What are the benefit of having your brace fitted by an Orthotist?
- If you’ve had an injury or experiencing problems with your knee then it is important that the knee brace meets your medical needs, in terms of both injury and activity.
- A professional assessment and fitting ensures that you are using the right product for the right problem resulting in optimal fit and function. The more rigid the frame the more important the correct fitting is.
- A brace assessment aims to provide you with the opportunity to ‘try out’ a functional knee brace within the session. This will enable you to decide whether an ‘off the shelf’ or custom-made brace will suit your needs.
- The orthotist will ensure that the brace delivers optimal fit and full customisation when required, particularly for skiers under 5’3’’.
Increased confidence, peace of mind and reassurance that you have the correct product – with ongoing support and trouble-shooting if required.
- Long term reviews and maintenance are available to update your brace fit as your knee changes or parts need replacing.
12 month ‘fit’ warranty available for fully custom made braces.
- Only clinically proven designs from leading manufacturers are offered to our patients.
A functional knee brace is built to last on average 10-15 years therefore it is got to be worth getting it right from the beginning!
Note: *2 week turnaround for custom made knee braces with fitting appointment required.*
Private medical insurance does not usually cover sports knee bracing.
“I’ve had problems with both of my knees for years. They’d often give way and I was so unstable, I felt nervous in big crowds – especially when travelling around London during rush hour.
After multiple operations I decided to book an appointment with Serena Stubbs, Specialist Consultant Orthotist at Wimbledon Clinics. Serena suggested that I get a low-profile brace, essentially to stop my leg from collapsing.
To be treated by Serena was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. Professional and personable, she explained each step in detail to make sure I was comfortable with the process.
I wasn’t aware that you could personalise the brace, but Serena showed me some options and explained that I could create my own design. So I went for something I knew no one else would have – flames and glitter!
It’s fair to say that my new brace is a talking point – everyone loves it! And it really has changed my life for the better.
Before, I avoided big crowds out of fear of falling over, but my confidence was sky-high at a recent England cricket match. Strangers would comment on my brace and by the end of the day, I’d earned the nickname ‘Robocop’!
Now I know that if my knee collapses, the brace is there to support me. I know my leg won’t go far out of kilter and I won’t fall over if someone were to give me a gentle knock.
Serena’s work has given me the confidence to start leading a normal life again – and for that, I’m eternally grateful.”
