Yesterday, DonJoy Performance, announced the launch of the Bionic Fullstop knee brace to their Bionic line. The Bionic Fullstop provides protection to the ACL for athletes who are recovering or looking to prevent ACL injury.
ACL injuries are unfortunately all too common to the everyday athlete:
The good news is that athletes return to sports even after an ACL injury. However, athletes are not always able to return to the level of play they were at prior to getting hurt. This makes ACL protection even more important to prevent re-injury.
How Does the Bionic FullStop Work?
Fullstop Dampening Hinges
The hinges on the FullStop engage at 145° and come to a full stop, preventing hyperextension at 170°. This full stop keeps your knee out of the “at-risk” position of where most ACL tears tend to happen. The dampening of the hinges help train your muscles to keep your knee, whether brace or un-braced, out of the “at-risk” zone.
Four Points of Leverage
The Four Points of Leverage is DonJoy’s patented strapping system to enhance protection and positioning to the ACL.
Neoprene and Breathable Mesh Combo
The brace itself is made of a combination of neoprene and breathable mesh to maximize comfort through temperature regulation and provide compression.
The inner liner of the knee brace is designed with anti-migration technology to help prevent the brace from slipping or moving during activity.
Adjustable Velcro Straps
Velcro straps make the brace easy to put on and take off. Straps are adjustable for a better fit.
Reflective design enhances visibility in low-light conditions which means you can be seen during late night practices, workouts, and games.
