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

MANAGING ACL INJURIES

Your options for managing your ACL injury depend on several factors, including how severe the injury is and your lifestyle. Read More...

"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.
