This is a stable knee brace made from a flat knitted compression material.
The brace has also an integrated silicone pad for patella support. It has been fitted with the new MR4997 Active hinge made from A6061 aluminium with extension and flexion stops. The stops are made from injection molded nylon and can stop extension in 0°, 10°, 20°, 30° and 40° as well as flexion 45°, 60°, 75° and 90°.
The hinge covers have a special design which makes it possible to adjust the range of motion when the hinge is fitted in the brace. The hinge covers are extremely durable meaning the joint won't break through the covers in time.
The hyper extension strap in the back of the brace has a low profile and can be adjusted in the front by micro hook tabs. The thigh and shin part of the brace are fitted with adjustable non elastic straps. For conical thighs there is a new option called PLUS. These sizes are available from M-XXXL and have 3 cm wider circumference over the thigh but the same circumference around the knee and calf as the standard sizes.
