Knee Immobilizer short 14″ Tynor

A knee immobilizer is a medical device used to restrict movement of the knee joint and keep it in a fixed position. It is typically used after knee injuries or surgeries to provide support, stability, and protection to the knee while it heals. Knee immobilizers are designed to keep the knee in a straight or slightly bent position, depending on the specific medical needs of the patient.

Here are some key features and purposes of a knee immobilizer:

  1. Stability: The primary purpose of a knee immobilizer is to provide stability to the knee joint. It helps prevent the knee from bending, straightening, or moving side to side, which can be important during the initial stages of recovery after surgery or injury.
  2. Post-Surgery Support: Knee immobilizers are often prescribed following knee surgeries, such as ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction, meniscus repair, or knee replacement surgery. They help protect the surgical site and prevent excessive movement that could disrupt the healing process.
  3. Injury Management: They are also used for non-surgical knee injuries like ligament sprains, strains, or fractures to help immobilize the joint and reduce the risk of further damage.
  4. Pain Management: By restricting movement and stabilizing the knee, immobilizers can help alleviate pain and discomfort associated with knee injuries or surgeries.
  5. Adjustable: Knee immobilizers are typically adjustable to accommodate various leg sizes and provide a snug fit. They often have straps or fasteners that can be tightened or loosened as needed.
  6. Comfort: Many knee immobilizers are designed with padding or cushioning to increase patient comfort during use.Call  9739394081
