Introducing the most advanced orthopedic bracing technology available for patello-femoral tracking problems.

The Shields Brace will control the patella during athletic competition. It successfully controls malalignments of glide, medial/lateral tilt, and anterior/posterior tilt. Dynamic patella stabilization is provided through entire range of motion. The buttress features a Spectron non-slip surface maintaining its positioning with the patella. Medial and lateral spiral stays limit bunching, while allowing full range of motion. Independent calf and thigh strap application is ideal for most leg contours.

  • Easy to use, fits either right or left knee.

  • Wrap around design allows for easier application, better fit, less migration and decreased sizing needs.

  • Adjustable buttress and flap system.

  • Open popliteal design allows for greater comfort during flexion.

  • Successfully controls the common patella malalignments of glide, tilt, and AP tilt.
