BioSkin Hinged Knee Brace


The BioSkin Hinged Knee Brace provides extra ligament support and protection in a breathable design.  The hinged knee brace features Bio Skin's unique material and lightweight bi-centric hinges for medial-lateral support and molded condyle padding for enhanced comfort and performance. The open patella models come with both a circular and a horseshoe shaped buttress than can be inserted into the front and adjusted to provide the correct amount of patella stabilization based on your symptoms.  The wraparound front closure version does not come with a buttress of any kind and is primarily used to provide support for knees with ligament damage only.  The Bio Skin Hinged Knee Skin is made out of thin, breathable, neoprene-free fabric that performs as well as neoprene without stretching out over time.  Four choices of fabrics are available to meet your needs for comfort and performance (see specs tab above for details).  The hinged knee skin is one of the most popular BioSkin hinged knee brace designs available, and can be used for ACL, PCL, LCL, MCL injuries, meniscus tears, arthritis symptoms, as well as, general knee protection for athletics.

Bio Skin Hinged Knee Skin Features:

  • Offered in open patella or front closure versions.
  • Available in four materials: Ultima, 2s, 2sL, and Stratus - see specs tab.  Front closure is available in 2sL only.
  • Provides both ligament support and patella stability. Front closure does not include patella buttresses.
  • Features a lightweight offset bi-centric hinged design that reduces pressure at the knee joint and provides advanced medial and lateral support for the Medial collateral ligament (MCL) and the Lateral collateral ligament (LCL).
  • Note: the pull-up version in Stratus does not come with pull tabs on the top to assist with pulling like the regular Bioskin material and 2SL pull-up models.
  • All BioSkin materials are breathable, latex/neoprene-free, and offer greater durability than neoprene.
  • The product's unique strapping system minimizes brace slippage down the leg and ensures a secure comfortable fit.
