Levitation® - The First Tri-Compartment Unloader™ Knee Brace
Levitation’s unique tri-compartment unloading approach combines multiple technologies to:
Reduce pressure throughout the knee:
Levitation® is the only brace that significantly reduces forces in all three compartments of your knee. Pressure increases throughout the knee when it is bent, reaching up to seven times bodyweight. Equipped with a patented bionic hinge, Levitation® absorbs bodyweight and assists with leg extension. This reduces the pressure exerted by the quadriceps on the knee.
Realign the knee:
For those with a misalignment of the knee, the optional pneumatic offloader can be added to Levitation® to realign the knee. This further reduces pain, improves strength and stability, and diminishes the risk of falling.
Restore strength with bionics:
Levitation® absorbs energy when you bend your knee, and returns that energy as you straighten your leg. This assists your natural movement and helps protect your knees, allowing you to stay active longer. As your strength increases and pain decreases, the power can be dialed back or turned off altogether.

Levitation™ is offered in 5 off-the-shelf sizes. Our innovative strapping systems ensure the brace will stay locked in place on your leg by dynamically changing shape to match your leg as you move.
Our sizing process requires three width and three circumference measurements per leg. Once an order has been placed, a Bracing Specialist will instruct you on how to take these measurements to ensure the best possible fit.
With a prescription in hand, most insurance providers will provide coverage for Levitation™.
All insurance plans are a bit different and typically vary by region and plan type. You should always follow up directly with your insurance provider for details specific to your plan.
Note that some insurers (in particular in the United States) require a reimbursement code to provide coverage. In the United States, your doctor will prescribe an appropriate HCPCS reimbursement code for custom knee bracing with extension assistance.
We’re confident that our craftsmanship will stand up to every day use and offer a 1-year warranty on the brace shell and hinge. We offer a 6-month warranty on soft goods including strapping and padding.
