ACL, PCL & MCL Knee Instability Orthotics

A thorough evaluation will be conducted by one of our patient care team members.

Once you and your doctor have decided your course of treatment, our trained practitioners can help you find the brace that fits your daily activities, and then educate you on the operation of your specific orthosis. Everyone’s situation is unique, and our job is to listen to your needs and answer all your questions. Your assigned practitioner will work directly with your care team to provide the most appropriate products for your diagnosis.

Products we use have a unique hinge-to-strapping system in a dual-upright dynamic frame for control of tibial translation, and ideal for ACL and PCL deficient knees. A pivoting gastroc strapping design acts as a “finger-trap,” minimizing brace migration. Quick-release buckles are used for ease of application.

ACL, PCL Dynamic Bracing

For ligament injuries, fractures or other knee instability issues. The primary features with this bracing system is the enhanced control of tibial translation that provides stability at the moment of the clinical need for ACL, PCL or combined ligament injuries. 

For ACL applications (right side, arrow A): When the knee moves into the final 30 degree of extension, the upper calf strap applies a progressively increasing anterior counterforce to align the tibia relative to the femur.

For PCL Applications (left side arrow strap P): When the knee moves deep into flexion, the upper calf strap applies a progressively increasing posterior counterforce to reduce subluxation and maintain proper joint alignment.
