- The Agilium Patella can help to relieve pain in case of retropatellar osteoarthritis, the term used to describe wear and tear to the back surface of the kneecap.
Ottobock’s Agilium line consists of braces. These are specially designed to support patients with knee osteoarthritis, and each works in a di erent way to address the various characteristics of the condition. To encourage osteoarthritis patients to wear the braces as much as possible, they have been specially designed for everyday use. They are also extremely comfortable.
Did you know?
An osteoarthritis patient takes around 1,200 tablets a year to manage pain. But these can lead to damage to the organs such as the stomach, bowel and liver.
So a brace from the Agilium line is a good alternative. It’s worthwile for anyone with knee osteoarthritis to test the e ectiveness of the braces themselves.
The Agilium Patella is particularly e ective in relieving patel- lofemoral osteoarthritis, i.e. that which occurs behind the kneecap. It’s an excellent example of how uid the transition from a support to a brace can be. The Agilium Patella consists of a fabric framework with stabilising elements. It uses a dynamic re- centring technique to ensure that the patella is aligned precisely in the middle. This veri ably reduces pressure on the patella.
Agilium Patella - Dynamic patellar tracking
• The patella is only guided as much as the movement demands.
Agilium Patella - High level of comfort
By adjusting the settings on the patella bar, the Agilium Patella can adapt to various everyday situations.
The padding on the patella bar makes it comfortable to wear – even for those with sensitive kneecaps.
The Agilium Patella can help to relieve pain in case of retropatellar osteoarthritis, the term used to describe wear and tear to the back surface of the kneecap. With its combination of a fabric body, stabilising elements and dynamic realignment technology (a spring mechanism which ensures correct tracking of the kneecap), the Agilium Patella centres the kneecap with precision. Excessive strain is no longer placed on the joint cartilage, and pressure behind the kneecap is demonstrably reduced.
Handy quick-release closures and loops make it easier for you to put on and take off the brace. The breathable materials make it pleasant to wear and are also designed to ensure the brace sits firmly in place and does not slip when you move. The extra padding on the patella support ensures that the brace fits comfortably over sensitive patellas.
The Agilium Patella is very lightweight and can be worn discreetly under everyday clothing thanks to its slim design. This makes it barely noticeable. This orthosis can reduce pain, enabling you to master day to day life with ease. Everyday movements such as climbing stairs are once again possible.
