If you've suffered a knee injury, movement in the knee tends to exacerbate the problem and could even lead to a more serious injury. The Donjoy Deluxe Hinged Knee Brace provides mild-to-moderate control of the medial and lateral knee ligaments. This helps stabilise the knee to speed up your recovery, making the support particularly suited to you if you want to return to your training schedule as quickly as possible.
Who Can Make Gains with the Donjoy Deluxe Hinged Knee Brace?
Made from durable, lightweight fabric and available in a pull-on or wraparound style, the brace is made of a unique nylon core and polyester fabric that improves airflow. This feature makes the support ideal for athletes who require a little extra support as it allows your knee to remain cool even when you're hotting up!
Knee injuries can have a severe impact on your quality of life and athletic ability. Thankfully, the Donjoy Deluxe Knee Brace compresses the knee to help prevent MCL and LCL instabilities while also aiding the healing process of pre-existing injuries. The support is suitable for a range of sports, including golf, tennis, football, and many more.
Sizing Information for the Donjoy Deluxe Hinged Knee Brace
To ensure a perfect fit, please measure the circumference of your thigh in the area shown in the image below. We recommend taking the measurement from 15cm above the knee cap.
Once you have this measurement, please consult the sizing chart below to get the perfect size brace for your leg.
|Knee Brace Size

What If My Measurements Fall On a Sizing Boundary?
If your measurement means you fall on a sizing boundary, we recommend you select the larger size for optimal comfort and a safe level of compression.
For example, if the circumference of your thigh was 53cm, we would recommend you select a size Large.
Our Top Sizing Tips
- The Donjoy Deluxe Hinged Knee Brace is designed to provide a compressive fit to maximise rehabilitation and recovery
- If you fall on a sizing boundary, please select the large of the two sizes
- When measuring, run a flat tape measure from the centre of the knee cap up 15cm toward the thigh
What If I'm Concerned About Tightness?
If you correctly measured the circumference of your thigh, your purchased brace should provide a snug and compressive fit. If you're still concerned about tightness, we recommend selecting a size larger than your measurements indicate.
What Are the Benefits of a Snug Fitting Brace?
In order to correctly align the patella and surrounding ligaments, any brace you wear following an injury or during rehabilitation needs to provide compression. This encourages blood flow to the ligaments and tendons surrounding the knee which in turn means your injury heals quicker than it would without a compressive brace.
How Compressive Is a Donjoy Knee Brace?
In order to achieve healing and encourage rehabilitation following an injury, any brace you wear must provide a snug fit. The Donjoy Deluxe Knee Brace comes equipped with two straps, allowing you to adjust the tightness above and below the knee.
The brace itself fits over the knee joint, creating compression and keeping the knee in a fixed position thanks to twin condyle pads located at either side of the joint.
Available in Two Different Styles
Available as either a pull-on sleeve or as a wraparound support, the Donjoy Deluxe Hinged Support is highly versatile. If you have already suffered from an injury to the knee, it is advised that you purchase the wraparound version, as this can easily be put on without further damage or discomfort to the area.
How Do I Fit the Donjoy Hinged Knee Brace?
- Pull-on Style Brace: Simply insert your foot through the brace hole and adjust at the knee until comfortable.
- Wrap-around Brace: Lay the brace flat on a stable surface and place your extended knee over the fabric. Wrap both straps around and adjust tightness until compression is achieved.

Double Strap Design
To ensure your brace doesn't ride up or dislodge itself, Donjoy have equipped the Deluxe Hinged Brace with twin straps located above and below the knee joint. Each strap uses a hook and loop fastening that runs around the circumference of the leg, allowing you to adjust tightness until a comfortable fit is achieved.
Twin Condyle Pads
Found only on the wrap-around variation of the brace are twin condyle pads. If either pad is dislodged, simply adjust the position of the fabric section of the brace and reposition each pad against the side of the knee until correction support is achieved.
Located at either side of the brace, they keep the knee in a fixed and stable position. This suspended position keeps the knee in place and allows healing to continue whilst you remain active.
Lightweight and Breathable
The Deluxe Hinged Knee Brace is constructed with a unique nylon core and polyester Lycra fabric to improve airflow in the area. This helps you remain comfortable throughout use. This breathable design is ideal if you suffer from allergic reactions to neoprene or for use in warmer weather during the summer months.
