KNEE BRACES

Neoprene or Elastic

Neoprene or Elastic sleeves are anatomically designed, provide warmth, graduated compression and mild support.

Rigid or Functional Braces

Rigid or Functional braces provide the highest level of support and protection. Frame or Shell designs provide a rigid exoskeleton that resist excessive extension or unwanted sideways knee laxity to protect the commonly injured Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL).
Measurements, casts or a digital leg scan of the leg is needed to ensure optimal fit and control.

Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation braces restrict movement in a controlled manner to recover from acute injury or surgery. Management of Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) injuries is common in this style of brace

Hinged Knee Braces

Hinged Knee braces provide medium support against movement resulting from mild knee instabilities, arthritis or low grade ligament injuries.

Osteoarthritis

Specific knee braces for managing Osteoarthritis are designed unload the knee away from the worn knee surfaces reducing pain

Patello-Femoral Braces

Patello-Femoral braces incorporate an internal buttress to influence or control the positioning of a maltracking or subluxing patella (knee cap)
