Orthotics – Knee Bracing

Why top professionals choose CTi for Surfing

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 surfers. The resulting brace is the perfect blend of support and function, designed to help you rehab and ride safely after a knee injury.

Surfers have unique demands and anatomy. CTi features specific design advantages and/or adjustments that can be made to optimize performance for surfing, including:

  • A basic frame design that functions well for • surfing. 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
    in the water.
  • Streamlined frame shape and hinge design (especially on the
    medial side) contour closely with the leg. This keeps the brace
    very low-profile and limits the drag in the water when paddling
    and snapping up on waves.
  • CTi can be used with wetsuits. Simply remove standard padding
    from brace (attached via hook and loop) and apply the brace over
    the top of the wetsuit. The wetsuit replaces the padding.
  • Non-corrosive materials make the CTi ideal for surfing. Simply
    rinse out with fresh water after use in the ocean.
  • CTi can be manufactured to be shorter, longer, thicker or
    thinner based upon your height and weight.
