The areas of application are osteoarthritis of the knee, knee pain, bow-leg (varus) and knock-knee (valgus) deformities Mechanism of action Protection, pain reduction and restoration of mobility by means of: Relief of the medial or lateral joint compartment by means of a 3-point system that supports the joint to correct valgus or varus alignment Knee stabilisation by means of the 4-point principle, to counteract knee instability, which often causes osteoarthritis of the knee Protection against hyperextension and limitation of movement by means of adjustable physioglide hinges Characteristics: Accurate and effective exertion of pressure near the joint to correct valgus or varus alignment. Flexible frame design to avoid torsional forces Mouldable thigh and lower leg frame to adjust to individual leg contours Polycentric physiological hinges using the principle of 4-chain linkage Possibility of limitation of extension at 0°, 10°, 20°, 30°, 45° Possibility of limitation of flexion at 0°, 10°, 20°, 30°, 45°, 60°,75°, 90° Possibility of immobilisation at 0°, 10°, 20°, 30°, 45° Ultra-flat, very light non-contact frame and hinge construction Well designed and easy to use strap guide Broad, well padded contact surfaces for the 3-point relief system Numbered straps, which make the fitting of the orthosis simple and accurate Air-filled condyle pads to prevent migratition.
