Semi-stiff knee brace for general stability, lateral and medial collateral ligaments, recovery and injury prevention

EK-5 is a complete support for stabilising the ligaments of the knee. It is ideal for athletes and sportsmen who have suffered injuries or ligament injuries (medium to severe) or who want to preserve the ligamentous apparatus over time. It is characterised by the presence of dynamic progressive resin splints, which allow very fluid flexion/extension movements, stabilising the knee laterally and guiding the patella; the upper bands with Velcro closure provide the correct degree of compression to the thigh muscles, keeping the joint in axis.

Product pluses:

- Exo-Tech exoskeleton with bi-directional hold: LCL (lateral collateral ligament), LCM (medial collateral ligament);

- Exo-Grid lateral reinforcements made of dynamic progressive resin, perfectly stabilise the joint by offering progressively more support depending on the degree of bending;

- Fully open structure that creates a superior fit in the knee with the possibility of easily adjusting the degree of compression by means of the Velcro straps and upper closure bands, preventing slipping even under intensive use;

- The elastic, breathable material with V-Tech technology wicks sweat away and facilitates flexion and extension movements;

- 3D mesh inserted into the knee pad provides extra comfort and breathability at the back of the knee;

TYPE OF INJURY: Medium to severe injuries to the ligamentous apparatus, post-recovery from ruptured ligaments, patellar syndromes. Knee sprains occur when the ligaments supporting the knee are overstretched (stretched), or torn (partially or totally) due to internal or external factors. Injuries to the LCL are usually the result of lateral trauma (frequent in 'contact' sports such as football, basketball, rugby) or valgus stress (falling on skis with spread legs), but if it is the LCL that is damaged, the tibia follows the thrust and does not resist.

SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS: There are 3 degrees of injury with increasing severity: I) There is a slight stretching of the ligament fibres with the presence of pain and swelling in the knee, medial or lateral but without clinical signs of instability. II) The ligament is partially torn, with live pain, swelling and associated lateral or medial knee instability. III) Almost complete ligament tear, with the knee showing severe instability, excessive swelling and often associated meniscal injury.

TREATMENT OF INJURIES: indicatively peripheral injuries (medial and lateral collateral ligaments) are ligamentous injuries that rarely require surgical repair because they undergo complete healing: the product was conceived for this purpose born from the physiotherapy experience of Nippon Sigma Group Ltd. WARNING: Always consult your doctor for an objective examination and to make the correct diagnosis.
