The SecuTec Genu is a hard-frame hinged brace which provides maximum stability to the knee joint.
The SecuTec Genu is produced from aeroplane aluminium, making it sturdy yet very light-weight. It is specifically designed to externally stabilise the knee immediately after a severe ligament injury or operation. This brace is also very user-friendly as numbered fasteners are featured, making it easy for the patient to secure it on correctly.
Flexion and extension knee movements can easily be limited on the SecuTec Genu through a small fastening on the side hinges. The SecuTec Genu is suitable for all stages of recovery as a result of the ingenuity of this joint limitation feature. Unique to the SecuTec Genu are the six integrated straps on the front and back of the brace. These straps help to stabilise and unload pressure off the knee joint and onto the surrounding thigh and calf muscles.
For severe injuries involving swelling and pain management, we recommend the SofTec Genu.
