We are pleased to offer the Innovation Sports C180 Rocket Knee Brace for children. This knee brace has been designed specifically for use by modern-day athletic kids who are constantly pushing the edge of their sports performance, as well as their developing bodies.
The knee brace utilizes Innovation Sports' renowned Accutrac hinge system, the same hinges utilized in their world-famous C.Ti.2 knee braces. This system allows for accurate femoral rollback during knee flexion to properly track your child's knee motion kinematics. The knee brace is very light and designed with active children in mind. The knee brace is also breathable and water-resistant.
Importantly, it is probably the best off-the-shelf children's brace we have seen and because it is off-the-shelf, it is quite affordable relative to the amount of knee joint protection it will provide. Many physicians recommend prophylactic bracing of knees for motocross racing, in particular (prophylactic means "preventative", or trying to protect against an injury). This knee brace does have an optional Motocross Kit, specifically for this purpose, to help provide protection of the knee from direct impact or flying debris.
Additional features and benefits include
Total Support System designed to compensate for medial-lateral, anterior-posterior, and combined ligament instabilities in the knee.
Anatomically proportioned (i.e., child-sized!) Accutrac hinge
Ultra-light, streamlined, thermosensitive, composite frame
This brace fits both boys and girls.
- Small: 9 ½ to 11 inches (24.1 to 27.9 centimeters)
- Large: 10 ¼ to 11 ¾ inches (25 to 29.8 centimeters)
Note that sizes overlap to allow for your child's growth. If your child's measurement is 10 ¼ inches or larger, most likely you are better off ordering size Large. For circumferences larger than 11 ¾ inches, you should consider an adult knee brace.
As kids are more and more active in aggressive sports, including motocross, it is very important to protect their knees. ACL injuries in a young child are extremely complicated to treat and better prevented. This is one of the few braces on the market that is designed specifically for children (as opposed to being a small version of an adult brace).
