Indications for use: Pains in joint in event of traumas and diseases. Meniscus injuries. Both chronic and rheumatic arthrosis and arthritis. Lateral and cruciate ligament ruptures. Conservative treatment of joint contractures. Chronic joint instability (hypermobility in event of insufficiency of ligamentous function). Postoperative rehabilitation, including endoscopic ones, with gradual distension of motion range. Repeated sport traumas during rehabilitation period.

 

Features:

 

It immobilizes (stabilizes, fixes, relaxes) your knee joint during inflammatory disease, acute trauma or after open treatment. Monocentric hinges, suitable for setting flexion and extension angles in the joint or preset necessary range of motion, provide normal knee biomechanics. Knee joint fixation and unloading actions provide compressive and massage effects. Warm retention effect ensures enhancement of muscle blood circulation and improvement of remedy absorption. It is used for strong fixation of knee joint, undergoing treatment of traumas and chronic inflammatory joint diseases. 
It is used to prevent joint traumas during sport activities and activities concerned with knee joint load actions. It is suitable for use in cold and damp weather.

    Helpful tips:

    For best therapeutic effect it is recommended to take the orthosis to pieces, unfastening the cuffs, metallic splints with hinges and fixing straps.

    • To fix the cuffs on hip and leg
    • To apply a splint on the cuffs so as the axis of motion in the hinges will coincide with the axis of motion in the joint
    • To fasten the orthosis on the leg with the help of fixing straps and Velcro fasteners
    • To set the flexion and extension angle (or the angle of immobilization) on the hinge

     

    Follow your doctor’s orders regarding orthosis use.
