At Winnock Physiotherapy we can offer you expert advice and supply you with the appropriate brace or appliance to meet your needs, whether this is to assist you returning to your sport or to allow you to lead an active lifestyle in spite of Osteo-Arthritis. We carry a very small stock of off-the-shelf braces but rather order to your specific needs. Delivery time varies from two days to two weeks. We deal with a wide range of manufacturers in both Canada and the U.S. and we have the equipment and expertise to measure you for custom made braces. This can save you a trip to the larger cities and you will find our prices very favorable.
We currently are able to supply the two custom made braces that are the most popular with many of the Orthopedic surgeons, namely the CTi 2 from Innovation Sports Inc. and the Donjoy Defiance from d j Orthopedics, LLC. These would typically be used for sports injuries, such as ACL tears or degenerative conditions such as Osteo-Arthritis.
We currently dela with the following popular manufacturers of braces and Othopedic supplies:
Trainer's Choice, Orthotec, Biomedical Horizons Inc., Medical Specialties Inc., Rotan, Obus Forme, Sammons Preston, Theraband, Tensor.
We try to deal with firms that supply braces for very specific needs and that are a fair price. Some are better quality and unfortunately these are more expensive or have longer delivery times. We try to have the most frequently needed braces available from irms with a very fast delivery service. We will be happy to try to obtain any make of brace or specialty need that you have.
The following are some details of the high quality and custom made braces we can supply. For further details see the specified firm's web-sites or contact Winnock Physiotherapy.
Innovation Sports utilizes the Total Support System (TSS).
The tibial control component encompasses the tibia and parallels the tibial crest to help inhibit anterior and pivotal tibial excursion caused by ACL laxity. The non-elastic upper cruciate strap provides an opposing force on the femur to help stabilize the knee.
A six-point system helps provide excellent medial and lateral support. The rigid graphite frame's lateral arms, condylar support at the joint and non-elastic Velcro(tm) straps help inhibit medial and lateral instability. Blue arrows indicate support opposing valgus forces; white arrows indicate support opposing various forces.
For the C.Ti.2, EDGE and C180 braces the PCL Opposition system is available. The Opposition incorporates a femoral horseshoe extension and an anatomically designed opposing gastroc force plate to help reduce tibial drawer.
The Accutrac(tm) hinge produces the most advanced and natural multi-centric joint motion available in knee bracing today. By analyzing the motion of the external dimensions of the leg throughout the ROM, a four bar linkage system was created to generate a movement of the tibial component that mimics the movement of the tibia. It also helps to ensure proper brace suspension.
One Year Fit Guarantee
When you purchase a custom knee brace from Innovation Sports, you can be sure that your patients will be completely satisfied with its fit and function. Because we understand that the year following an injury may bring changes in leg size, we offer a one year fit guarantee. We will gladly make any necessary fit adjustments during that time at no charge to the patient.
There are times when a patient needs to return a brace for service, but can't be without it for even a day. For those patients we offer a unique Brace-On-Loan program which provides the patient with a ready-to-fit replacement brace while their own brace is being serviced. Yet another way we're helping our patients when they need it most.

Four Points of Leverage
DJ Orthopedics' goal from the beginning has been to revolutionize orthopedic bracing. The U.S Patented Four Points of Leverage is a dynamic bracing system designed to prevent abnormal anterior drawer. The four points of leverage are integrated to work against abnormal translation. And, the effective sequence of strapping ensures force generation directly over the tibia opposing the abnormal translation.
The patented four points of leverage design is used on the Defiance@, 4TITUDETM, and LegendTM braces. The Defiance is our flagship product providing a perfect customized fit using the latest technology in carbon fiber composite materials to create a lightweight yet very durable design. Our newest member, the 4TITUDE, is an extremely low profile functional brace with moldable cuffs for a custom-like fit to meet a variety of patient profiles. The Legend features a non-chip outer covering recommended for contact sports.
Unique Integration System
The center of the hinge will be just posterior to the midline and just superior to joint line This allows points one and three to compress soft tissue, isolating the femur and bringing it forward Points two and four draw the tibia posterior, generating a net differential force, or constant load, directly over the tibia, preventing it from moving forward.
This four-point leverage system is for ACL only For a PCL brace, the points of leverage would be reversed, switching the anterior and posterior straps on both the calf and thigh to generate the constant anterior force required over the posterior aspect of the tibia.
TROM (Total Range of Motion)
The TROM post-operative brace features an innovative, easy to use hinge that can adjust the range of motion with a click of a button. The brace can instantly lock at 0, 10, 20 and 30 degrees of extension for drop-lock requirements. The TROM is extremely versatile to support a wide range of protocols.
The OAdjuster offers an off-the-shelf solution to osteoarthritis pain with its revolutionary "Progressive Loading System", providing an integrated patient-controlled load adjustment. The Bi-Axial Hinge allows for a double upright design to contour to the leg and fit comfortably, without migration. The load sensor, a DonJoy exclusive, helps to determine the forces being applied by the brace.
