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.


Why Playmaker II FourcePoint?


  • 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

Recover


  • FourcePoint Technology increases flexion angles (minimizes time spent in “at risk” position
  • 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)(9)
  • Training effects retained by about 50 percent while not wearing the brace

Questions on DonJoy Playmaker II FourcePoint

Sort by Ascending
  • From Keith at 11/11/14 7:34 PM
    • Back in July I landed wrong (beach volleyball) and ended up fracturing the top of my tibia where the ACL joins, but no ligament tears (lucky). Almost all the pain is gone now and I want to get back into playing, but with a brace. Would the Playmaker II Fourcepoint be a good one to use? Or any other recommendations?
    • Keith
      The Don Joy Playmaker II would be a great choice for protecting the knee from future injury. The Fourcepoint hinge will train both knees to land correctly and avoid the dangerous position that the knee gets into when the ACL is torn.
  • From Bob at 11/1/14 11:21 PM
    • Does the Playmaker II forcepoint come in the spacer material? I don't see any material options in the ordering area?
    • Bob
      The Playmaker II with the fourcepoint hinge ONLY comes in the spacer material
  • From RSCOT at 10/28/14 4:35 AM
    • how do I go about specifying which I order, the wrap around or the neoprene? I only saw a selection option for the size? I found on the Don Joy website the product code for the sleeve in the size I want but don't know how to go about ordering the playmaker II with the sleeve and not the wrap around

      To the right you will choose size, style material, and sleeve or wrap around
  • From Theo at 10/12/14 9:48 PM
    • Hi, I'm sixteen years old. I play football. I was told by the doctor last year I had torn my acl and mcl. I have returned to my football team this year. I play the entire game, and I am in high contact positions. If I am hit while having my bad knee in the lead it features a horrible crackle on the outside of it. After this happens I am able to play a few minutes later for the rest of the game but then after my knee starts to swear so much it doesn't look real. I am not going to quit anytime soon. I am currently wearing a BRIG hinged knee brace that was at my physical therapists office. My question is what brace would you say will protect my ligaments and allow me to play at full force while avoiding this cracking and the knee giving out? I am a Left Guard and Middle Line backer. And in addition would it be bad to have surgery, or bad to wait. I believe that I may cause permanent damage to my knee while I continue playing. So I desperately need advice.
    • Theo
      Since you have not had surgery your knee is at risk for further damage even wearing a brace. You should not be playing football. Our Custom brace is called the DonJoy Defiance Knee brace. It is not available on BetterBraces you would need to purchase through DonJoy Canada 866-866-5031. This brace is carbon fiber and is the strongest brace we make. The fourcepoint hinge is the hinge that should be on your Defiance. That hinge adds some resistance to extension which protects a intact ACL. I would consult with your physician about weather you should be playing since your knee sells up after getting hit.
  • From Josh Grim at 10/2/14 3:05 PM
    • I emailed you last week about the playmaker 2 fourcepoint kneebrace. What I forgot to include in my ? is I do suffer from occasional weakness & my knee locks up, especially when temps get cooler. Is the playmaker 2 fourcement a good fit for me or would the playmaker 2 be a better option.
    • Josh
      The playmaker Ii with the fourcepoint hinge will give protection to the knee for all instabilities. The fource point hinge will give resistance in extension of the knee. Overall the brace will protect your knee as will the standard hinge will do
  • From Josh Grim at 9/27/14 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 joe t at 8/22/14 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 Mau at 7/22/14 12:11 PM
    • Dear Sir/Madam,

      I have an injury on both my ACL and LCL. I am on a waiting list to get my operation (in two years) in the mean time my doctor recommended me to buy a knee brace, he recommended the Donjoy defiance 3, but that is way above my budget.
      Could you recommend me another knee brace that will give me support and protection to both my LCL and ACL? So I can start on building muscles and work on my physical therapy without having to be afraid to worsen my injury. I was thinking about a Playmaker brace.
      Also, I live in a very hot and humid, tropical climate (Costa Rica) and was wondering which material you would recommend for me.

      Thank you very much

      Mau
    • Mau
      You will need a brace that is more supportive than the Playmaker. I would suggest one our less expensive rigid ACL braces such as the DonJoy SE 4 Knee Brace http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-legend-se-4-knee-brace This brace will give the support you knee for the ACL and LCL. You will have to go though DJO Costa Rica to order any of our braces, since we do not ship internationally. Here is the contact information:

    • How long is the brace? Does it vary in length depending on size?
    • The brace comes in one length 16 inches
  • From Eliza I. at 7/2/14 8:53 AM
    • I had ACL reconstruction in December of 2012. I also tore my mcl and my meniscus. I do cheerleading and was given a CTI knee brace which slides down my leg constantly, does not give me full support, and does not allow me to tuck/ bend my leg completely. Will the Playmaker II Fourcepoint fix these problems?
    • Eliza
      The playmaker Ii is a sleeve knee brace with the two hinges and you should be able to bend your knee fully. I would suggest getting the spacer material it is lighter and not as hot
  • From Aaron at 5/21/14 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 Aaron at 5/11/14 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 skylar at 1/16/14 7:11 PM
    • 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 Alain at 12/30/13 10:50 AM
    • Hi, is me again. I know you recommend the oa full force knee brace (see above posted question) but that is more than I could afford right now so was thinking of getting this playmaker II fourcepoint or the regular playmaker II. Which one should I get? And which size?
      My measurements, thigh:23 1/2in -- knee: 18in -- calf: 16in
    • Alain
      The regular Playmaker II is fine in Large
  • From Alain at 12/30/13 4:23 AM
    • Hi, I had arthroscopic surgery (partial medial meniscectomy) 4 months ago. The Dr told me that I could resume playing volleyball. After playing I still get some pain on the inside of the knee and have to ice. I play beach volleyball mainly and I'm looking for full range of movement while limiting lateral movement. Which brace should I get.
    • Alain,
      Thank you for your question. You should consider a medial offloading brace. These braces are generally designed for arthritis but can be used for meniscus injuries and bone on bone pain. The FullForce come in an OA (OsteoArthritis) version.
      The unloads will have an adjustable/telescoping hinge on the unaffected side (your lateral) and will on that side to open up the joint capsule on the medial side and alleviate bone on bone pain.
      Here is a link to the OA FullForce at the bottom of the page you will find a video to help better explain the benefits of the OA braces: http://www.djoglobal.com/products/donjoy/oa-fullforce-knee-brace
  • From Deidre East at 10/31/13 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.
