Global Knee Brace

Global Knee

Global Knee

Hely & Weber just released a new knee brace for bi and tri-compartmental osteoarthritis.  There is often a significant amount of time that passes between when a patient is told they need have their knee replaced and when the surgery actually takes place.  This knee brace is designed to help patients during the delay.

There are several reasons for the delay.  Sometimes there are necessary medical needs that must be addressed, or a patient may need to lose weight.  Sometimes patients just aren’t ready for the surgery, whether it be logistical or emotional readiness.  And many times its conservative care guidelines dictated by health insurance providers.

The struts on this knee brace can apply a varus or valgus force when molded with bending irons as well as accommodate a bulbous or knee deformed by arthritis.
