Custom Knee & Hip Bracing

Our bracing specialists choose the best brace for YOU based on your injury, recovery status and lifestyle demands. We will accurately choose, fit and adjust braces to fit each individual.

Prophylactic bracing is a very important piece to the prevention rehabilitation puzzle, allowing for the ongoing support of rehabilitation to a joint or muscle after overcoming injury. Bracing can also be a very effective pain modulation technique when prescribed appropriately decreasing the load on joints, stress on ligaments and tendons thereby directly reducing pain. In many cases, bracing can still allow for enough mobility, agility and dexterity to continue with the activities of your lifestyle.

Interactive Bracing Guide

In some cases bracing or lack thereof can be a large component in the determination of the timeline in which an athlete can return to play or an individual can return to work safely and effectively.

Our bracing specialists are trained in the most up to date research and technology to know what brace is most appropriate for your condition and you as an individual. From custom to off the shelf, crutches etc. we have it all!

KNEES

A breathable knee brace with hard stays that provides mild to moderate medial/lateral stability.

Provides maximum medial-lateral support by reinforcing the MCL and LCL of the knee while closely simulating the natural tracking of the knee joint.

Applies pressure to the patellar tendon to relieve pressure. Adjustable straps allow for customizable fit without affecting circulation.

The elastomeric web is an innovative solution that absorbs shock, disperses energy and shifts pain away from the knee joint. Ideal for those with patellofemoral pain syndrome as it stabilizes the patella on all sides to bring it into the proper tracking position.

A soft, customized fit compression brace that helps to relieve anterior knee pain by applying pressure to the patellar tendon.

This brace provides medial and lateral stability to the knee, while resisting distal migration with an internal SkinLoc pad. The hard metal stays on both sides of the joint reinforce MCL and LCL ligamentous structures.

A lightweight brace with strapping system to provide patella control with adjustable tension control. Ideal for patella subluxation, patello-femoral syndrome, or patellar tendon injuries. An option for patella tilt control is available.

A compressive sleeve with open patella for light support of minor sprains, strains and daily use.

This buttress design applies continuous pressure to the patella during full range of motion of the knee to aid in the treatment of patellafemoral dysfunction. Adjustable straps come from the buttress to allow for the desirable amount of pressure to be applied to the patella. Removable hinges also allow for medial and lateral stabilization of the knee joint.

A custom-made, lightweight knee brace for moderate to severe knee injuries and instabilities. Available for MCL injuries, ACL injuries or an unloading version for osteoarthritic knees. The custom carbon fiber composite is lightweight; the low-profile design fits comfortable under clothing, and is available in more than 40 frame colours and graphics. It incorporates swivel strap tabs plus a medial swooping thigh; a diagonal bend on the inside of the thigh section provides clearance for the other leg.

Unloads the affected (osteoarthritic), painful side of the knee using a 3-Point Leverage System. The thigh and calf shells account for two points of leverage, while the Dynamic Force Strap (diagonal strap above the knee) provides the third. This system “unloads” the pressure from the affected area, providing a reduction in pain. Regular use of the brace may even slow the degenerative process, as the area receives less load on a daily basis. It has a flexible, low-profile that contours to your anatomy and allows for use under clothing.

Ideal for normal daily activities as well as athletic endeavors. The AirTech® frame pads create windows and channels to allow for cooling. The Pivot Point strap pads allow the straps to contour the leg to provide a comfortable fit and suspension of the brace.

The only dual-upright dynamic brace on the market. This brace creates a load across the joint when the knee is straight and reduces the load on the medial joint line as the knee flexes. The brace is working when the patient is bearing weight and reduces force when sitting to alleviate pressure on the knee when unloading isn’t necessary.

CALF

Thin, breathable material that provides excellent compression to ease the pain in injured calves or shins.
