Indications
conservative treatment of pronounced unilateral, medial or lateral osteoarthrosis and arthritis of the knee
permanent care where surgery is contra-indicated
interim care until decision has been taken on possible surgical procedures such as correction osteotomy or knee joint replacement
for relieving weight-bearing after surgery for medial or lateral fractures of the tibial head

Mode of action
correction of the lateral or medial joint space by the 3-point principle
pain relief by reducing weight-bearing on the affected side of the joint
decreases further capsule irritation/synovitis

Features
individually adjustable varus and valgus angles with a extremely flat joint; during the course of treatment the varus/valgus angles can be readjusted according to the healing process
pneumatic condyle pads for additional pressure distribution on the joint (using the hand-pump supplied)
straps passing diagonally across the back of the joint to prevent rotation of the orthosis on the knee
very light construction and easy to put on
