McDavid Inc. designs and markets sports medicine, sports protection, and performance apparel for active people and athletes. They are relentless in the pursuit of preventing injuries and enhancing performance.
Our story began in 1969 when Dr. Robert F. McDavid created the first widely used protective knee brace for football. After a period of grass-roots growth, the company officially formed in 1980. Today, McDavid products top the recommendation lists of pro athletes, sports medicine professionals and athletic trainers. From our research-backed ankle braces to compression shorts with patented technology, McDavid products address both the broad range and the specific needs of professional – and every day – athletes across a variety of sports.
