Functional Knee Brace

matrix lite

The Matrix Lite is an off-the-shelf functional knee brace.  A functional knee brace is also known as an ACL brace.  The Matrix Lite is designed to protect and stabilize a ligament deficient knee.

The Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are prone to injury.  A functional knee brace like the Matrix Lite can help protect and stabilize the knee when one or more of these ligaments get injured.

Functional knee braces should only be fit by certified orthotists, never sales representatives.  Many times sales representatives will measure, fit, and bill for these medical devices.  This is a horrible idea.  You should only trust your knees to credentialed professionals who have gone to school, completed a residency, and have been properly trained in bio-mechanics and orthotic devices.  Look for people with CO or BOCO after their names.  Most athletic trainers did not go to school to learn about fitting knee braces, though many do.  If your health insurance is being billed for a functional knee brace, make sure you get measured and fit by an orthotist.
