The pelottes are made of ACTiVDistance I – composition of polyurethane foam and external polyamide fabric with self-adhesive qualities. This is a soft material but non-elastic, ideal for construction of modular supports, where the function of flection control in the knee joint and function of full lock in upright standing position is very important. The fabric does not stretch giving the patient feeling of safety. The supports do not cause sores or excoriation.
It stabilizes and releases stress from the knee and ankle joint, prevents foot drop. It enables controlled gradual increase of movement range in the knee joint.
