Hypex Lite Knieschiene - luxury collection

Knee brace with 4-point principle and extension / flexion restriction

Full physiological mobility

Hypex Lite – for all phases of rehabilitation

Functional braces are used to relieve and stabilize the joint and ligaments following trauma and surgical procedures. Their function is to protect joints and ligaments during rehabilitation without their becoming stiff.
Our braces confer protection and guidance during the healing process and allow a gradual and controlled return to full physiological mobility.

The Hypex® Lite knee brace is used in all phases of rehabilitation – from post-op / post-trauma until full recovery and allows gradual and individual adjustment until there is full physiological extension equal to the contralateral side.

The degree of extension can be fixed at any desired angle in order to avoid the development of contractures in the early postoperative phase.
