FORMED FOR FUNCTIONALITY
The GenuLoc orthosis allows the recently injured or post-op knee to be immobilized with the necessary stability. Plastic bars stretch the breathable and washable supporting material and adapt themselves to the angle of the lateral aluminum bars. The aluminum bars are anatomically contoured behind the knee and hold the knee at a 20-degree flexion angle. This angle can be altered at any time as treatment requires.
THE POWER OF REST
VELCRO® Brand Fastening System makes the GenuLoc orthosis easier to put on and take off. While the dorsal aluminum bars remain rigid, the lateral VELCRO® Brand Fastening System can be used to adjust the leg circumference. Cushioned pads behind the knees prevent the orthosis slipping and also allow for lying positions over longer periods of time. The knee is securely immobilized so that the healing process can take place without interruption.
All supports are engineered to perform one or more functions, including:
- Providing circular compression to aid circulation, promote healing and limit swelling
- Helping to restrict medial/lateral motion
- Anchoring the knee cap to help promote healing
- Helping to relieve pain,
- Limiting stress and stain over tendons, ligaments, and nerves around the joint
