Since 1978, they have introduced several revolutionary technologies to their industry, including webtech and C6 technology. Webtech is an elastic web used in knee braces that pulls pain from the knee, while C6 technology is using carbon threading to create moisture-wicking, anti-bacterial fabric that reduces odors when sweating.
