CDS Knee Brace Flexion

Dynamic spring-loaded knee orthosis

CDS® Knee Brace Flexion

Indications

  • Joint contractures:

– After surgery
– After conservative treatment of capsular ligament injuries
– Before and after joint replacement
– In arthrosis and chronic polyarthritis
– After burns
– After strokes
– After spinal cord injuries
– Paralysis (discrete palsy of peripheral origin)
– After cranio-cerebral trauma (CCT)

  • To prevent new contractures after arthrolysis
  • Conservative and postoperative indications, where active extension of the knee is contraindicated

Features

  • Therapy in flexion
  • New! Smaller hinge with established features:

- Individual adjustment of the spring tension
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

  • New! Optimized shell- and strapsystem:

- High wearing comfort thanks to air-permeable, light aluminium shell elements
- High flexibility thanks to adjustable shell elements

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.
