Orthotics – Knee Bracing
Why top professionals choose CTi for Skateboarding
CTi braces are medical grade products, covered by most insurance plans with a doctor’s prescription. Whether custom or off-the-shelf, every CTi ligament brace benefits from the input of medical professionals and feedback from professional skaters. The resulting brace is the perfect blend of support and function, designed to help you rehab and ride safely after a knee injury.
Skaters have unique demands and anatomy. CTi features specific
design advantages and/or adjustments that can be made to
optimize performance for skating, including:
- A basic frame design that functions well for skating. The CTi is
the only ligament knee brace that captures the tibia, locking
down securely on the tibial crest. The rigid upper and lower
arms combine with the hinges, condyle pads and straps to
properly align the knee joint and provide an accurately-tracking
- CTi can be ordered with an Anti-Migration System (AMS) at
no additional charge. This comfortable neoprene padding
configuration virtually eliminates brace slippage, eliminating
the annoying hassle of having to constantly adjust your brace
under your pads.
- Streamlined frame shape and hinge design (especially on the
medial side) contour closely with the leg. This keeps the brace
very low-profile and able to be worn under pads or pants.
- CTi has no rigid components across the posterior (back) side of
the brace, so you won’t experience pinching or cramping when
pushing, pumping or landing tricks in deep flexion (squat).
- CTi can be manufactured to be shorter, longer, thicker or
thinner based upon your height and weight.
