Living with knee Instability as a result of stroke

When the leg muscles are weakened as the result of a stroke or peripheral nerve damage, walking is often challenging. You feel instability in the leg and knee and your knee may also hyperextend when you put weight on it.

Here the Genu Neurexa offers optimum support with metal splints and inelastic straps to protect and stabilise the knee. The orthosis prevents hyperextension of the knee joint while still enabling movement. It also offers optimum comfort, being made of the temperature-regulating material PCM (phase change material). It is extremely soft and comfortable, and should be worn directly on the skin in order to take full advantage of the fabric’s characteristics.
