Provides stability to an injured or unstable knee by allowing normal knee joint motion with proper settings or stops with in a selected range.
Indicated for post-injury or post-operative management of knee joint.
Settings from 0 to 120 degrees flexion and between 0 to 75 degrees extension in 7.5 degree increments.
Hook and loop closures for uniform compression and support.
Wrap-around design provides stability to injured or unstable knee.
Rigid plastic supports offer greater stability and increase patient activity.
Available in three length: 18"(45.7cm), 22"(55.8cm) and 26"(60cm)
Apply foam wraps to leg and wrap around the leg while in prone position.
Adjust the foam wraps and fasten the hook and loop closure.
Be sure thigh wrap must be positioned 2" (5 cm) above the knee and calf wrap must be positioned directly beneath the knee.
Please follow the doctor's instruction and set hinges from 0 to 120 degrees flexion and 0 to 75 degrees extension in 7.5 degree increments.
Apply the circular knee pad to the back of the hinge.
The hinge forms the uprights to fit the curves of the leg.
Position and press the lateral side bar assembly onto the cuffs along the middle of the leg, centering the hinge pivot axes, slightly above the knee joint line.
Repeat for the medial side bar assembly.

The knee joint includes the tibiofemoral, patellofemoral and superior tibiofibular joints. There are two menisci which are semilunar-shaped discs of fibrocartilage between the femoral condyles and tibial plateaus. Their main functions are shock absorption and stability enhancement. There are many ligaments to provide stability and prevent excessive motion. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are the key ligaments for stabilization of the knee joint.
