McDavid makes sports medicine, sports protection, and performance apparel for active people and athletes. We are relentless in our pursuit of preventing injuries and enhancing performance. Our story began in 1969, when Dr. Robert F. McDavid Jr., the company's namesake and founder emeritus, created the first widely used protective knee brace for football. Today, McDavid products top the recommendation lists of pro athletes, sports medicine professionals and athletic trainers.


To be the must-have factor in every athlete’s training, confidence and success.
