KNEE
The knee joint includes the tibiofemoral, patellofemoral and superior tibiofibular joints. There are two menisci which are semilunar-shaped discs of fibrocartilage between the femoral condyles and tibial plateaus. Their main functions are shock absorption and stability enhancement. There are many ligaments to provide stability and prevent excessive motion. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are the key ligaments for stabilization of the knee joint.

MOTION CONTROL KNEE SPLINT
 


  • Provides stability to an injured or unstable knee by allowing normal joint motion with proper settings or stops within a selected range.
  • Semi-rigid frame and strong straps prevent rotation and brace migration.
  • May be molded for a customized fit.
  • Provides immobilization in an extended position.
    Designed for the functional management of ACL/PCL instability.
    Rigid plastic supports offer greater stability and increase patient activity.
  • Suitable for use following early cast removal, post-operative rehabilitation, or whenever a combination of motion control and knee immobilization is indicated.
  • Available in two length: 18"(45.7cm) and 20"(50.8cm)

  • Apply foam wraps to leg and wrap around the leg while in prone position.
  • Adjust the foam wraps and fasten the hook and loop closure.
  • Be sure thigh wrap must be positioned 2" (5 cm) above the patella (knee) and calf wrap must be positioned directly beneath the patella.
  • Please follow the doctor's instruction and set hinges from 0 to 120 degrees flexion and 0 to 75 degrees extension in 7.5 degree increments.
  • Apply the circular knee pad to the back of the hinge.
  • The hinge forms the uprights to fit the curves of the leg.
  • Position and press the lateral side bar assembly onto the cuffs along the middle of the leg, centering the hinge pivot axes, slightly above the knee joint line.
  • Repeat for the medial side bar assembly.
  • Thread through the buckles and fasten all straps, hook and loop closure for secure fit.

  • Post surgical use
  • Collateral ligament injury
  • Cruciate ligament injury
  • Knee instability
