I was thinking of purchasing a new set of knee braces but I have some questions. First I will tell you a little about my situation: I currently have a generation 2 brace on my right leg. I have a torn ACL on that knee.(which I have been living with for over 10 yrs) I have torn cartilage on my left knee (new injury) that I am waiting to get cleaned up. I currently just wear a knee guard on that knee. I want a set of matching knee braces that will protect my ACL problem as well as protect my other knee from further damage. My options could be to spring for another generation 2 ($1200) or go to a different style of brace for both knees. Any suggestions??
