CTi Brace

When knee ligament injury occurs, 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 it when in use. Nothing can provide this stability better than the CTi knee brace.

Knee surgeons and top athletes from around the world have used this brace for years and continue to do so.

The CTi provides outstanding knee 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.

ctiSleek, low profile frame design ensures a streamline, low profile fit.

  • The Total Support System ensures joint alignment and functional support of the ACL, PCL and collateral ligaments.
  • Patented Accutrac hinge more accurately mimics the natural movement of the knee.
  • Breathable lining material virtually eliminates brace migration.

The CTi may be custom-made, or off the shelf, therefore suiting the needs of patients of all activity levels.

The CTi custom is generally used for high levels of sport, or for accurate fitting where leg shape abnormalities present a problem.

Custom-made versions offer flexibility with colour and accessories such as the motor-cross kit.

Indications

ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL injuries. Rotary and combined instabilities.

Unloader One OA brace- Pain relief without medication

unloaderone_aloneMany people suffer unnecessarily from knee pain due to osteoarthritis (OA), a degenerative joint disease characterised by the breakdown of cartilage that cushions the bones of the knee.

The Unloader One brace has been designed specifically to relieve pain due to osteoarthritis. The unloader brace is a highly effective, non-invasive solution that offloads the affected compartment of the knee to relieve pain and improve mobility. It is a comparatively economical treatment option, and is suitable for all levels of activity. Research shows this dramatically reduces pain and improves mobility. It is suitable for all levels of activity, from golf, tennis and walking, to more more energetic forms such as cricket, and running. The lightweight, low profile design surpasses previous braces and ensures comfort.

Numerous clinical studies have proved the Unloader concept to be effective in reducing excessive loading on the damaged part of the knee, relieving pain, improving function and reducing further joint damage.

The unloading action of the brace may also counteract the advancement of cartilage abrasion, effectively impeding further progression of the disease.

Brought right up to date with the latest technology, the low profile design and ease of use, overcome typical patient objections to bracing, ensuring excellent compliance and outcomes.

Breathable liners featuring Ossur’s silicone technology virtually eliminate brace migration.

Unloader_One_Brace-CorrectionThe unique ratcheting system allows for measurable and repeatable adjustment of the unloading varus/valgus force by the patient for easier pain management.

Colour coded and ergonomic buckle design with leverage arm enables easy application and removal without the need for cumbersome strap adjustment.

The flexible low-profile upright accommodates the contours of the limb and makes the brace easy to wear under clothing.

A recent testimonial from one of our patients in Cambridgeshire who was fitted with an Unloader: “Cordelia fitted me with an Unloader.  She gave a me a clear demonstration of its correct fastenings and position.  I wear the brace every day and have to my delight, that I no longer require twice daily analgesia.  In fact, I have only taken two doses in the last ten weeks since having the brace! I have been able to increase my level of activity in the way I want to live my life.  Thank you!”
