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.

"Helped to keep pain less harsh. Could stay on my feet or stand longer. It felt much better to sit. I have to use my brace much longer to really determine the lasting benefits."Florence Jones
"I am an Orthotic Technician and have been in the Orthotic and Prosthetic industry for 26 years. I have seen many different types of lumbar supports and have fabricated and adjusted devices myself, for various conditions.
In early September of 2010 the owner of my company left your brochure for the DDS 500 on my workbench and told me to contact DDS and find out the specifics of the device. We had received your brochure before, but now he had a very difficult patient in mind."
