DESCRIPTION

This brace is designed to stabilize the motion of the knee joint, keeping it aligned during flexion and extension movements. Constructed entirely from breathable materials, the next-to-skin layer is made from anti-bacterial and anti-allergy fabric. Its complex structure, equipped with patella stabilizer, offers comfortable containment of the patellar compartment, useful in cases of associated conditions (medial or lateral ligaments, anterior or posterior cruciate ligament and patellar instability). Two patented, multicentric, adjustable aluminum rods are included to control flexion and extension quickly and easily. The rods are equipped with bearings supporting the condyles and rigid tibial and femoral supports to control rotation.
This brace conforms to the requirements of policy 93/42/EEC re. medi- cal devices and Italian legislation (DL 24 February 1997, no. 46).
