Innovation, leadership, quality products and a desire to be the best is what made DonJoy the industry leader in ligament bracing.

Once again, they present the latest result of their continuous search to develop products that protect and serve the patient even better. The FourcePoint Technology enhances the DonJoy Four-point of Leverage design by damping knee joint extension, which improves the mechanical performance of the brace and reduces shear forces at the knee.

The DonJoy FourcePoint utilises a spring mechanism in the hinge to apply gradually increasing resistance during knee extension. The hinge engages in the last 25 degrees of extension relative to the extension stop. This resistance serves three critical roles: reduce at risk knee position, increases posterior load applied by the brace and eliminating the extension shock.
