What is a Custom Brace

Custom made braces can be used for arthritis, post-operatively or following an acute injury. The brace can aid in supporting the knee to allow for better function. We use high-level suppliers, such as Ossur, to create custom braces for ligament instability and osteoarthritis of the knee.


Many insurance plans will cover custom braces through your extended health benefits, and some may require a physician’s referral. After receiving your custom brace, you will be issued a receipt that you can send directly to your insurance company to reimburse the cost.

Custom braces can support several injuries including:

  • Ligamentous Knee Injuries (ACL, PCL, MCL)
  • Osteoarthritis (Knee OA)
  • Patellar dislocations
