Custom-made braces are fabricated based on precise measurements taken.  They are made to address specific dysfunctions, such as kneecap mal-tracking, post-operation, chronic sprains etc.  Because they are custom-made, the brace provides advanced support for joint instabilities, and often preferable for return-to-sports.  It is also superior for people who experience knee pain from osteoarthritis.
Custom-made braces are fully covered by most extended health insurance plans.
