Project description

This knee brace is used for the correction of the pathology of knee Varus or knee Valgus. It consists of three parts made of carbon fiber and it can be customized for both children and adults.
It is a device that operates in direct contact with the skin but that it has no limitations or contraindications.
Patients are usually treated surgically. If this is not possible, the application of specific tutors, which are meant to contain the valgus angle in the frontal plane, is used.
Moreover, the use of brace allows to immobilize the joint in the post-traumatic period or stabilize it compensating ligament deficiency.
