Product information

Indications, how it works, features & benefits
Body Region Knee
Indications Paresis of leg muscles resulting in knee hyperextension, for example after a stroke, lumbar disc herniation, peripheral nerve damage, etc.
How it works The Genu Neurexa stabilises the knee; at the same time, the patella is stabilised, hyperextension is prevented and collateral instability is reduced. The components of the brace – lockable bilateral aluminium splints and rigid, crossed straps in the hollow of the knee – offer good mechanical stability in combination with the large textile cover. A positive influence on the proprioceptors, which affect the sensorimotor system, is also achieved. The user obtains good knee control during active rehabilitation training such as gait training or motion training from chair to bed, from chair to toilet, etc. The Genu Neurexa can also relieve the wearer's pain, as the brace holds the patella in position and prevents involuntary movement of the knee, hyperextension and lateral movements.
Features & benefits A classical support according to the three-point principal using rigid straps and lockable splints.
The joint components permit restriction of extension and flexion in 10° increments.
Circular circumferential straps
Made of temperature-regulating Outlast® material, with properties that counteract heat development and extend the product's daily duration of use.
Enhanced wearer comfort due to optimal material selection and strap arrangement
Frontally open version makes it easy for therapists, family members and wearers to put on the brace.
Machine washable at 40 °C (104 °F)
