OPEN LOWER LIMB BRACE WITH POLYCENTRIC HINGES AND 20° ROM ADJUSTMENT
Closed long knee brace is made of perforated neoprene foam, which is coated with lining fabric. It holds two independent supported sets of the Velcro tapes. Internal perforation allows skin to breath and reduces overheating. The device has two 2-axial sides splints, equipped with rack and pinion and drop locks allowing for ROM adjustment in every 20°. The splints are hot covered by durable powder surface. This precise adjustment facilities the rehabilitation process. The system of splints in knee brace is arranged in a shape of X letter, which allows to adhere perfectly to the limb and also enables to stabilize the joint precisely. Using of anatomic patella support made of foam with antimycotic properties provides maximum stabilization of the patellofemoral joint.
