“However, not all braces are made equally. That’s why, after years of fitting braces, we only use Ossur braces – which are globally recognised as the best braces available.
Use this page to learn about bracing, our bracing expertise, and why Ossur are the best braces in the world.”

Specialist bracing is the same as bracing, but more advanced.
Its used when the client:
Braces provide stability when ligaments, muscles and/or bones are healing. This lets you resume activities, gradually building up your strength and function while protecting yourself from re-injury.
The cost of a brace can vary, depending on the type, level of support and level of customization.
braces, like the neoprene sleeve, are cheap. This is because they are inexpensive to manufacture, patient ready, and designed on well known technology. There is nothing wrong with this brace if this is what your injury requires. Typically, a low-level sprain.
However, others can be much more money. They offer extremely high levels of support. Expensive because they’re cutting edge tech, costly to manufacture, and sometimes require customisation to build.
Others, like a knee immobilizer, have to be custom-designed to meet your measurements, which makes it more expensive.
Many health insurance providers cover bracing equipment ordered through your physiotherapist or other healthcare professional. It’s always a good idea to inquire with your provider before getting fitted
Your physio will know which is the right one.
The physio will assess your injury to determine which brace is best, factors include your size, nature of injury and extent of injury.
