Genu Arexa Knee Orthosis
Knee stabilisation after a stroke
Preventing overextension of the knee
A stroke or peripheral nerve damage can lead to paralysis in the leg. Walking is often difficult, and you may perceive the leg and knee as unstable so that you overextend the knee as soon as you put weight on it.
Here the Genu Neurexa provides good support. It stabilises the knee and prevents overextension of the knee joint. Bending the knee continues to be possible. You can start using the Genu Neurexa even during rehabilitation and gait training – after consulting with your doctor or therapist of course.
The front closure makes it possible to put on the orthosis in various ways.
The splints are individually adjustable by your doctor or orthopaedic technician, so that knee movement is limited as required.
The crossover straps prevent over-extension (hyperextension) of the knee joint.
The climate control material (Outlast) counteracts heat development. This reduces perspiration and the orthosis can also be worn for longer periods of time.
