DDS Introduces its 3rd generation OA Knee Brace. It’s slimmer, lighter and most effective compared to its predecessors. Its uniquely designed triangular LTS Hinge will help treat moderate to severe osteoarthritis by reducing the load on both the medial and lateral compartments in the knee joint, whereas standard braces only unload one. The innovative Anti-Migration Silicone Guard is also the first of its kind which prevents the brace from slipping.
The posterior straps anchors on top of the calf and to the bottom of the hamstring. As the leg extends, the LTS Hinge gently pulls in the opposite directions, decompresses, and unloads the knee joint. This reduction of pressure supports and stabilizes the knee; eases pain and increases mobility.
Leverage Traction System is the culmination of intelligent frame and hinge design. The LTS technology provides decompression to the knee joint by re-establishing the natural space and cushioning that’s missing between the femur and the tibia when afflicted with osteoarthritis.
Any loss of cartilage between the knee joint or even a sudden increase in weight can strain the knees and cause painful inflammation.
The Triangular Shaped LTS Hinge acts as a lever to displace heavy body weight away from the affected knee. It is activated whenever the leg transitions from bent to extended positions. The straps anchor on top of the calf muscle and on to the bottom of the hamstring. As the leg extends, the innovative shape of the LTS Hinge gently pulls in opposite directions, unloading the joint to provide immediate support for the affected area.
Before Treatment Osteoarthritis in the knee is the reduction of the natural cushioning between the femur and the tibia. When this occurs, the bones rub more closely against each other which often can cause pain, swelling and limited mobility.
After TreatmentWeight is displaced from the affected knee. There is less contact between the bones and pain is relieved. Swelling is reduced with an increase in mobility.
Angle Lock System
For a patient who needs rehabilitation, and requires restricted movement of the leg, the OA Kneetrac’s Angle Lock System can be initiated to accommodate such needs.
The allowable range of motion for the knee should be controlled based on the patient’s recovery goals.

"After receiving my DDS brace and putting it on, I actually felt a difference in my lower back pain and hurting. A calmness was felt and my back was hurting less. I wear the DDS brace at least 2 times a day for 2 hrs at a time. I also wear my brace to do grocery shopping under my clothes. The DDS brace have brought me much relief from the lower back pain I was enduring before the DDS brace. I feel blessed to have this brace. Thanks!"Lorain J. May
"This letter is in support of the ambulatory traction belt(DDS Belt) that we have been using at this clinic for over one year for our chronic back pain patients. I would estimate I have seen 80 to 85% of the patients that I have used this with have moderate to significant relief of their back pain when ambulatory or with prolonged standing. I particularly like to use this device because it does not have the side effects of oplold medicines have and also it is noninvasive and again, it has been very helpful with our patients."Barratt C.
