No. We designed the Masted Knee Brace primarily to stop distal migration (where the brace slides down the leg). Slippage is a very common issue with knee braces. Even when wearing a knee brace correctly, more often than not, there will be distal migration or sliding of the knee brace down the leg. This is a very common problem. Too many knee braces just won’t stay put. This impacts compliance and even device effectiveness. Because our Masted Knee Brace anchors all the way to the foot, distal migration is eliminated. Elimination of distal migration was the primary driver behind this brace. In fact, most users of this brace don’t have drop foot.Because the Masted Knee Brace anchors to a foot plate, it can be configured with an optional integrated Step-Smart for Drop Foot.
