Active people often suffer from torn ACL. In USA is done more than 100 000 knee repairs (arthroscopies) every year. Usually, it’s connected with the athletes, who train a lot of pivoting motions (soccer, basketball, American football) and skiers.
Two cruciate ligaments: anterior (ACL) an posterior (PCL) play a key role in knee stabilization. ACL prevents against shifting of the tibia (translation) with the femur and controls the rotation. The function of the PCL is to prevent the femur from sliding off the anterior edge of the tibia and to prevent the tibia from displacing posterior to the femur. Two more ligaments MCL and LCL stabilize the knee in the frontal plane. Two meniscus (medial and lateral) help to absorb forces during activity so that the bone surfaces are not damaged.
The ACL injury might be isolated (rarely) or in connection with MCL, meniscus or articular cartilage damage.
Undesirable but common injury position is called ‘no return’, which involves valgus knee with contradirectional rotation femur and shin.
In case of severe ACL injury, often common with meniscus, the treatment bases on the surgery – arthroscopy. After this repair, there is necessary to immobilize the joint in special post-op knee brace. The best knee brace solution is our new knee brace with range of motion adjustment.
Our universal knee brace is the best solution for post-op immobilization.
4Scope is lightweight brace to the patient’s leg. It’s equipped with monocentric splints providing flexion and extension control. The splints are made of hot covered high quality aluminium. They are anatomic-shaped what provides perfect fitting and stabilization.
The knee brace has full range of motion hinges from 30 degrees of extension to 120 degrees of flexion with 15 degrees increments. You can change the ROM easy without any additional tools. Hinges are made of plastic with carbon fibres what makes them lightweight and neutral for the skin.
4Scope is one size, because of telescopic splints and innovative press-slide system.
The knee brace has two thigh and calf straps with anatomic-shaped buckles. The straps have length adjustment what improves the perfect fitting even in people with massive thighs and smaller calves and other disproportions.
What’s more, anti-migration silicone system prevents against the brace slipping.
4Scope is equipped with system of quick release buckles for ease of application. The system allows to ‘remember’ the length of every strap. After putting the brace on again, the system ensures the same brace fitting and compression.
Post-op knee brace 4Scope is universal size item for both legs to accommodate a wide variety of patients.
