PATELLAR TRACKING BRACE AGAINST THE DISLOCATION
Patella dislocation / subluxation
Patellar dislocation is very common injury in sport, especially in women, and it’s typically caused by a direct blow or a sudden twist of the leg.
There is two types of dislocation:
- Traumatic – connected with pain, haematoma and limited motion of the knee. Stretching and rupturing are the results. After injury, the dislocations are recurrent.
- Habitual – it means that every knee flexion and extension cause mal-tracking of patella into lateral side.
The reasons of kneecap dislocations are: knee valgus, ligaments with joint capsule laxity and when the patella sits higher on the knee than normal.
After patella dislocation, patient feels hypermobility of kneecap, hematoma, sweeling and limited motion with weak muscles.
The best protection before or after injury is our patellar subluxation brace OKD-12.
OKD-12 is very comfortable to use knee brace, preventing the patella against the dislocation and subluxation. It provides efficiency and high comfort of use.
Soft lateral insert and two elastic circular straps above and under knee, stabilize patella and provide good tracking.
