    • My son has the A22 custom brace for post ACL reconstruction, just want to make sure this impact guard will work with the A22 brace, Thanks.
    • Yes, you can use the DonJoy Impact Guard Knee And Shin Protector with the A22 knee brace.
  • Stef at 9/12/2016 7:19 AM
    • I'm confused as to which braces this is compatible with. I'm looking for something to protect the knee while diving for balls in rec football after a microfracture of the tibial plateau. I also have an old meniscus tear and jumper's knee and was going to go with a reaction brace but I don't think that would be compatible. It would be helpful if there was a link or some way to tell which "hard" braces are compatible. Thanks.
    • The DonJoy Impact Guard Knee And Shin Protector is compatible with any of the DonJoy Rigid Hinged braces, like the Armor, or the FullForce.
  • Gerald at 2/14/2016 8:03 PM
    • Do you sell extra screws to attach the impact guards ? Thanks
    • We do not have replacement screws but the impact guard can be attached to the brace without screws. There is a plastic piece on each side that can slide into the hinge area to keep it in place.
  • Gary at 12/9/2015 9:42 PM
    • Hi, i am using my brace for sports and mountain biking,
      is this attachment easy to install and remove?
    • Yes the Impact Guard is not hard to install on our rigid knee braces and will work on any of them
  • Steve S at 11/24/2015 6:12 PM
    • Will this brace work for a Playmaker II brace? (Mine is actually a few years older, but looks similar to Playmaker II)

      And Must the impact guard be removed in order to take the brace off the knee?
    • Steve
      The Impact will not work with the Playmaker
  • Scott Jones at 10/21/2015 7:49 AM
    • I have a pair of older OA braces (2008, 2010); will this fit these?
    • Scott
      You can use the impact guard on an OA brace as long as the offloading adjustment is Not on the hinge. The guard is attached to the hinges and wraps around the hinges so you would not be able to offload if that adjustment is done at the hinge.
  • 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
  • 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,
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
  • alucard_265 at 1/18/2014 3:46 PM
    • I have this model in size M this device works for this model and size
    • that is correct a medium will work with a medium brace
  • Diane Grohowski at 7/19/2013 7:27 PM
    • daughter just got don joy defiance III post acl reconstruction surgery. I need to find shin guard to fit over brace for field hockey.

      Please advise
    • 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.


      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • chris at 4/13/2012 2:46 PM
    • 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.
  • Michael at 12/22/2010 3:33 PM
    • 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.

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

      Please send us an email @ service@betterbraces.com with your brace serial #. With this we can determine the correct size.
  • Eduardo at 3/23/2010 8:09 PM
    • 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.
  • 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.
