The Best Knee Brace in the World

Posted by Ruth Miller on Thu 14th February 2008 at 04:29 PM, Filed in SnowboardingSkiingTravel Accessories

The best knee brace in the world retails for a hefty £438 ($875) and is called the CTi knee brace. I hasten to add that this is my own personal opinion after suffering with various knee complaints over the years and should not preclude you trying out different products. Having said that it works brilliantly for me.


The CTi knee brace is ideal for a whole host of skiing and snowboard associated knee injuries - such as anterior cruciate or medial collateral ligament injury.

It’s off the shelf and made from carbon fibre and silicon components making it light and offering almost full flexibility.

It is important to bear in mind that this has to be fitted by a trained clinician (which is included in the price).

Custom made alternatives cost around £750 ($1500).

I live on Canada’s West Coast and have hiked its mountains for 30 years, and I can tell you that the world’s best knee brace is the Ossur (formerly Generation 2) Unloader XT, called the Unloader Select in the U.S. The bracing principal behind this brace was invented in Vancouver decades ago…and has saved the careers of countless athletes, and just ordinary folks. There’s nothing like it in the world, trust me. I’m 65 and just getting my third one made. This brace will change your life, no matter how bad you knee is.
