Part 3 - Asymmetrical Glide Hinge


Asterisk's patented asymmetrical eight sphere, four bar hinge mechanism tracks the changing centre of rotation, to prevent the knee brace from "cater-pillaring" up or down during use.

Part 4 - Adjustable Retention Control


The Adjustable Retention Control (ARC) cuff is designed to bend at the knee in a motion, keeping the upper and lower leg in the same plane throughout the whole movement.This brace has been designed to mitigate the forces which could force an unprotected joint out of this plane.

Part 5 - Anti-Rotation Tether


Asterisk's patented Anti-Rotation Tether is an adjustable link which secures the knee brace to the boot, designed as a defense against leg rotation. Linking the knee brace and boot is crucial to transferring and diminishing the forces of a lower leg rotation.

Part 6 - Tele-Tri Patella Cup


The telescopic cup is made of three pieces, giving you full coverage throughout the range of knee motions. Many other patella cups leave gaps when the knee bends, leaving the knee and surrounding areas exposed to direct impact. The Tele-Tri cup leaves no such gaps and provides full coverage and protection.
