The Powercentric Hinged Polycentric Knee Brace, by Jobst, is an advanced, reinforced knee brace made for those who need support for mild to moderate ligament strains, sprains, and injuries to the meniscus. This includes those whose ACL or PCL ligaments were torn or damaged from side-to-side impacts, hyperextention, or who simply need maximum stability for general knee stability.
This brace is a step up from the Jobst Safe-T-Sport Neoprene Knee Brace with Composite Hinges in that it has a polycentric hinge support that has added protection against lateral impacts. But like the composite hinged Safe-T-Sport, the Powercentric knee brace includes a built-in stop to prevent the knee from hyperextending as well as a soft sports neoprene sleeve to slip into.
This advanced knee support with its polycentric hinges allow a full range of motion and are lightweight and durable. They are made of ultra-strong composite material and include contoured condyle shells for added side protection during activity. And on the back of the brace is an open space to allow airflow to the knee as well not having the problem of material bunching and irritating the skin.
The brace has four straps rather than the traditional two. This will allow an even greater degree of secured placement on both the upper and lower leg portions of the brace. The straps are also hook and loop style so just rip the strap off and cinch it up.
