Orthosis to change the path of the patella
Patella path influencing, with elements that can be removed according to the indication
The JuzoPro Patella Xtec Plus is used to treat patellofemoral pain syndrome. The orthosis features a pad that, thanks to its nubs, stimulates the muscles on the inside of the thigh (m. vastus medialis). The horseshoe-shaped pad is constructed in such a way that the patella can be centred using the closure mechanism. A second pad relieves the patellar tendon and alleviates pain thanks to its nubs.
In the acute phase, it is recommended that patients wear the JuzoPro Patella Xtec Plus orthosis as this counteracts swelling thanks to the compression class 2 compression knit. As treatment success continues, elements can be removed from the orthosis in consultation with the doctor. To do this, the JuzoPro Patella Xtec Plus must be turned inside out. Then remove the centring pad and attach it to the included patellar tendon strap using the touch fastener.
