The new Patella Pro from Otto Bock
Innovative new knee brace improves mobility, strength and coordination .
Otto Bock launches Patella Pro to relieve the effects of anterior knee pain and assist recovery as part of an intensive rehabilitation and physiotherapy programme
Otto Bock Healthcare has launched an innovative patella re-centring orthosis to combat the effects of anterior knee pain and luxation of the knee joint. Patella Pro maintains the correct physiological position of the kneecap by guiding it along the patellofemoral groove and removing unwanted pressure via a guidance system operating parallel to the angle of flexion. An intensive rehabilitation and physiotherapy programme using the orthosis can help individuals regain or improve their mobility, strength and coordination.
Patella Pro is an ideal solution for the 25% of physically active people suffering from anterior knee pain, the most frequent activity-related injury of the joint. It also offers support against luxation, which is common during movement of the knee between 10 to 30 degrees of flexion or extension. The orthosis assures medialisation of the patella without overcorrection when the knee joint is going into flexion, coming out of flexion and when the user is standing. It is individually adjustable and suitable for a range of users and activities.
Reduced elasticity of soft tissue surrounding the knee joint can change its natural biomechanics and increase the non-physiological activation of the parallel musculature. As a result, excessive compression forces in the patellofemoral joint can permanently damage its surfaces and lead to painful symptoms. Patella Pro offers stability and comfort in an adaptable, slim and lightweight design to help relieve stiffness, feelings of blockage and general pain when exercising or walking up and down stairs. It also offers support against more serious conditions including hypermobility, hypomobility and muscle atrophy.
"For individuals suffering from anterior knee pain, Patella Pro is an innovative orthosis offering a functional, dynamic re-centring technique that can be used in therapy, treatment and as part of a tailored rehabilitation programme,” states Andrew McLean, Sales & Marketing Director at Otto Bock Healthcare. "The orthosis relieves the pressure on soft tissue around the knee joint, which is often inflamed, so that suitable conditions for physiological regeneration are created. Orthotic supports such as Patella Pro enhance recovery and wellbeing by giving users greater mobility, strength and coordination.”Suitability for Patella Pro will be assessed by a GP, physiotherapist, orthotist or in a hospital or orthopaedic clinic.
