Spring tension can be switched on and off without tools and without varying the set spring tension
- Infinitely variable adjustment of the redression range in flexion

Mode of Operation

The CDS® Knee Brace Flexion functions according to the CDS®-principle and has been designed to treat a flexion deficit of the knee. The brace applies a dynamic low load prolonged stretch to stimulate growth in the contracted tissue. The adjustable redression range protects the tissue from painful overstretching.
