About the DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee

Offered in a wraparound or sleeve option, the DonJoy Economy Hinge Knee brace is designed to give your knee mild medial-lateral stability. The wraparound style makes it easy to fit any size/shape leg. This brace is ideal for individuals with mild MCL, LCL or PCL injuries, OA, previous meniscus tear, contusions or patella instability. It's also suitable for people who've had surgery on their knee recently and athletes who participate in contact sports. The neoprene and drytex (only available with the wraparound style) material makes this brace breathable and comfortable for all-day wear. Can be ordered with a popliteal cutout behind the knee where the brace material has been removed in an oval cutout to reduce bunching up of material behind the knee.

Brace too small even though I followed directions for sizing.
Need to return and get larger size. No instructions on how to do this.

Thread coming out

The brace fits great and works. The only problem I have is many strings are coming off the straps. . I’m afraid if it continues I won’t have any straps left.

Did not work for me

Three stars for the fact that it appears to be a well-made product, but it didn't work for me. I'm a heavy woman, with large thighs, and it was impossible to find a tolerable way to wear this brace. At a comfortable binding, it became too loose and quickly slipped down my leg, but if I tightened it enough to keep it in place at the top, it cut off my circulation to the point that I started to lose feeling in my foot. And I didn't find the hinges comfortable or helpful, in fact some piece of it (or the stitching?) poked into the side of my leg and just added to the general discomfort. I'll have to stick with my cheap elastic version, which seems to do the job better in my case.
