KNEE BRACE WITH ROM ADJUSTMENT AND ACL PRECISION SYSTEM
6 POINT BRACES
The braces are intended for long-time using in patients with complicated knee instability (partly or complete ACL rupture), which is result of early injuries (before or postoperative) or after joint conditions.
Long light knee brace EB-SKL/2RA-ACL is closed construction professional medical device, which increases the gait quality and is the support in rehabilitation of the locomotor system. It stabilizes knee joint and support the muscles insertions. It is made of a structural material ProFIX.
The device is equipped with independent sets of Velcro straps, dynamic ACL support and 2-axial anatomic sides splints 2RA-ACL. The splints was equipped with 2RA drop lock, which allows for ROM adjustment (flexion in 75o, extension in 15° and immobilization in 0°). Furthermore, the brace consists of ACL Precision System, what is an innovative support for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which in case of its injury, minimalize unrequired anterior drawer syndrome.
Purpose of use
The close brace with ACL Precision system should be applied in cases of:
- ACL injuries operative or non-operative treated,
- knee ligaments LCL, MCL and PCL injuries,
- knee ligaments reconstruction,
- knee dislocation,
- knee twist and sprain,
- side instability of the knee joint,
- other surgeries (orthopedic).
2RA – ACL Precision System
System 2RA-ACL Precision makes it possible to control multidimensional movement of knee joint. This system consists of two splints 2RA and under-knee belts thanks to which femoral and tibial epiphysis do not excessively shift to each other in sagittal plane. It may appear in case of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury (anterior drawer syndrome). Polycentric splints 2RA are equipped with coupling mechanism with main conductive elements which move of parabolic tracks. It makes it possible to hold hinges in the axis of bending knee joint when knee joint bends. Anatomic splints have overextension blockage 15 degrees, flection blockage 75degrees and blockage in straight position.
Adjustment of flexion and extension angle is possible with the aid of special screws (each product is equipped with Allan key which is indispensable for adjustment). The system which contains under-knee belts additionally stabilizes knee joint and, moreover, it prevents excessive moving of capital tibial epiphysis (symptom appears in case of either partial or complete ACL damage)
Orthoses with 2RA-ACL system should be applied directly after knee joint injuries with partial or complete ACL damage. Furthermore, they should be used until reconstructive surgery will possibly be carried out (in order to eliminate the situation when injury results will deepen).
Orthoses with 2RA-ACL may by applied by people who do not consider reconstructive surgery ACL or do not qualify for this surgery. Regarding orthoses, they are beneficial due to the fact that they improve efficiency and aesthetics of walk. In addition to this, they often make it possible to play sport despite instability of knee joint.
As far as both construction and look of splint are concerned, they are patented by Reh4Mat company in The Office of Harmonization for the Internal Market (OHIM).
