Hypex Lite – For all stages of rehabilitation

The Hypex® Lite Knee Brace is used during all stages of rehabiltation - from post-surgical/post-trauma to full recovery and enables an individual step by step adjustment until the physiological extension of the other leg is reached.
The degree of extension can be fixed at an infinitely adjustable angle, in order to avoid contractures at the early post-surgical stage.
