ACL brace of choice?
« on: May 30, 2006, 11:46:39 PM »
Hello everyone, just wondered what ACL brace you use and do you like it. My Os is sending me off to the BREG shop to get fitted for an ACL brace and just wondered about other's experiences.

I wore a Townsend for something like 10 years (several different braces during that time) and thought very highly of them. Good fit, excellent service from the company, and my knee felt far more secure in the Townsend than it did in other braces.

They have a number of different models, suitable for just about any sport. Hopefully, they'll have a rep in your area whom you can talk to.
