We always love hearing how our products are fighting the good fight when it comes to protecting athletes from injury. Green Bay Packers right tackle, Bryan Bulaga, says he believes his DonJoy knee brace saved him from another ACL tear while playing in the season opener against the Seattle Seahawks. While the medical reports haven’t confirmed it yet, he believes his knee brace saved him.
The DonJoy Armor Knee Brace with FourcePoint hinge is great for football players and reduces the strain on the ACL by distributing the weight load on the ligament, making it comfortable to wear while protecting ligaments. The brace also reduces the amount of time the knee is in an at-risk position to protect the knee. The flexion angles of the brace can be adjusted to your comfort level and recovery requirements giving you the level of protection you’re looking for.
We can be sure that the DonJoy knee brace will be a part of his regular equipment when he suits up for all of his games this season. We wish Bryan Bulaga a speedy recovery! Read the story here.
With all of the switching, kicking, colliding with other players and running at high speeds involved in soccer, it’s no wonder that so many players develop knee injuries over time. Even the mildest of ligament strains can bring a player down and force him or her out of the game for an extended amount of time. Our trained experts recommend the DonJoy Playmaker II Knee Brace to help heal and prevent ACL, MCL and LCL instabilities and injuries.
The DonJoy Playmaker II Knee Brace offers more comfort than traditional braces because it’s created from a high-performance, durable and breathable nylon and spandex blend, allowing you to move on the field like normal. The brace also uses a hinge design to prevent overextension, minimizing the risk of injury even more. Even Megan Rapinoe, Olympic gold medalist for the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team, wears the brace to further protect her from ACL injuries.
The versatile strapping is comfortable and adjustable, making recovery or prevention of injury easy and unrestrained. Whether you’re treating chronic ankle instabilities or need a brace for preventative measures, the DonJoy Playmaker II Knee Brace is right for you.

Over 30 years ago, DonJoy pioneered the idea of functional knee bracing and works closely with doctors and athletes to continue that spirit of innovation. The DonJoy brand is commonly used by professional athletes and often prescribed by physicians for all types of knee pain and conditions.
A great example of DonJoy’s innovative knee brace technology is with the FourcePoint hinge. DonJoy set out to make a knee brace hinge that better protected an athlete’s ACL ligament. The FourcePoint hinge reduces the amount of time that the knee is near full extension, otherwise known as the position where the knee is at most risk for an ACL injury (or re-injury). It’s been clinically proven to provide additional ACL protection.
Here are some products using FourcePoint Hinge technology:
