  • Limitations:

  • - Extension limitation at: 0°, 10°, 20°, 30°

Wearing directions

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.
