When to Wear; Custom Knee Braces

Custom knee braces are created specific to an individual's measurements and constructed with a firm & durable frame made from non-flexible materials such as metal or composite materials. There are many reasons a person may choose to get a custom brace. Here are some of the most common:


1. Enhanced stability: A rigid frame custom knee brace provides optimum

stability to the knee joint, preventing it from excessive movement and minimizing the risk of injury.


2. Post-surgery support: After undergoing knee surgery, wearing a custom knee brace with a rigid frame can aid in the healing process by providing additional support to the weakened or injured joint.


3. Ligament protection: Individuals with ligament injuries, such as ACL tears, can benefit from wearing a rigid frame custom knee brace as it helps to protect and stabilize the affected ligaments during physical activities.


4. Injury prevention: Wearing a custom knee brace with a rigid frame can reduce the risk of knee injuries, especially during high-impact activities or sports, by providing effective support and preventing potentially harmful movements.


5. Pain relief: People suffering from chronic knee pain or conditions like osteoarthritis can experience relief by wearing a rigid frame custom knee brace. The brace provides stability, reduces pressure on the knee joint, and helps alleviate discomfort.


6. Increased confidence during physical activities: Wearing a rigid frame custom knee brace can help individuals regain confidence in their knee's stability, allowing them to engage in physical activities or sports without the fear of injuring themselves further.


7. Rehabilitation support: A rigid frame custom knee brace can aid in the rehabilitation process after a knee injury or surgery by facilitating controlled movement and promoting proper healing.


8. Corrective alignment: Some individuals may have alignment issues with their knees, such as a misalignment or bow-leggedness. Wearing a custom knee brace with a rigid frame can help correct these alignment problems, allowing for better overall knee function.


9. Sports performance enhancement: Athletes who require additional knee support can benefit from wearing a rigid frame custom knee brace, as it can enhance their performance by providing stability, reducing fatigue, and helping prevent injuries.
