Donjoy braces have begun in top sport! Experience the difference with a Donjoy brace!
DJO has its origins in top sport. The company was founded in 1978 in the California garage of Mark Nordquist, an American football player for the Philadelphia Eagles. Mark draped an old inner tube around his unstable knee to give it extra support. Together with two friends, he then started to explore the possibilities of neoprene. Initially the company was called DonJoy, after the women Donna and Joy. The first products were “knee sleeves” made from the neoprene of old wetsuits. This innovative idea caught the eye and the company soon embarked on a research and development program that would change braces production forever.
History of Donjoy
In 1987 DonJoy was sold to Smith & Nephew Inc. ProCare was subsequently purchased in 1995. As Smith & Nephew's "brace and aids department" developed 4 high-quality knee braces, including the Defiance on the Legend. These braces brought DonJoy to the attention. The Defiance became the primary brace for the company. The Defiance is a custom knee brace specially designed for active adults and teens with serious knee joint instability. This knee brace is fully adapted to the individual wishes of the patient. It is a less visible, light knee brace with a lifetime warranty. Top athletes started to use the brace because they were convinced that they would be able to practice their sport again. Meanwhile, the Legend had developed into the best ready-to-wear brace for active adults and adolescents. These 2 products formed the basis for the future success of the company and it is now a leading manufacturer of orthopedic products. DJO and the department of the
