Levitation from Spring Loaded Technology is the world’s first compact bionic knee brace. According to the company, Levitation is the only brace that can significantly reduce pressure throughout the knee while enhancing strength to alleviate pain and improve mobility for people with damaged knees. Independent research has shown that Levitation’s tri-compartment unloading system can decrease knee joint loads by up to 64%. As the user bends, the brace’s bionic hinge acts similar to a car’s suspension system to increase stability and reduce pain, enabling many patients to crouch, squat, and even lunge without pain. As legs straighten, the brace assists the thigh muscles to help reduce compression in the knee joint. Levitation is often used for osteoarthritis, as well as to help manage the symptoms of ligament and meniscus injuries.
