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.

"I’ve had my brace since NOV. 24, 2012 my DDS lumbar support belt has truly been a blessing. Since I’ve been wearing it I have not had to get cortisone injections to relieve the pain in my back thigh/leg. I can really see the difference when I don’t wear it daily from now on. The brace supports greatly with prolonged sitting / standing. Ordering it was one of best decision I’ve made. When we travel to Eastman Georgia approx a 13 drive it gives me all the comforting support. Thank you for this great product."Mrs. Magnolia Jenkins
"I am delighted to say I am much improved and the standing during long surgeries is no longer a dreaded event. It was a bit uncomfortable to use initially and I had to get used to what pressure would work for me ... but I am at the point now where I will not stand for any length of time without it...."Maurice Leibman MD
