Immobilisation of the knee joint
How does it work?/Mode of action
Occasionally pain may develop in the calf during the first few hours of use. If this has not reduced considerably after 24 hours, the doctor should be contacted. You should also contact your doctor in the case of sudden pain, swelling, loss of sensation or a feeling of coldness in the foot or if the toes become blue. In this event, while you are waiting for the doctor, loosen the hook and loop fasteners and keep the leg completely still until you are given further instructions.
Open all the straps and place the orthosis under the patient‘s leg. Note: The side parts of the medi Classic can be lengthend or shortened. Open the hook and loop on each side and fix it again, in the postion you prefer.
If necessary, the medial and lateral rods can be moulded.
Wrap the sides around the leg so that the kneecap remains uncovered.
First close the thigh straps, then the calf straps. Tighten the hook and loop fastener directly above the knee again.
Aluminum, Cotton, Polyurethane, Polyester
Remove the stabilisation rods before washing. Close the hook and loop fastener before washing. Wash the product at 30 °C by hand using a mild detergent such as woolwash. Rinse the product thoroughly. Leave to dry naturally. Do not dry on the radiator or in direct sunlight. Do not remove stains using benzene or chemical detergents. Soap residues can cause skin irritations and wearing of the material.
