albrecht Jack PCL new generation
PCL - the challenge
PCL tears were traditionally treated with reconstructive surgery. Surgeons observed elongations of the PCL of up to 50% following surgery, which resulted in knee instability. The root cause identified was gravity, pulling the tibia into a posterior drawer position.
albrecht Jack PCL - the solution
In the 90s Prof. Jakob, one of the foremost experts in the field of knee orthopaedics, ventured to develop a mechanical device for PCL rehabilitation. The Jack PCL allows for early functional rehabilitaiton without endangering knee stability.
New Generation - proven functionality, new design
Celebrating 15 years of successful post-surgical and conservative PCL rehabilitation, a new generation of the albrecht Jack PCL is launched. Smaller hinges, slimer aesthetiques, an extended sizing system and further optimisations await starting March 2017.
