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
    exoskeletal support.
  • 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.
