What Should I Do If My Measurements Don't Line Up?
If for example, your thigh measurement indicates large and your calf measurement indicates a medium, we would recommend selecting the larger size for maximum comfort and correct compression.
How Tight Is a Donjoy Playmaker Knee Brace?
Designed to provide an incredible level of compression, the Donjoy Playmaker is designed to fit tightly. Despite the Donjoy Playmaker requiring a tight fit to correctly heal the knee, if you are still concerned about tightness, we recommend selecting a size up.
Should I Select a Size Up?
We would only recommend selecting a size up if any of your measurements conflict, or if you are concerned about tightness due to a medical condition. If followed correctly, the recommended measurements taken at three different points should ensure that a tailored and accurate fit is achieved.
How Do I Correctly Fit the Donjoy Playmaker II Brace?
In order to fit your Donjoy Playmaker II correctly, please follow the instructions below:
- Undo all straps so they are loose
- Place your foot through the bottom hole and pull the brace up toward the thigh
- Adjust the brace so the patella hole is positioned over the head of the knee care
- Ensure both condyle pads are located either side of your knee

Twin Condyle Pads
The Donjoy Playmaker uses twin condyle pads to reinforce stability and prevent the knee and surrounding ligaments from rattling around inside the joint. 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.
