We also offer Donjoy custom-made knee braces for ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tears, PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) tears, MCL/LCL (medial/lateral collateral ligament) tears, post reconstructive knee surgery and arthritis.

These carbon-fibre braces are light, comfortable and strong, and are made exactly to your measurements. Turnaround time can be as little as a few days from taking the measurements to receiving the knee brace! We find that patients who opt to use a custom knee brace have improved stability and confidence. Best of all, these custom knee braces are usually covered by extended healthcare plans.

The custom Defiance is DonJoy's flagship knee brace. With clinically proven technology including the 4-Points-of-Leverage System plus innovative, high-tech materials and design, this lightweight brace provides durable support for moderate-to-severe ACL, PCL, MCL and LCL instabilities. The low-profile design fits comfortably underneath clothing and sports uniforms, including hockey and football gear. As the strongest of DonJoy's functional braces, the custom, carbon composite Defiance is recommended for high-collision sports, while its featherweight materials and custom fit make it an ideal brace for daily living, as well.

Available with the LoPro FourcePoint Hinge, Defiance is the only brace clinically proven to protect the ACL. Defiance technology is on the field, on the court, on the slopes and in the water, actively protecting knees and providing confidence to those who wear it. First introduced in 1992, DonJoy has produced more than a million braces; in college football alone, 22 of the Associated Press Top 25 teams use the Defiance knee brace. Defy the status quo; choose your Defiance color!
