SoftPro® Static Knee Orthosis
Orthotic therapy to facilitate maintenance or rehabilitation of the knee in the treatment of joint stiffness or non-fixed adaptive tissue shortening contractures of the knee joint. A single setting double upright static brace that may be used to maintain end range or to incrementally restore range of motion through progressive extension stretching with frequent brace modification. The brace hinges can be set with 5 to 10 degrees of additional extension from comfortable passive end range to apply a gentle stretch on the shortened tissue. The strapping system allows the fitter to initiate the gentle progressive stretch of the knee as the knee cap is applied creating a gentle extension of the shortened tissue. By increasing wearing time to three to six hours per use, the Total End Range Time (TERT) of device wear allows the shortened tissue to lengthen over time. The hinges must be frequently modified to maintain a therapeutic stretch of the tissue as device wear continues.
