 Key Benefits

High Level of medio-lateral support to aid in pain management, assist the loading capacity of the joint and twisting of the knee. Treats post-operative, secondary prevention and arthritis of the joint.

  • This brace is a thin, comfortable material with silicone inserts for better proprioception and adhesion to the skin, it won't slip or slide.
  • It allows normal walking by not hindering the flexion and extension of the knee.

The Push Med Knee provides substantial support for the knee joint in the medio-lateral direction. The knee is supported by two non-axial leaf spring hinges that follow the natural rotation movements of the knee in a unique way. This means that flexion and extension of the knee are not hindered. The band construction ensures that the hinges remain close to the joint.

 How does the PUSH MED Knee Brace differ from others?

The hinge on this knee brace doesn't compare to those with a central axis like other hinged knee braces. The unique leaf spring hinges on PUSH MED Knee Brace can bend on any axis, so the knee can bend freely on any angle whilst still maintaining medio-lateral stability.

Contrast with Central Axis Hinges

  • Hinge bends on any axis following the natural rotation of the knee
  • Hinge aids in proprioception of the knee joint, no mechanical feel
  • Hinge promotes active movement of knee joint whilst assisting loading capacity

Remains Functional during use

Our Med Knee is designed not to slip, however if it were to slip or not worn in line with the patella, the hinges would still provide full rotation. The advantages of this hinge is that it can bend on any axis allowing full flexion and extension, which is unique to most hinges that only have a central axis.

A central axis may still provide full flexion and extension, but the PUSH Med Knee is designed to feel more fluent with the joint and less mechanical.

    • SympressT used in combination with foams creates so-called comfort zones on sensitive locations.
