DDS’ newest innovation is the perfect solution for on-the-go individuals with OA knee pain. The LTS Hinge gently pulls in opposite directions, decompresses and unloads the knee joint. This reduction of pressure supports and stabilizes the knee, eases pain and assists in active rehabilitation.
Kneetrac Lite’s 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 osteoarthiritis.
Any loss of cartilage between the knee joint or even a sudden increase in weight can strain the knees and cause painful inflammation.
The 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 hinge is strategically placed closer to the patella as opposed to the center of the joint when viewed from the side. This creates a fulcrum point away from the natural fulcrum point of the joint. 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 Treatment Weight 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.
Flexible Frame Lightweight frame contours to the shape of your leg.
Easy to wear Made with durable materials & easily worn under clothing.
Breathable Fabric Air mesh fabric quickly moves sweat away from the body promoting rapid evaporation.
Inner Silicone Lining Padded shin guard is lined with silicone to prevent sliding.

"The brace has not improved my golf score one damn bit, but it has made it more enjoyable to play a bad round of golf!
"Research now confirms the majority of chronic back and neck problems comes from the spinal disc. Injury to the disc can compress nearby nerves and place stress on the facet joints which introduces a cycle of pain and loss of function. Any approach to resolving this pathology must allow for 2 key factors, a reduction of pressure on the area and an increase of circulation to the damaged tissue."Dr. Stephen Stokes BS, DC, FIAMA
