What Makes the Ascend Different?

Engineered around comfort and mobility, the ascend is like no other knee brace on the market. 

The Ascend is different from other braces because of the VRS (Varying Spring Radius). This technology reduces the load on quadricep muscles by promoting less quad-dominate form and knee joint contact forces. It gets better though because the Ascend is Made in the United States, using 3D printers that produce flexible aerospace grade composites, commonly used in the aerospace industry. The Ascend is insurance billable under L1845 and L1852.  As well as making the Ascend faster to get then other braces. The lightweight design makes its possible to have maximum comfort and mobility.

An article by Form Labs states, "The company has seen early success with Ascend. In one case, a young woman was heading toward her fifth knee surgery before being put in touch with GRD. They created a patient-specific brace, and the surgery was cancelled. The patient quickly recovered, saving her time and money by skipping the fifth surgery. Quicker recovery times also free up healthcare professionals to focus on other patients, eliminating multiple unnecessary surgeries for the same patient." The Ascend allows for a happier patient and more attention to be given towards other issues.
