Knee Orthosis (Braces)

Pieter M Botha Orthotist & Prosthetist offers a comprehensive line of ligament knee braces manufactured by Össur. They provide high levels of orthotic control for a wide variety of applications from prophylaxis to recovery post injury.  Whether you need a post-operative brace, a semi-rigid brace for the lower impact activities or a more rigid brace for high contact sports, Pieter M Botha Orthotist & Prosthetist has a premium quality solution for you.

Many people suffer unnecessarily from knee pain due to osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease characterised by breakdown of the joint�s cartilage that cushions the bones of the knee.  The Knee Braces provided from Össur offer a non-invasive, economical treatment option that is scientifically proven to relieve pain and improve mobility.

We offer a wide selection of products including the CTi® range, the revolutionary Unloader One®, the dual-hinged OAsys® Carticare brace and Form Fit® neoprene supports.

CTi® Custom

CTi remains the cornerstone of our ligament bracing product line today. The CTi® brace provides a static support system consisting of a rigid frame that will hold the bones in proper alignment and provide high level of control to prevent displacement.

The hand-laminated, rigid, carbon composite CTi knee brace frame captures the tibia, providing the brace-to-bone contact needed for maximum stabilisation of the knee joint. The non-elastic cruciate strapping combined with a rigid frame that truly captures the tibia, results in a static support system.

The CTi Custom is generally used for high levels of support where comfort and strength are not compromised with weight and bulkiness.
