Playmaker II FourcePoint

Knee injuries can stop you. Preventing injury or re-injury can keep you moving. Playmaker II FourcePoint, engineered by DonJoy, increases flexion angles and reduces the risk of ACL injury. So go ahead and say it; I can recover. I can train. I can play.

Why Playmaker II FourcePoint?

  • Women are 2 to 10x more likely to injure their ACL1
  • A person who has torn their ACL has 15x greater risk of a second ACL injury during initial 12-months after ACL reconstruction2
  • 50 percent of ACL injuries occur in 15-25-year olds3
  • 60-80 percent of ACL injuries are non-contact related4
  • Risk of ACL injury to the opposing knee (opposite knee) is two times that of the reconstructed knee5
  • Psychological factors, primarily fear of re-injury, influence the ability to return to play6

"I have had two major injuries during my career—both ACL tears. There is a lot of pressure inside and outside of schools and organizations to recover quickly, which I appreciate, but it’s up to young athletes, parents and coaches to take steps to recover safely and guard against injury and re-injury. This will only allow for a stronger, better return to sport in the long run."
