Post Surgical & Ligament Rehab.

The New innovation in ligament healing knee braces are the Ossur ACL and PCL Rebound braces. They help control the position of the knee during ligament healing to help reduce any strain on the target ligament.  Rebound ACL or PCL knee braces require an appointment.

Post Surgical braces are designed to stabilize the knee while offering range of motion restrictions pre or post surgery. They are telescopic and universal size and side. OKAPED stocks the Adult and Pediatric versions at all of clinics. Drop in fitting service for Post surgical braces is available at the Pandosy Kelowna Clinic just south of KGH.

The Rebound ACL is a dynamic ACL brace that can be integrated directly into current protocols, designed to reduce strain on the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).

The Rebound ACL brace is an evolution in bracing, designed to comfortably apply an anatomically correct, dynamic load to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Whether during conservative or surgical management, the Rebound ACL compliments protocols and supports an optimal biomechanical joint environment as a foundation for long-term successful patient outcomes. Innovative technology in the Rebound® Dynamic Tension System (DTS) allows individualized, adjustable settings to reduce strain on the healing ACL.

Intended use

Post-injury, post-surgery, and conservative rehabilitation.

Key features

  • Dynamic technology for knee stability, with a Dynamic Tension System™ that provides an agonistic, dynamic force to the ACL that is flexion-angle dependent (LaPrade et al., 2017) and designed to reduce anterior-drawer, promoting knee stability.
  • Specific load adaptation according to the patient’s individual anatomy and rehabilitation requirements Supported by clinical & biomechanical studies, the Rebound ACL is shown to reduce strain on the ACL during activity and significantly reduce strain on the menisicus in ACL-deficient knees (Tomescu et al., 2017).
  • Biocompatible, hi-tech materials including Blue is You™ patient touch points & ActiveGrip™ liners promote suspension & comfort
  • Lightweight, aircraft aluminum frame
  • Available in sizes SM-XL
  • Flexion & extension range-of-motion lock-outs
  • Posterior frame optimized for fit and support, with open anterior for ease of donning/doffing
  • Clinically-tested comfort, validated by end-users and with load mapping data collected during rehabilitation activities, the Rebound® Dynamic Tension System (DTS) provides a comfortable load to the posterior thigh & anterior tibia.


The Rebound PCL is designed to apply a physiologically correct dynamic force, optimum for rehabilitation of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) ruptures, whether during functional (non-surgical) treatment or post-surgical reconstruction. The dynamic load of the Rebound PCL on the tibia is generated by applying an anterior directed dynamic force on the calf area, and opposing counter forces on the anterior aspect of the leg.

Indications for use

  • Rehabilitation of Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) ruptures, whether post-surgical reconstruction or during functional (non-surgical) treatment.

Features and benefits

  • A Dynamic Tension System™ designed to increase the load on the tibia as the knee goes through flexion, providing an anterior drawer force that reduces the load on the PCL.
  • Shear Knobs for specific load adaptation according to the patient’s individual anatomy and rehabilitation related requirements.
  • Polycentric Hinge with extension and flexion stops allowing for range of motion adjustment.
  • Anti-migration Straps (AMS) reduce migration and provide comfort while ensuring that the brace stays in correct position.
  • Breathable Sensil® liners reduce migration and skin irritation while providing comfort.


The simple, versatile post surgical knee brace solution that is easy for everyone. Whether adjusting ROM, setting the drop lock, or altering the brace length, you’ll appreciate the simplicity of the Rebound Post-op knee brace.

Corns & Callus

Corns and calluses are two ways hyperkeratosis, or thickening of the outer layer of skin, appears on our feet.  This is a normal protective response of the body when exposed to excessive pressure or friction.

OA Knee Bracing 

Osteoarthritis (OA) commonly affects the knees, from general wear and tear over the years, or if you have had a meniscal injury then you may be likely to have OA. In knees, this usually affects one side of your knee joint more than the other, medial or lateral (inside or outside) of your knee joint.
