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.
