Final Year Project

A knee brace for young sports professionals that provides minimal intervention with maximal effect

With ACL ruptures being amongst the most common in sports athletes, the knee orthosis market is saturated with ill-fitting and overly assistive braces. Aligned with future trends in physiotherapy practises, the brace encourages proactive muscle therapy, to reduce muscular atrophy experienced. The slim and lightweight frame offers greater acceptance among young adult elite athletes.
