How Donjoy 4-Point Braces Protect The ACL Deficient Knee?

0

Patients with an ACL deficient knee are havingan anterolateral instability that causes “giving way” of the knee. Trying to “de-rotate” and control instability of the ACL deficient knee in a direct way with a brace is very hard to do. Therefore the DJO ligament braces try to stabilise the knee in an indirect way through the biomechanical 4-point design. The 4-point system is clinically proven to be the most effective way to prevent anterior translation of the tibia.By effectively reducing or preventing (*) anterior translation the 4-point brace in an indirect way avoids or reduces the anterolateral instability (endorotation) in ACL deficient knees and allows the patients to regain knee stability.
