Donjoy Reaction Knee Brace
Suffering from knee pain around or behind the kneecap can be frustrating, particularly if you simply want to get on with daily activities. The Donjoy Reaction Knee Brace is designed to help reduce discomfort in the knee by absorbing shock and returning kinetic energy to the knee. This helps cushion the area to protect it against the impact of daily or sporting activities, allowing you to perform at your best.
The Donjoy Reaction Knee Brace is ideal for all levels of activity. This means that you can use the support for walking and gardening, as well as when playing high-intensity sports.

How Does the Brace Work?
The external webbing (or elastic exoskeleton) of the Donjoy Reaction Knee Brace dampens impact forces experienced by the knee joint and disperses this energy across the knee. This helps reduce shock targeted in a specific area. The support is also fitted with an under sleeve so you remain as comfortable as possible.

Is This Support Suitable for Watersports?
This support can assist with the impacts and pain associated with water sports, but if it is used in salt water, it should be rinsed with clean water after each use. It should then be dried, as some components of the brace may wear over time if left waterlogged.
