Splint for the treatment of post-traumatic and post-operative conditions and a good reliever for conditions following the luxation of the patella.
– Injuries to the capsule ligaments and the meniscus.
– Conditions following capsule ligament reconstruction.
– Fractures, which do not need bordering joints to be immobilized (e.g. non-dislocated fractures of the patella and the tibia head.
– Conditions following the luxation of the patella.
– Acute bursitis, post-bursectomy conditions.
– Acute pain during rheumatic afflictions, tendon periostosis.
– Pull the side rods (2 off) out of the containers and adapt to the inner and outer sides by shaping to the contours of the leg. For models with an angle of 10° or 20°, the crown of the curvature of the stabilizer should be at approximately the level of the inner or outer joint cavity.
– Push the rods back into the container. Please ensure that the now shaped pairs of rods are utilized in the proper side. In stabilizers with a 10° or 20° angle, the short pieces should be placed in the upper femur area.
– Mobilize the velcro strips and support the leg on the extended knee splint. Close the splint by overlapping the upper edges. The patella should then be localized in the centre of the void provided for it. Thread the velcro strips through the buckles and fix in place on the opposite side.
In the event of pressure areas, the stabilizers must be checked to make sure their contours are correct.
