The McDavid PSII Hinged Knee Brace (429) uses state of the art, lightweight materials to provide the maximum level of protection and support. This brace is ideal for assisting with recovery from lateral (LCL) and medial (MCL) collateral ligament injuries. It's also effective for healing and pain relief in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and cartilage problems. The PSII brace is very effective as a preventive measure, as well as remedial treatment.


How it works:

This brace is fitted with geared, aircraft grade aluminium, polycentric hinges on the inside (medial) and outside (lateral) parts of the brace. These hinges are 15% lighter, and slightly shorter than the A428 Pro Stabiliser Knee Brace. The hinges provide unrestricted 'normal' knee movement, but reduce painful rotation of the joint and tendons. Two stops prevent knee hyperextension. To stabilise the kneecap the PSII brace has a sewn-in patellar buttress. Compression from the buttress helps to ease the pain associated with patellar tendonitis. The PSII Knee Brace is easy to fit and simply pull it up into place over the knee using the straps, then fasten the top and bottom hook and loop closures.
