The McDavid Knee Brace With Dual Disk Hinges features an open centred 360˚ padded buttress to isolate and support your patella. It also has bound edges to prevent irritation. In addition to these features, the knee brace has a perforated back panel to facilitate heat and moisture management and keep your knee cool and comfortable for long term wearing comfort.
This brace does not have gears. Instead, each of its sidearms is independently articulated and has cushioned hyperextension stops.
The Knee Brace With Dual Disk Hinges has the lightest hinge that McDavid makes. This hinge has wider arms to facilitate maintaining strength. The brace also has engineered straps that assure a customizable fit.
Except for its binding straps, hinges and cover fabric, this knee brace is constructed entirely from neoprene(CR), a latex free composite. As it is latex free. it reduces the likelihood of adverse medical reaction even if you have a history of latex sensitivity.
The choice of 100% neoprene for the construction of this brace endows it with outstanding resilience, tear resistance and tensile strength. It also enhances its compressive and heat retention capabilities, both of which are essential to its therapeutic performance.
Another benefit from the use of 100% neoprene is the brace’s ability to withstand repeated washing and drying without loss of performance. Despite this, we would recommend air drying this brace for best results over a prolonged period.
This brace offers outstanding Level 3 protection against knee or patellar instability. It will also help treatment of other knee injuries like sprains or strains.
