50K4-1 Agilium Freestep 2.0
The Agilium Freestep has an innovative mode of action that has been biomechanically and clinically tested. What’s unusual about the Agilium Freestep is that it’s designed as an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO). This means the knee is not restricted. But above all, this design means that the forces generated during a step can be utilised.
- For patients in all age groups, but especially:
- when knee surgery is contraindicated
- when a knee orthosis would be problematic, e.g. for obese patients
- as support for osteoarthritis treatment
- Fitting leaves the knee free
- Brace cannot slip out of place
- High acceptance thanks to its slim, comfortable design
- Dynamic – rather than static – means the effect occurs only when the knee is loaded
|Indications||Unicompartmental osteoarthritis of the knee
Pre-operative: to check the indication for a valgising corrective osteotomy for varus osteoarthritis of the knee (brace test)
Post-operative: after procedures in the cartilage structure and meniscus surgery requiring unilateral relief
|How it works||For the lateral brace – medial osteoarthritis of the knee
- Reduces eversion of the foot in the lower ankle joint for medial osteoarthritis of the knee.
- Applies lateral force to the lower leg.
- Reduces the varising moment (medial osteoarthritis of the knee).
For the medial brace – lateral osteoarthritis of the knee
- Reduces inversion of the foot in the lower ankle joint for lateral osteoarthritis of the knee.
- Reduces the valgising moment (lateral osteoarthritis of the knee).
- Relieves the lateral compartment for patients with lateral osteoarthritis of the knee.
