Össur Unloader One

At only half the weight of the original Unloader, Unloader One combines a streamlined, flexible upright with Dual Dynamic Force Straps to generate more unloading leverage than any Unloader to date.

The patient can measure and adjust the amount of unloading needed using the unique ratcheting Dynamic Force Control system. Ossur has revolutionized brace comfort by implementing our proprietary Sensil® Silicone Technology on the liners.

Ossur (Innovation Sports) Custom CTi2

CTi has set the standard for truly custom ligament bracing for more than 20 years.

Now, the CTi line has been expanded to include 3 models! From high to low impact/activity needs, CTi has it covered!

We've redesigned this classic with a host of new improvements like proprietary Sensil® padding that eliminates migration, a flexible lower medial cuff for greater protection against rotational forces and skin-friendly SensEdge overmolding to avoid pressure points.

Find out why CTi knee braces are demanded by top athletes and respected by leading physicians around the world.

Indications & Usage:

  • ACL, MCL, LCL, PCL, rotary and combined instabilities
  • For High-End Use
    For high levels of impact, we recommend the CTi Pro Sport model. Additional carbon fiber and a thicker core structure is used in the frame to provide maximum support and protection against extreme contact.
  • For Moderate to High-End Use
    For moderate to high impact levels of impact, we recommend the CTi Standard model. Carbon composite, rigid frame construction using a thin core structure provides excellent support and protection against moderate to high levels of impact in a lighter design than the CTi Pro Sport.
  • For Low-End Use
    For low levels of impact, we recommend the CTi Vapor model, the lightest CTi model yet. Reduced carbon fiber using a thin core structure provides excellent support and protection against any low to moderate levels of impact.

Ossur (Generation II) Custom Unloader XT

It's no secret - the Unloader technology employs the most effective bracing method to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis. Patients around the world are living active lives again thanks to the Unloader XT custom brace.

This patented design has two features that make it superior to any other OA brace on the market today. One, the Adjustable Dynamic Joint® is a hinge adjustment mechanism that allows the clinician to fine-tune the varus or valgus force needed for optimum pain relief. Second, the Dynamic Force Strap® is a diagonal strap that applies a counteracting force opposite the hinge as the knee goes into extension. When combined, these unique design features create a dynamic 3 Points of Leverage System that is scientifically proven to provide effective pain relief.

Performance Benefits:

  • Custom molded semi-flexible shells are durable, adaptable to leg shape changes, yet rigid enough to contain tissue while force is applied at the knee.
  • Patented ADJ® high-carbon steel hinge is strong enough to unload the pressure from the compartment of the knee. Adjustments are made easily.
  • Patented DFS system enables further adjustability to unloading AND provides rotational control for instability.
  • Easy to apply, comfortable for long-term wear and comes with removable, washable liners.

Indications:

The Unloader XT effectively relieves pain associated with mild to severe unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis.

It is ideal for patients who wish to engage in normal to demanding daily activities and is suitable for a wide range of patient shapes and sizes. Shells are custom painted in your choice of colour (regional options vary).
