Product Description

Wear During Sports and Activities

The DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee Support provides mild medial/lateral support of the knee.  If you have knee joint pain, a meniscus injury, have experienced an ACL tear or other ligament injury, this orthosis will provide you with a moderate amount of support as well as pain relief. This DonJoy knee brace contains a polycentric hinge with aluminum uprights in its sleeve. They provide light support to your medial/lateral ligaments, in addition to the support already offered by the orthosis's neoprene and strapping.

The Economy Hinged Knee is designed to be worn during active periods or while playing sports. Many employ padding to protect joints and muscle groups.  Some provide stability to weak or previously injured zones, such as knee tendonitis and acl tears.  Others utilize rigid structures to guard against trauma or jarring motions. Please note the DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee is the same brace as the Donjoy Sport Hinged Knee. The wraparound style is only available in Drytex material.


  • Polycentric hinge with 10-3/4" aluminum uprights
  • Uprights can be removed for washing
  • Neoprene material or cool and breathable Drytex material available.

    • YourDOnJoy Econo Hinged Knee Brace was recommended by my therapist, but my measurements are:
      Knee Center: 16 1/2"
      Thigh: 18"
      Calf: 15"
      Not sure what size to go with?

    • you can try getting the wrap around brace in a medium. Your knee is large but you could fit into the thigh and calf medium

    • Hi,

      I'm trying to understand the ordering options. Does the Sleeve option also have straps? Which option would be better for soccer, wrap around or sleeve?


    • Both the sleeve and the wrap around have straps but if you ae playing soccer in the brace it would be best to get the sleeve. Since you will be doing a lot of running in the brace the sleeve would stay up better on the leg.

    • I had an ACL reconstruction in 2005 and unfortunately tore the graft & medial meniscus recently. I will be undergoing surgery in December 2015. While my orthopedist provided a brace to restrict movement post-surgery, the material and make of the brace do not seem too great. I am looking to purchase a brace to be worn when I am active to prevent re-injury (after I wear the brace provided for 4 weeks post-surgery to restrict movement).

      After doing some research, my understanding of my options are as follows: (1) Economy Hinged Knee Brace, (2) Deluxe Hinged Knee brace, (3) Playmaker II, (4) Playmaker II with Fourcepoint hinge and (5) Reaction Web knee brace. Is that accurate? And which brace would you recommend for running / hiking / plyometric exercises?

      Thanks a lot!!
    • After a ACL reconstruction you will want to wear a rigid functional knee brace while doing activities. The best brace is the Defiance Custom Knee brace. The Defiance is our best ACL brace and it has clinically proven fourcepoint hinge and our 4 points of leverage strapping system that will help prevent re-tear of the ACL. If you would like a off-the -shelf alternative, then look at the Full force Ligament knee brace. It has all of the same features as the Defiance but is not custom made. All of the braces you listed would not be appropriate

    • My knee measurements are: knee 12 1//8, above 16 1/4, below 11 3/8. Should I order XS or S of the wrap around Donjoy Economy Hinged Knee Brace?
    • Karen
      I would suggest ordering the XS
  • Maura at 9/18/2015 1:12 AM
    • What's the difference between the economy hinged and the deluxe hinged brace
    • Maura
      The hinges on the Deluxe Knee are bigger and can be adjusted with stops(not with brace) to restric tknee range of motion. The economy does not have that capability

    • I am and equestrian and have a torn ACL and medial meniscus. I am also in my mid 50s and have not decided as to whether I will have surgery or not.

      I am buying a Playmaker II for barn work, but I am also looking for a brace with a mild support to wear over my breeches while riding. I only ride dressage (no jumping or putting weight in the stirrups) and do not want anything that will "get in the way" or rub my saddle.

      What would you recommend?
    • You are on the right track with the DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee will give you a more mild to somewhat moderate level of support for your ACL and meniscus, and because the hinges are located on the inside of the brace, they should not cause any damage to your saddle or discomfort to you.
  • Alvin at 8/5/2015 12:08 PM
    • What is the difference in the neoprene and
      Drytex materials.
    • Alvin
      The Drytex is a cooler alternative than neoprene, softer material
  • Rachel at 5/6/2015 5:36 PM
    • I have had surgery on my knee to repair a torn meniscus, and since have suffered chronic knee pain, and weakness. would this be a good brace?
    • Rachel
      Yes this brace would be a good choice to provide your knee support after the surgery. It has two hinges to give the medial and lateral support and also prevent the knee from twisting some what
  • NATALIE at 4/12/2015 10:38 AM
    • I have had my left knee reconstructed and medial meniscus removed. I have re-torn the ACL and am looking for a brace to stabilize my knee when being active with aerobics, walking etc. Would you recommend this for someone with my knee?
    • Natalie
      Since you re-tore your ACL you will need to wear a rigid ACL brace for activities such as aerobics. The Don Joy Full Force Ligament knee brace is light weight, low profile and has our patented Fource Point hinge for ACL protection. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-fullfource-ligament-knee-brace A simple hinged knee brace will not give you the protection that you need.
  • June at 3/15/2015 2:12 PM
    • Do you have any knee braces like this one that are not hinged?
    • June
      A brace without hinges would be one of our knee sleeves. The sleeves however do not have any straps. Another option is the Performer knee brace , but it does have a buttress around the kneecap. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-performer-patella-knee-support The hinges in the economy hinged knee brace can be removed
