Extreme sports require knee braces that can keep up with their demanding needs, especially when it comes to helping with injuries like ACL tears and sprains. The Össur CTi OTS Knee Brace has been developed specifically to meet the demands of extreme sports, providing rigid support to knees to aid in the protection and rehabilitation of ligament injuries.
Who Can Make Gains with the Össur CTi OTS Knee Brace?
The CTi OTS uses flexible subshells, providing adjustability for a fantastic fit straight off the shelf, while still ensuring you receive an incredibly high level of protection and support to help ensure that your injury can heal.
Despite the flexible subshells that make up parts of the CTi OTS, the brace still utilises a rigid frame and non-elastic straps to ensure stability and prevent the excessive moments that can contribute to ligament injury.
The Össur CTi OTS Knee Brace is suitable for mild to severe ACL, LCL and MCL sprains and tears.
Natural Motion with AccuTrac® Hinge
To give your knee a natural range of motion, the CTi OTS utilises the AccuTrac hinge. Created after an in-depth analysis of the leg's natural motion, the hinge features a patented four-bar linkage system that accurately recreates the knee's natural movement – exactly as it would be brace-free – to give you the flexibility you need to perform at your best.
Breathable Padding for Improved Comfort
An aerospace brace mesh fabric covered with Sensil® Silicone ensures the CTi's padding is wonderfully breathable for maximum comfort during use. What's more, this almost completely eliminates migration, ensuring that the brace stays in place.
Features and Benefits of the Össur CTi OTS Knee Brace
Through its comprehensive support system, the CTi OTS brace provides total support to knee ligaments. For ACL support, firm contact between the brace and the shin stops forward movement and rotation of the knee, while the non-elastic strap on the thigh give the CTi a counter-force to give better stability. The brace's rigidity across the hinges gives support to the MCL and LCL ligaments either side of the knee to control medial and lateral stability.
