Levitation is the world’s first bionic knee brace. Levitation powers your knee joint and leg muscles so you can work harder, play longer, and do more than you ever thought possible. Levitation stores energy as you bend your leg, and returns that energy as you straighten your leg. Whether you’re recovering from a knee injury, have a physically demanding job, or are simply looking for an extra boost in life, our bionic knee braces might be able to help.

Levitation™ Knee Braces bring together our signature hinge and bionic spring technology in a compact, light-weight brace. By absorbing, storing, then releasing energy in an adjustable way, the Levitation™ knee brace can reduce muscle fatigue, enhance strength and performance, and help protect the knees from injury. Levitation™ is commonly used by individuals with knee osteoarthritis, knee injuries, athletes, and those working in the skilled trades. It offers a customizable assist, allowing users to tailor their brace’s performance to meet their specific needs.
By providing customized energy return that is tailored to your needs, Levitation™ can be used across a wide variety of applications. Below are some of the most common uses of Levitation™.
Example Athletic Applications
Ligament injuries (ACL, PCL, LCL, MCL)
Meniscus (cartilage) injuries
Many neurologically-based mobility conditions
We are dedicated to product quality and want your brace to last a long time. We use aircraft grade materials in Levitation™. Product components are listed below.
Hinge & Quick Disconnects
Padding & Cord
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.
When performing repetitive movements like heavy lifting, bending, and crouching, Levitation can enhance strength while helping prevent injury by providing stabilization and shock absorption.
Levitation is designed to help you recover from injury and return to play.
Levitation helps you do more of what you love and is designed to reduce pain, enhance mobility, and restore strength.
Designed with you in mind
The shell is made with streamlined, light-weight carbon-fiber. Because of its light weight and durability, carbon fiber is used in airplanes, wind turbine blades, high-end sporting equipment, and Formula 1 race cars.
Our unique, proprietary brace hinge works by storing the kinetic energy you create while bending your leg, and then returning that energy as your extend your leg. The technology in our hinges was inspired by the landing gear on high performance aircraft.
Our proprietary strapping system moves with your leg as it changes shape, keeping your brace in the right place and preventing the brace from slipping down your leg.
Custom Force Response
We customize the force response delivered across the range of motion of your knee to meet your particular needs.
Adjustable Force Output
The maximum force output and range of motion assisted can be adjusted to suit your changing needs.

We know that everyone’s needs are different, and from the information you provide, we customize the brace’s energy return system. You can adjust the overall force output of the brace, or simply turn off the spring pack when it’s no longer needed, leaving you with a top-quality functional and stabilizing knee brace.
