Kirsty receives a 100% custom made revolutionary knee brace from Ortema
ORTEMA is an innovative company based in Germany who specialise in orthopedic technology and sport orthopaedics. They are also are a savior for professional sports people like Kirsty who want to get back to doing their sport as soon as possible and competitively after injury! Ortema specialize in extreme sports and deal with professional sports people from all over the world who rely on their braces not only for after an injury but also to provide protection to prevent injury in high impact sports.
“Thanks to the fantastic support from Ortema I will be receiving a carbon-fibre knee brace with titanium knee joints made from a mould and 100% customised.”
The plaster mould is the most exact method of obtaining a model of the athlete’s leg. The anatomy is duplicated to 100%. To obtain a perfect fit the centre of rotation of the knee joint is exactly measured and the model altered appropriately.
The joint splints are made of a titanium material. These are integrated into the carbon fibre construction which enables a very thin and light shell of the brace combined with maximum stability.
Kirsty said “thanks to Ortema I am excited and confident about getting back to kitesurfing and surfing, pushing my limits even further with a new found motivation and 100% confidence and belief in what i want to achieve.”
