This is the best knee brace for torn ligaments. Award winning design offers functional rehabilitation of anterior and posterior cruciate ligament tears (ACL & PCL), injuries to the collateral ligaments (MCL & ACL), or surgery to the capsular ligament or meniscus, ligamentous or degenerative instability and hyperextension prevention.

Wearing a good functional knee brace early on after an operation permits earlier mobilization from increased perception of stability, allowing a safer restoration to full loading and better return to normal daily activities and return to work.

This is the best knee brace for torn ligaments. Offers functional rehabilitation of anterior and posterior cruciate ligament tears (ACL & PCL), injuries to the collateral ligaments (MCL & ACL), or surgery to the capsular ligament or meniscus, ligamentous or degenerative instability and hyperextension prevention.

Wearing a good functional knee brace early on after an operation permits earlier mobilization from increased perception of stability, allowing a safer restoration to full loading and better return to normal daily activities and return to work.

Individuals who undergo ACl tear reconstruction have a high incidence of postural control deficits and re-tearing of the ligament occurs in almost 25% of patients. Functional knee braces are best used to help maintain optimal balance and reduce chances of re-injury by providing mechanical support. It is also possible that support enhances nerve function to increase joint position sense. Through this mechanism, those who experienced ACL tear reconstruction maintain optimum balance ability and decrease the future risk of ACL tears.

knee ligament injury

A study in the 2012 journal of Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology & Arthroscopy investigated the effect of a functional knee brace on ground reaction forces. The authors found significantly lower ground reaction force using the brace, indicating prevention of traumatic forces and protection of knee joint ligaments.

A 2012 study in the International Journal of Sports Medicine found a significant reduction in laxity of the knee from 14 to 33% and improved balance for those with ACL rupture using a brace, compared with those not using a brace.

A 2013 study in the Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine found that bracing decreases excessive rotation of the tibia in patients with a deficient ACL in high demand activities. The authors indicated enhanced rotational stability of the knee and postulated an important role for functional bracing in the prevention of further knee pathology.

Ease Of Use

While professional assistance is required for best fitting and customization, once this is done, the ligament knee brace is very easy to put on and take off. With frontal contact, you don’t slide into the brace; just place it over your leg and fasten the closures, which are numbered in the order you fasten them.

Features:

  • Low profile polycentric hinges are adjustable for limiting motion range without tools (stops included)
  • 15 inch length for superior control
  • Thermoformed flexible shells contour the leg for a custom fit and improve patient comfort
  • Low profile, quick release mechanisms and simple strap numbering eases patient use
  • Ultra plush padding for the best patient comfort
