medi Soft OA light: lightweight soft orthosis with integrated 3-point pressure relief principle
With the aid of a strap system, medi Soft OA light provides an individually adjustable varus and valgus relief. It is equipped with a patented strap tightening system that allows an adaptive relief of the knee joint. In doing so, the soft orthosis relieves the knee specifically when it is under stress. The combined slip-in wrap construction enables a problem-free handling and adaptation to the user's personal needs.
The 3-point pressure relief principle is based on the patented strap system of the medi Soft OA light. This is a special construction for relief of the lateral or medial compartment, especially during moments of maximum stress, when the leg is fully straightened. The soft brace is suitable for all indications that need unicompartmental relief based on the 3-point pressure relief principle and an additional physiological guidance of the knee joint, for example:
- unilateral osteoarthritis
- meniscus intervention
medi Soft OA light supports guidance of knee movements: it acts against the leg swinging out sideways into painful malalignment. The painful side of the knee joint (medial or lateral) can be relieved by the 3-point pressure relief principle. This is, for example, necessary in the case of bow legs or knock knees. Relief of the knee joint ensures pain reduction and can increase the patient's mobility.
medi Soft OA light is characterised by its simple handling. The combination of a slip-in construction for the calf and a wrap mechanism for the thigh allows the user to apply it easily, quickly position it correctly and secure it on the leg. With the wrap construction, the user can adjust it individually to the thigh. medi Soft OA light convinces with its sophisticated design, which guides the straps away from the sensitive hollow of the knee: uncomfortable pressure is thus purposefully avoided. This makes the soft knee brace suitable for everyday use and especially comfortable for the user. The slender design and a comprehensive wedge set for optional individual limitation of straightening and bending (extension and flexion limits) round off medi Soft OA light. medi Soft OA is a good choice for people looking for additional support: thanks to the two additional straps, it provides more stability and guidance.
- Relief of the lateral or medial compartment using the 3-point principle
- Pain relief by reducing weight-bearing on the affected side of the joint
- compression stabilizes the joint and improves proprioception
medi Soft OA light is a knee brace for load relief.
All indications that require load relief of a compartment via the 3-point pressure relief principle and additional physiological support of the knee joint, such as:
- For treating unilateral osteoarthritis of the knee
- Following surgical intervention on the meniscus
Combined lateral and medial osteoarthitis
