This pull-on sleeve style brace can be used in contact sports and features polycentric hinges and sewn-in pull-up loops for easy application, comfort, and an optimal fit.

This fabric provides compression and support, yet allows for breathability. It is ideal for patients who have allergies or irritations to neoprene or live in warm weather climates.
Q. My son is a high school football player and suffered a mild MCL sprain in his knee. Would this be a good brace for him?
A. This brace is suitable for most mild to moderate MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) injuries and contact sports activities. Depending on your son's size and position you may also want to consider a longer knee brace such as the Playmaker or even one of the heavy-duty options we have available for lineman and larger/stronger players.
