Ascend is a knee exo or brace that reduces quad dominance without limiting range of motion.
Our research suggests the Ascend can help reduce quad dominance a leading cause of knee injury, knee pain, and extended recovery times. Quad dominance often occurs post injury or post-surgery and its correction has been linked to lower knee injury risks. Ascend is trusted by active individuals of all ages, athletes, and medical professionals.
Ascend uses patent pending technology we call the VRS or varying radius spring, to provide a offloading force to the quadriceps muscles. Unlike traditional bracing which only focuses on minimizing motion with a rigid frame. When you squat or bend your leg the spring system is compressed storing energy that is released during leg extension. This provides muscle assist during heavy usage without interfering with your normal range of motion. The VRS system is packaged in a sleek and lightweight frame that can be customized to your leg.
Ascend is used by hikers, runners, cyclists and pro and amateur athletes alike looking to gain an edge in their injury or surgery recovery. Weather your looking to get back crushing the competition, hike with your friends or family, or simply get back the active life you had before knee problems, Ascend can get you there.
