A multi-talented knee orthosis
SofTec OA can be easily adjusted and offers targeted pressure and pain relief for the medial capsule of knee joint. The semi-rigid SofTec knit contains an integral functional element with pressure cushions, carbon fiber shells and an air bladder system. This functional element adjustable off-loading of the medial capsule to address pain from osteoarthritis. External fine adjustment of the orthosis is possible by means of four non-elastic straps and the air bladder system. The orthosis provides functional control of all types of motion.
Two integrated viscoelastic pads above and below the kneecap counteract swelling and hematoma during motion. At the beginning, the anatomically contoured shells can be heated and adapted to the patient's individual leg shape. The pressure can be changed at any time depending on the activity or rest period: this is done by filling or emptying the air bladder system to increase or reduce compression. The SofTec OA thus helps to relieve pain.
