DonJoy sets new pace with Armor FourcePoint™
DonJoy’s R&D department has spent the winter months rigorously testing our very latest rigid knee brace, the Armor FourcePoint, which promises to give even more ACL protection.
It enhances DonJoy’s 4-Points-of-Leverage System™ by dampening knee extension and reducing shear forces at the knee.
The FourcePoint™ hinge uses a spring mechanism which engages in the last 25 degrees of extension and provides resistance during knee extension.
Importantly, for all active sports participants, the low profile FourcePoint™ hinge features a new, sleek, protective steel outer plate, able to withstand the impacts of contact or extreme sports.
