What is a Functional Knee Brace?

A rigid shell brace which extends from above the knee in the mid-thigh region to below knee at the bottom of the calf muscle. The shells are lined with a thin cushioning material. The thigh and calf shells are connected by joints which can be set to control the range of motion (movement) available at the knee joint. The thigh and calf shells are secured with velcro straps. Design varies depending on what condition it is being used to treat, often ACL/PCL/MCL/LCL or combined instabilities.

What does it do?

It applies controlling forces to stabilise the knee joint and also provides physical protection from impact to the knee.
