The DonJoy Playmaker Hinged Knee Brace is suitable for mild to moderate ACL, PCL, MCL, and LCL knee instabilities and sprains. The Playmaker brace is the ideal product for those with a knee sprain or instability and needing additional support for sports participation or daily activities. Features a low profile, versatile straps, and polycentric medial (inside of the knee) and lateral (outside of the knee) hinges with contoured condyle shells to provide intermediate-level support to the knee ligaments and joint. This pull-on sleeve style brace can be used in contact sports and is available in black neoprene, with or without a popliteal cut out (neoprene is cut out in the back of the knee to allow more movement and prevent pinching), and in a variety of sizes to fit every athlete's needs.
