Knee Braces what to expect:
We can fit Ossur knee braces. The two main braces that we recommend are the Cti brace which is used for knee instability and the unloader one OA brace for early arthritis.
The CTI brace can be recommended following knee ligament injury. The knee loses the natural mechanisms which support and stabilise the joint.
In this instance ,a brace may be required to restore stability,to protect the knee from further injury and support when in use
Knee surgeons and top athletes from around the world have used this brace for many years.
The CTI provides outstanding support and has set the standard for ligament bracing for the past 25 years. Thanks to continuous product development the model has been honed and refined to create a modern design that performs better than ever.
The total support System ensures joint alignment and functional support for the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments and collateral ligaments.
It is available in custom made or off the shelf versions,therefore perfectly suiting the needs of patients of all activity levels.
Unloader One OA Brace
The Unloader One brace has been specifically designed to relieve pain due to osteoarthritis. It aims to offload the affected compartment of the knee and research has shown that it reduces pain and improves mobility.
It is suitable for all levels of activity from golf ,tennis and walking to more energetic forms such as cricket and running.The lightweight,low profile design surpasses previous braces and ensure comfort mobility.
