Orthotics – Knee Bracing
Why top professionals choose CTi for Snowboarding
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 snowboarders. The resulting brace is the perfect blend of support and function, designed to help you rehab and ride safely after a knee injury.
Snowboarders have unique demands and anatomy. CTi features specific design advantages and/or adjustments that can be made to optimize performance for snowboarding, including:
- A basic frame design that functions well for snowboarding. 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
- The upper portion of the CTi brace frame can be flared out to
accommodate larger quads (common among snowboarders)
and to reduce rubbing and bruising when landing tricks in
deep flexion (squat).
- 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 layers and outerwear.
- CTi has no rigid components across the posterior (back) side
of the brace, so you won’t experience pinching or cramping
when squatting to land a trick or sitting on a lift.
- CTi can be manufactured to be shorter, longer, thicker or
thinner based upon your height and weight.
