At Orthotics Plus we cater for patients who have general knee pain or require general knee support as they return to their sport of choice. These braces are generally slim line and very functional.

The braces that we commonly use include the Genutrain knee brace and the Genutrain S knee brace. These provide some stability and compression to control swelling.

We do have access to many different knee braces which we can order if a different or custom made brace is required.

At Orthotics Plus we work with multiple Orthopaedic knee specialists, Sports Doctors and Physiotherapists. Patients are often referred for bracing due to arthritic knee conditions.

We often see patients who are trying to delay knee replacement surgery or who aren’t an appropriate candidate for surgery. For these patients, a knee brace is often a good option. There are two general types of knee braces for treatment of arthritis:

  • General knee sleeve
  • Offloading knee brace

The general knee sleeve we use is the Genutrain knee brace which is appropriate for persistent pain and swelling. For those with “bone on bone” on one side of the knee joint, the Unloader one/Unloader fit knee brace is a great option to offload one side of the knee joint.

We do have access to many different knee braces which we can order if a different or custom made brace is required.

At Orthotics Plus we work with multiple Orthopaedic knee specialists, Sports Doctors and Physiotherapists. Patients are often referred for bracing due to ligamentous and soft tissue injuries, including:

  • Medial/Lateral Collateral Ligament Injury
  • Anterior/Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injury
  • Medial/Lateral meniscal injuries

There are times when surgery is not an option/not required and bracing is the definitive treatment. These braces generally fall into two categories:

  • Short term bulkier knee braces
  • Functional lighter weight knee braces

The short term bulkier knee braces are those similar to the pre/post-op knee braces. The functional lighter weight knee braces may include the Genutrain S knee brace, form-fit range of motion knee brace or Secutec Genu knee brace.

We do have access to many different knee braces which we can order if a different or custom made brace is required.

At Orthotics Plus we work with multiple Orthopaedic surgeons who specialise in knees. Sometimes patients who are having knee surgery require bracing pre or post-operatively.

There are generally two different types of pre-/post-operative knee braces:

  • Range of motion knee brace
  • Locked knee brace

Your knee specialist will specify which brace is required and the range of motion allowed. The braces we generally use are the GII Hinged Knee Brace, Formfit Hinged Knee Brace and the Zimmer Knee Immobiliser. These are pre-made braces, which need to be customised/shaped to correctly fit the contours of your knee. If this doesn’t occur the knee brace will not be comfortable and will not control the knee correctly.
