Long, functional soft brace with flexion/ extension limitation
Collamed / Collamed long is a knee soft brace with extension / flexion limit. The product is exclusively to be used for the orthotic fitting of the knee and only on intact skin.
Optimal stabilisation using 4-point principle
Safe collateral stabilisation by riged Frame
Extension and flexion limitation protects against damaging joint movements and relieves injured structures
Improvement of propriocetion to increase the own guidance and stabilisation of knee joint
Prevention of hyperextension
- Extension limitation at: 0°, 10°, 20°, 30°
- Flexion limitation at: 0°, 10°, 20°, 30°, 45°, 60°, 75°, 90°
- Immobilisation: 0°, 10°, 20°, 30°
Only change the extension and flexion limits on instruction from your doctor or orthotist. In order to prevent hyperextension, always insert extension stops or 0° stops. The stops define the exact excursion of the orthosis. In difficult soft-tissue conditions, e.g. where the soft-tissues are under com press ion, it may be necessary to insert a larger stop to limit the joint movement to the desired excursion. In addition, make sure that the orthosis hinges are correctly positioned: the middles of the hinges should be in one line with the upper border of the patella. The hinge must lie behind the midline of the leg.
