Siliconized pads for the SecuTec Genu and SecuTec OA

High activity, the shape of the leg or the strength of the tissue can be responsible for hard frame orthoses to slip easily. For the SecuTec Genu and SecuTec OA, there are now two siliconized pads on the lower leg, which provide support in these cases.

The upholstery available as a spare part have small spots with very thinly applied silicone film on their microfiber cover which have an anti-slip effect when in contact to the skin. The two pads are exchanged with the prefabricated pads on the proximal strap of the lower leg frame, one at the front over the tibia and one at the back above the calf.

The siliconized belt pads in sizes 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 and 7 are compatible with the sizes of the lower leg frames of the SecuTec Genu and SecuTec OA.

The SecuTec Genu stabilizes the knee using the 4-point principle for ligament and meniscus injuries. SecuTec OA relieves pressure on the medial or lateral knee compartments based on the 3-point principle for moderate to severe gonarthrosis.
