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, 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.

- Do you have any knee braces like this one that are not hinged?
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

- 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?
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.
