A MULTI-TALENTED KNEE ORTHOSIS
SofTec® OA can be adjusted in many ways and offers targeted pressure relief for the knee joint. The flexible SofTec® vector knit contains an integral functional element with pressure cushions, carbon fiber shells and an air bladder system. This functional element can be removed prior to washing or making any modifications. External fine adjustment of the orthosis is possible by means of four non-elastic straps and the air bladder system. The knee cannot twist and the kneecap is held securely in its centered position.
Two integral pads above and below the kneecap counteract swelling and hematoma during every movement. At the beginning, the anatomically contoured shells can be heated and adapted to the patient's individual leg shape. The pressure can be changed at any time depending on the activity or rest period: this is done by filling or emptying the air bladder system to increase or reduce compression. The SofTec® OA multifunctional orthosis thus helps to relieve pain.
