I'm not sure of the brand without looking, but i know it had supports down each side of my knee. Donjoy are a well known recommended brand for good support though so maybe start there

If anybody needs inspiration, check out this documentary by Red Bull TV on Lindsey Vonn's recovery from a very severe knee injury! To come back from such a severe injury and win more World Cup races was an extraordinary achievement.

Well for those with a knee injury there always hope. I had a partial knee replacement in July 2018 and skied in Austria for 6 days in January just gone. After lots of "will it hold up" thoughts I have to report it was brilliant. No pain and held up great, even a few tumbles and no problems (snow was rather deep in lech/Zurs lol). Going to Canada on 23rd Feb and after years of pain I can say I am really looking forward to it being pain free. I really hope your recovery goes well

My son skied last year with a donjoy brace following a knee injury. He had a bad ACL injury however skied all week on all levels including blacks. He's now had his ACL replaced with a hamstring graft and going forward will always wear a brace to ski.
