OrthotiCare Clinics – Lower Limb Bracing

About Our Knee Braces, Knee-Ankle, Ankle-Foot & Ankle Orthoses

At OrthotiCare Clinics, we provide a full range of custom-made and pre-fabricated (off-the-shelf) Lower Limb Orthoses. It is important to have the highest standard of care possible when treating conditions of the knee, ankle and foot. Tim Miller, Certified Orthotist is highly qualified in this area of orthotic care and he has over 24 years of experience treating patients of all ages, including those with complex medical diagnoses.

Knee Braces, Knee Orthoses (K.O.)

We have many designs for knee braces that benefit patients who require improved stability or unloading. We provide orthotic treatment options for osteoarthritis, knee instability, ACL/PCL/MCL/LCL injury and post-operative rehabilitation.

There are two broad categories of knee braces: stability and unloading. We offer both categories of knee braces, in both custom-made and pre-fabricated (off-the-shelf) designs.

An initial clinical assessment is always performed in order to recommend the most appropriate knee brace solution. The highest quality materials and technology available are used for the manufacture of our knee braces. We custom design, fabricate and fit our knee braces – and we offer an included follow-up period for adjustments as needed. In this way, we ensure that the optimal function, fit and comfort are achieved for our patients.

We Offer a Trial Knee Brace Program

For patients with osteoarthritis-related knee conditions, a professional clinical assessment and fitting of a trial knee brace is available. After a two-week trial period, a follow-up assessment is done to determine if relief from osteoarthritis pain was achieved and if a new pre-fabricated (off-the-shelf) or custom-made knee brace is appropriate for treatment. The decision to proceed with a knee brace is then made in collaboration with the patient and their physician or medical specialist.

Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthoses (K.A.F.O.)

Our custom Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthoses (K.A.F.O.) provide better stance control for patients who need more stability than an ankle-foot orthosis (A.F.O.) or a knee brace can supply. These are made specifically for an individual’s needs. The patient and the Certified Orthotist determine the custom design of the KAFO together, to achieve the improvements required.

Ankle-Foot Orthoses (A.F.O.) & Ankle Orthoses
Our custom Ankle-Foot Orthoses (A.F.O.) and Ankle Orthoses benefit patients who need a functional solution, for ankle stability and function, that will fit into a shoe or boot.
