MOS-Genu

Orthosis for the correction and stabilisation of the knee joint

 

Features

• The aluminum frame is anatomically contoured and can subsequently be reshaped as required.

• The long version can readily be converted to the standard length by removing the extension shells.

• The shell pads are equipped with a breathable, nonslip, skin-friendly coating.

• The monocentric joints are aligned with Nietert’s compromise pivot axis and permit restriction of extension and flexion in 10° intervals.

• Condylar pads of differing thickness can be used to compensate for knee swelling of varying severity.

• An optional popliteal strap is used to stabilize the knee in the event of posterior instability or genu recurvatum.

 

Mode of action

• The Varus / valgus adjustment relieves the relevant knee compartment
and / or the collateral ligament according to the 3-point principle.

• The knee orthosis is based on the known 4-point-Principle and thus counteracts the anterior drawer phenomenon.

• The frame construction stabilizes the knee joint against varus / valgus forces; the long version has a longer lever arm.

• The popliteal strap takes the strain off the orthosis hinges by preventing hyperextension.

• The dorsal pressure exerted by the popliteal strap counteracts the posterior drawer phenomenon.

• Possible constraining forces exerted by the orthosis on the knee are minimized through adaptation of the frame to the monocentric hinges.

 

Indications

  • Support for the affected compartment in cases of
    varus / valgus osteoarthritis of the knee

  • Rupture of the anterior and / or posterior cruciate ligament (ACL / PCL)

  • Severe and / or complex instability (traumatic, degenerative;
    e. g. “unhappy triad”)

  • Collateral ligament injury

  • To restrict the range of movement of the knee
    (e. g. after meniscal suturing or meniscal implantation)

  • Genu recurvatum (with cross-strap)

 

MOS-Genu long:

  • Corrective osteotomies

  • Complex ligament reconstructions

  • Fractures located close to joints, implant surgery and protection

  • Patellar fracture
    (conservative and post-operative)

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between the GenuTrain and the GenuTrain P3?

The GenuTrain P3 covers more of the knee, including the lower quads and hamstring. Using a higher grade compression with extensive gel support and a medial strap, it's designed to give a much higher level of patellar support than the standard GenuTrain.

Can I wear this during sport?

The GenuTrain P3 is perfect for wear at any level of sport, and is worn by international athletes on the playing field the world over.

How does the patella tracking work?

The Patella tracking in the P3 works by combining a specialised gel support with an inbuilt adjustable medial strap. This works to prevent the kneecap migrating away from the centre of the joint while still allowing for regular movement.

What injuries/conditions does the P3 treat?

The P3 is great for patella tendinitis, kneecap fractures, IT Band problems, patella dislocation and tracking, lower quad knee issues and more!

What is this item's TGA certification number?

303552.
