Orthoses, Lower Limb, Knee, Immobilizer

Definition : Knee lower-limb orthoses designed for maximum restriction of movements and/or total immobilization of the knee joint. These immobilizers usually consist of prefabricated or custom-made orthoses including long semi-rigid thigh and leg cuffs that unload the pressure on the knee joint, reducing partially or completely its motion. Immobilizer knee orthoses are intended mainly to reduce the pressure on the knee in patients with severe arthritis destruction of the knee joint; they may be also used during rehabilitation after traumatic injuries or knee surgery.
