Bracing allows the patient to control the position of the joint, be it to restrict undesired or potentially harmful motion, or allow desired motion. Custom knee braces are specifically designed and handmade for each individual patient, allowing for a perfect fit and a significant reduction in symptoms. Braces can either be ready to wear off-the-shelf or both our off-the-shelf and custom made knee braces are manufactured using the highest quality processes and materials.

How Custom Knee Braces Help
When used to unload bone-on-bone pressure, custom knee braces gently apply pressure to the unaffected side of the knee, thereby relieving compression in the affected side. The force that is present in the degenerative part of the knee is greatly reduced, providing long-term pain relief and often eliminating the need for surgery or medication. When used to treat ligament issues, custom knee braces stabilize and protect, in a comfortable, lightweight and easy-to-adjust construction.
