  • Patent number: 5707347
    Abstract: An impact-dispersing knee brace consisting of an inner frame or skeleton and an outer protective shell. Both are affixed to side supports with the supports being hinged to provide flexibility to the knee. The double wall construction helps disperse impact forces, especially side impact forces, throughout the device. The outer shell also protects the knee-cap and back of the knee when the knee is extended and prevents the leg from hyperextending. A spring-biased hinge mechanism allows for slight movement and give in the device.
