  • From Eduardo at 3/22/2010 9:40 PM
    • Is the Donjoy impact guard knee and shin protector is for sports and if so is the shin protector removable
    • Yes the DonJoy Impact Guard can be used for sports. It is a popular addition to the DonJoy Armor Knee brace for sports like Motocross and Skiing. If you want to remove the shin portion for other sports or activities you can do so by cutting off the shin portion leaving your knee as the only part protected by the padding.

    • Is this a product that can be use to play soccer with and if i can would it make me slow when i play. plus can it give maximum support on the lateral of the knee
    • This Impact Guard is an add on accessory to for rigid DonJoy Knee Braces. It by itself is not a brace or support. It just adds extra protection and padding to the knee and shin while wearing a DonJoy Knee Brace. We wouldn't recommend the entire shin protector for soccer. You'd be better off with regular shin guards. Although if you needed extra knee padding while where a DonJoy Knee brace you could use this, but we'd recommend trimming the shin portion off in lieu of regular shin guard.

    • How exactly do I determine what size to order? I have a Defiance brace.
    • Hello Byron,

      Please send us an email @ with your brace serial #. With this we can determine the correct size.

    • Will the impact guard help prevent damage to the brace if you slide. A previous DonJoy brace bent badly and was ruined after a slide playing soccer. Thanks, Michael
    • The DonJoy Impact Guard Knee And Shin Protector would protect the brace but will add un-necessary bulk to the brace. The reason this product would help protect the brace is because it covers the hinges which is most likely the part of the brace which sticks in the ground when sliding. A more suitable solution would be purchasing a brace cover. The material of the DonJoy brace cover is very breathable and will streamline the brace to avoid catching the ground.

    • will this fit a DonJoy Defiance III Custom Knee Brace or only certain ones?
      i play and referee Roller Derby and have to wear knee pads and when i saw this it instantly made me want it. So i was hoping this would actually take the place of my knee pad on my right knee.
    • Hi Chris,

      Yes, the impact guard can be worn with all DonJoy rigid knee braces.

      Have a nice day.

    • Hello Diane,

      Our defiance has an option for a shin protector, it must be attached to frame. You can contact your Donjoy Rep., with questions about this option.

    • I have this model in size M this device works for this model and size

  • From Jessica at 3/28/2014 1:59 AM
    • I got my brace from my doctor, I know it is a don joy but how do I determine what model and whether or not it is compatible? It seems larger than most of the ones I see on this site.
    • Thank you for your question. You can call product support at 888-405-3251, we can help you determine which brace you have based on color, hinges, graphics ect.
  • From rober at 1/17/2015 7:10 PM
    • do you use this with the condyle pads? or you remove them when using the shin protector
    • The condyle pads are removed
  • From Jenny at 2/8/2015 7:22 PM
    • Is this attachment compatible with the DonJoy SE-4 Knee Brace?
    • Jenny
      Yes this brace will be compatible with the Impact guard
  • From beth bryant at 2/15/2015 7:13 PM
    • can these be used for roller derby? I am having an impossible time finding a knee pad that I can use over the defiance!
    • Beth
      This pad has a shin protector as well so you may want to alter the pad. the outside of the pad is a hard plastic but the inside is soft. You could use it for roller derby,
  • From michael at 4/9/2015 6:08 PM
    • what are all of the knee braces that the impact guard attachment is compatible with? and when you place an order for a custom brace, and also order the impact attachment, will the attachment come already installed on the brace when you receive it. .
    • Michael
      The impact guard will fit on all rigid knee braces except the OA everyday and ACL everyday. When it is added to a Defiance order it does not come already installed you will have to install yourself
