing, snowboarding, motorcross, surfing, wakeboarding, and more.
