Description

The SofTec Genu provides ultimate stabilisation to the knee joint and immediate care following ligament ruptures.

A special compression knit material is featured in the SofTec Genu. This knitted material is extremely comfortable and anatomically shaped to the knee, helping stabilise the thigh muscles supporting the knee joint. The SofTec Genu is also designed with a special access zip, providing easier access to put on. 

Unique to the SofTec Genu are the special lateral hinges which can be modified to restrict flexion and extension movements of the knee. These hinges adapt to the knee’s pivot points and are dynamic in supporting and offloading the knee joint. Four inelastic Velcro straps are featured at the front and back of the orthosis. The knee joint is stabilised and secured through the use of these straps, along with the lateral aluminium sidebars. 

We recommend the GenuTrain S Hinged Knee Brace for people who experience less severe ligament injuries.

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.
