Rigid-frame knee orthosis, perfectly adapted to everyday life.
An operation is often unavoidable after knee ligament injuries, with the anterior cruciate ligaments being affected most often. After an operation or also in conservative therapy without surgery, the Genu Arexa rigid frame orthosis stabilises the knee during the healing process and prevents undesirable movements. It also permits a controlled transition to full weight bearing. Early mobilisation is the best way to ensure that full weight can quickly be placed on the knee.
The Genu Arexa has been prescribed by doctors for many years. Its functional design has already received many international awards. Your orthotist can adapt it to your individual requirements in a few simple steps. Thanks to its solid construction and outstanding wearer comfort, the Genu Arexa is an excellent choice to meet the demands of everyday mobility.
Security after the operation
After an operation, the transplant is not yet capable of bearing as much weight. However, basic research shows that it can be protected by knee orthoses such as the Genu Arexa during this period. Your doctor or orthopaedic technician can limit the range of motion in just a few steps, and then gradually increase it. The knee width is individually adjustable as well, for example to adapt the orthosis to the swelling of the knee.
You want to be free of complaints as quickly as possible after an injury. The sooner you move your knee again – naturally in consultation with your doctor – the faster you can bear normal weight. The Genu Arexa provides you with the safety you need and alleviates possible fears of incorrect movements following a ligament injury. This helps you gain confidence in your knee and allows you to once again perform activities of daily living like you used to.
Putting on the orthosis
In the course of daily use, many patients particularly appreciate the pleasant wearer comfort of the Genu Arexa. The orthosis is also very easy to put on and take off. Thanks to what is known as the frontal contact, you do not have to slide into the orthosis. All you need to do is place the Genu Arexa over the leg and fasten the hook-and-loop closures. For your orientation, the straps are also numbered in the sequence you have to fasten them.
The Genu Arexa rigid-frame orthosis can be individually adjusted for you. The plastic shells automatically adapt to the contours of your leg – for ultimate wearer comfort.
