Custom Knee Braces – Edmonton Made
With on-going developments in technology & materials The Knee Centre is excited to now offer the thinnest and lightest brace ever offered to date manufactured using prepreg carbon fiber! The design shown includes our new Tibial Containment System (TCS). The TCS compliments the brace design by providing greater ACL support as proven in a report completed by the University of Waterloo (2012). This design is available on the Victory, Accelerator, and Bladerunner custom knee braces.
The Neutralizer is for the person with medial or lateral Osteoarthritis. The Neutralizer corrects the knee alignment to a "neutral" position preventing bone on bone contact that creates pain in the knee. This type of brace is often referred to as an "unloader" style arthritis knee brace. This proven technology permits reduction of knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. Increased comfort and stability from a brace can lead to greater mobility and enjoyment of recreational activities. This alternative is a great solution when surgery is not yet an option or will be a long wait.
The Flex X is a cost sensitive option that is manufactured with the same design principles as the Double X. This design also works well for post operative patients. The plastic shells are easily moldable for quick effective adjustments.
The Accelerator is another one of our custom graphite knee orthoses. This design works very well for hyperextension control and for ACL deficient knees. This sleek, open framework design is very comfortable and lightweight.
The Double X knee brace is not like most knee braces. This design offers a tremendous amount of support. If you have multiple ligamentous injuries and need a brace to support your knee then this is the brace for you. The Double X is great for a demanding user and those that participate in outdoor activities.
Motocross Double X
In this version we have altered the traditional Double X design. The most obvious change to the Double X is a molded patella cup that can be easily removed by the rider if not required for other activities. The patella cup can be personally customized to your requirements (i.e. maple leaf, numbers, lettering)
The Bladerunner is a great compliment to our line of knee braces. The design is flexible and has a very low profile. The brace is very lightweight usually weighing around 500 grams. This brace can be used for mild ligament injuries and for hyperextension control.
Prosthetic Knee Orthosis (P.K.O.)
We have taken our traditional Double X design and have incorporated the demands for a Below Knee (B.K.) amputee. This design shall give a B.K. amputee the option of applying the brace to their socket when needed for more demanding activities. The brace is easily applied with velcro and straps.
