I'm sure a bunch of you guys are using these Ossur CTI braces, so I wanted to get some input on upkeep and whatnot..
I just got mine yesterday (CTI OTS for ACL) and I love it. Huge step up from any knee brace I've ever had. I took it to the gym yesterday and did a few leg exercises (squat, leg press, lunges, rode the bike and ran a few miles on the treadmill) and it was fantastic. I felt like I had much more flexibly wearing it than any other, while still feeling very stable. I'm not to sure about getting it in the water though. My last brace was a DonJoy, the hinges rusted and the velcro straps wore out and in 1 year because of use in water.
Does anybody have any tips or advice for keeping this thing in tip top condition after a session on the lake? It does have velcro straps and the pads inside are like a slip resistant material that look like they will hold water, so mold and mildew are a concern.
Thanks in advance!
