DonJoy Female Fource Knee Brace
Designed specifically for females and ideally suited for non-contact and contact sports. Females are 3-8 times more likely to sustain an ACL tear than males. In addition, over 70 percent of all ACL injuries occur during non-contact activities, such as cutting, jumping and twisting maneuvers. The DonJoy Female Fource addresses biomechanical factors that have been implicated in the high incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears in females. Females tend to perform cutting and landing maneuvers with their knees and hips in an extended and less protected position. The Female Fource incorporates DonJoy Orthopedics’ FourcePoint hinge technology (enhanced 4-point dynamic leverage system), which has been clinically demonstrated to increase knee flexion angles, limiting the time the knee spends in at-risk positions during activity; therefore, providing females the protection they need. The Female Fource is the first functional knee brace to come with a custom graphics sticker sheet to allow patients to personalize their braces to their own liking. DonJoy’s OTS Female Fource is a lightweight, low profile functional knee brace designed specifically for females and is perfect for the active female returning to sport or the general female population returning to activities of daily living where an OTS brace is required.
