I had a badly torn meniscus in my right knee 5 years ago sustained playing tennis. This was repaired during arthroscopy and I had physio and worked on rebuilding muscle lost whilst waiting for the operation.
I am 66 years old fairly fit for my age – having participated in various sports all my life – including skiing for more than 40 years. I had not skied or played much tennis since the operation as I had lost confidence, as well as strength in my right knee.
After working with John and talking to the Donjoy people, I decided to buy their brace which was custom made, intending to use it for skiing and tennis.
I went skiing in January, the first time for 5 years and wore the brace everyday. It was fantastic. I hardly felt it at all and it gave me the confidence to ski
for several hours each day, for the whole week without pain. That was something I had feared I might never do again.”
