- Next fasten the panels located at the bottom then top of the splint using the blue Velcro tab, then tighten the anthracite straps, passing through the loops, at the bottom then top.
- If necessary, readjust the straps just above and below the knee.
- N.B. : The top of the splint must not impede flexion of the leg at the groin.
- Adaptability of the Genuimmo splint
- The straps located just above and below the knee are height-adjustable, meaning that they can be adapted to fit the patient’s shape and condition (presence of a scar following surgery, wound, etc.).
- The knee splint can be opened on the outside, particularly in the event of gracilis-semitendinosus autograft ACL reconstruction. To do this, simply unfasten the blue hook located in the middle of the splint and pass it under the upright before fastening it at the back of the knee splint.
