Playmaker II FourcePoint


Knee injuries can stop you. Preventing injury or re-injury can keep you moving. The DonJoy Playmaker II FourcePoint increases flexion angles and reduces the risk of ACL injury. So go ahead and say it; I can recover. I can train. I can play.

Playmaker II with FourcePoint hinge technology provides knee stability for mild to moderate ACL, MCL, and LCL instabilities. The FourcePoint Hinge is ideal for patients returning to sports specific activity after ACL injuries.


Why Playmaker II FourcePoint?


  • The FourcePoint hinge technology utilizes a spring mechanism which gives resistance during the last portion of knee joint extension
  • It minimizes the time spent in the “at risk” position, thus lessening knee joint extension to reduce shear forces at the knee (a major cause of ACL injuries)
  • It increases the posterior tibial force placed on the PCL to prevent load/force placed on the ACL
  • Women are 2 to 10x more likely to injure their ACL
  • A person who has torn their ACL has 15x greater risk of a second ACL injury during initial 12-months after ACL reconstruction
  • 50 percent of ACL injuries occur in 15-25-year olds
  • 60-80 percent of ACL injuries are non-contact related
  • Risk of ACL injury to the opposing knee (opposite knee) is two times that of the reconstructed knee
  • Psychological factors, primarily fear of re-injury, influence the ability to return to play

Features of Playmaker II with FourcePoint

  • Updated Fourcepoint hinge technology
  • Available in spacer material – DonJoy’s new advanced fabric is a more breathable material which helps promote a “cool” environment for activities on all levels
  • Molded strap tabs allow quick and easy strap adjustments
  • Available only in sleeve design
  • Brace length is 16”

Recover


  • Improves joint mechanics in both surgical and non-surgical knee
  • Immeasurable comfort; Hi10 (high tenacity nylon/spandex fabric—posterior) offers unmatched comfort and fit
  • Just plain “easy;” molded strap tabs allow quick and easy strap adjustments to deliver a secure and comfortable fit
  • “Cooler” experience; advanced spacer fabric promotes a “cool” environment for activities on all levels

Train both knees with One Brace


  • Preventative use for non-contact sports with FourcePoint Technology
  • 60 percent decrease in non-contact ACL injury rate in both knees (one brace protects both knees)
  • Training effects retained by about 50 percent while not wearing the brace

Questions on DonJoy Playmaker II FourcePoint

Sort by Descending
  • From Deidre East at 10/31/2013 2:00 PM
    • What is the difference between the Playmaker II FourcePoint and the DonJoy Playmaker II Knee Brace? Is it a difference in the hinge range of motion? Also, are these sleeves with the velcro tightening straps?
    • Deidre East,
      The difference between the Playmaker II and the Playmaker II FourcePoint is the FourcePoint hinge. FourcePoint Technology was developed to further protect the ACL. The patented FourcePoint hinges are designed to react during leg extension and offer an increasing resistance in the last 35 degrees of extension, in order to reduce extension shock and increase posterior tibial loads. The hinge has three adjustment settings to vary the amount of resistance to meet the specification of the physician's protocols and/or the patient's comfort.
      The Playmaker II with standard hinge can be a wrap around or a sleeve with the Velcro strapping. The Playmaker II FourcePoint comes only in the sleeve option.
      Thank you for your question and for contacting DJO.

    • I just had acl and meniscus surgery. my doctor told me I could go back to playing tennis here in a few months. and I was looking for a type of sports brace that I would still have mobility when I play. any suggestions?
    • Skylar
      Since you just had surgery, you should look at the rigid ligament knee braces. The DonJoy FullForce ligament brace would be the best brace for you to allow you to play tennis. The brace has a fourcepoint hinge and our four-points of leverage strapping system that will give you the protection you need. Both of these technologies have been clinically proven to reduce ACL tears up to 50%. Take a look at the brace here: http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-fullforce-ligament-knee-brace
  • From Aaron at 5/10/2014 9:17 PM
    • I had ACL reconstruction and menisectomy on my left knee before and now whenever i play i can feel some instability. I can play basketball but cannot fully trust exerting 100% pressure on my left knee especially running fast then jumping off my left leg. I also I believe my MCL was injured at the same time before (but was never repaired) and maybe causing to the instability

      Is the playmaker II appropriate for my injury? What is the difference of playmaker v.s. playmaker II?
    • Aaron
      If your ACL Reconstruction was a year or less ago then you should be considering a rigid knee brace such as the DonJoy Full Force ligament knee Brace: http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-fullforce-ligament-knee-brace If the surgery was long er than a year ago then the playmaker II can work. The Playmaker II has a lower profile hinge, different cooler material and easier strap ends than the original Playmaker. The Playmaker II comes in the fourcepoint hinge which the Playmaker does not
  • From Aaron at 5/21/2014 12:48 AM
    • In addition to my previous question..

      Does the Playmaker II Fourcepoint also provide support for MCL and LCL instabilities?

      Does the Playmaker II provide support for ACL?

      I had ACL reconstruction and Menisectomy more than 5 yrs ago and now I still feel instability in my knee. I know my MCL/LCL was also injured so I would like support for it as well.

      Is the playmaker II or playmkaer II fourcepoint more applicable for me?
    • Aaron
      The playmaker will give support for all of your ligaments including the MCL and the LCL. The Fourcepoint hinge is specifically for the ACL but having a hinge of any kind will support the MCL and LCL
  • From joe t at 8/21/2014 6:26 PM
    • I tore my meniscus playing football and I was wondering if this would be a good brace for my injury and is ot for contact sports such as football
    • Joe
      As I answered previously the Playmaker is a acceptable brace to wear for a meniscus tear and you can wear it playing football. If you are asking what is the best brace to get for contact sports to prevent injury then the answer would be the DonJoy Armor with fourcepoint hinge. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-armor-knee-brace-with-fourcepoint-hinge
  • From Josh Grim at 9/27/2014 10:00 AM
    • I just started my new job. I will be working 8 hrs a day & I am up & down for most of my day. I will also be walking on a avg. of 8-10 miles a day. I tore my acl 15 yrs ago & I'm just starting to notice some arthritis pain. I was wondering if the playmaker 2 fourcepoint would be a good fit for me.
    • Josh
      The Playmaker II with fourcepoint will provide moderate support to the knee and the fourcepoint hinge resists extension slightly to protct the ACL. You may not need that hinge since your just wearing this brace for work. The standard hinge will be sufficient support for mild athritis. If you are experiencing instability this brace would be great but if you are experiencing pain in the front of the knee you might want to take a look at the Reaction Web Knee brace. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-reaction-knee-brace The Reaction is for those who have mild arthrits and may suffer from anterior knee pain. It helps decrease the pain
  • From Zach at 1/28/2015 1:18 PM
    • I have a partial ACL tear and was recommended to rehab and brace. I play basketball, just open gym or an occasional league here and there. I was wondering if the playmaker II forcepoint would be a good brace? And also what size to get, my measurements (checked a couple times, different people even) 20 1/2 thigh, 15 calf, and 16 1/2 knee.
    • Zach
      The Playmaker II with the fourcepoint hinge is a very good choice. The brace will protect your knee after rehab and will train both knees to avoid the dangerous position in which the ACL is stressed the most. With that brace you should go with the medium
  • From Elisha Anderson at 2/2/2015 1:27 PM
    • I have a torn ACL and a meniscus tear. Would you recommend DonJoy Playmaker II or the Fource Point. I am pre-op with no date for surgery yet and still wanting to do sports and exercise.

      Thank you,

      Elisha
    • Elisha
      I would suggest the Fource Point brace as it has more stability in it with the rigid frame, fourcepoint hinge and strapping system. This brace would be much better for you while waiting for surgery and continuing activity.
  • From Sean Mathieu at 4/18/2015 2:29 PM
    • I had microfracture and meniscus cleanup surgury 9 months ago. I also had a moderate tear to my ACL, and a mild to moderate tear of my MCL and LCL that were not reconstructed. I was an avid runner before this and am looking to get back into in. What brace would you recommend for the best ACL support but also all around knee stability?
    • Sean
      The Playmaker II Fource point will give your knee the all around support you are looking for as well as ACL protection. The hinge is specifically designed to help train the knee to avoid that dangerous position in which the ACL can be stressed. You can wear this brace while running and it should be comfortable.
