- Paresis of the leg musculature resulting in hyperextension of the knee, for example after stroke, hernia of an intervertebral disc in the lumbar spine, peripheral nerve damage etc.
Hyperextension is prevented using a classic three-point system. Crossed inelastic straps in the hollow of the knee work together with inelastic straps in front as well as lockable lateral joint components. The joint components permit extension and flexion limitation at increments of 10°.PCM (phase change material) serves as the temperature-regulating textile base material.
PCM is very soft and pleasant to wear. It prevents the accumulation of heat so that the orthosis can also be worn for extended periods of time. In order to take full advantage of the material characteristics, the orthosis should be worn directly on the skin. Customers with good hand function can put the orthosis on independently.The Genu Neurexa is machine washable at 40° C.
The product is designed for use on one patient only. Re-use of the product is not permitted.The daily duration of use and period of application are dependent on the medical indication.
Size: XS - XL.
The size selection of the orthosis is based on the knee circumference most important 15 cm below midpatella, second hand 15 cm above midpatella.
