The Breg Fusion Lateral OA Custom Knee Brace provides the ultimate in performance and comfort. It's custom-made from a cast mold thus ensuring a fit that's tailor made according to the shape of each patient's leg. The brace is made from aircraft aluminum along with a lateral hinge bar composed of semi-rigid, yet flexible, Zytel plastic, The semi-flexible nature of the lateral hinge bar gives the Breg Fusion Lateral OA the ability to conform to the shape of your leg and resists rotational movements at the joint which can cause braces to migrate down your leg. The hinge box on the inside, medial aspect of the brace, features a simplified thumbwheel dial that enables the user to precise adjust the amount of unloading occurring inside the knee. By simply turning the thumbwheel, the hinge telescopes the condyle pad inward thus creating a varus unloading effect to effectively gap open the knee's lateral compartment. The hinge box contains an offset guage on top which shows the amount of distance the condyle pad is telescoping inward as measured in millimeters. The low profile hinge box is designed not to brush up against or interfere with the opposite leg thus creating a comfortable user experience. The Breg Custom Fusion Lateral OA Knee Brace features full padding through the thigh and lower leg portion of the frame for enhanced comfort. Pivoting strap tabs on the sides help maintain the brace in the correct position at all times during light or heavy walking activities. The product is ideally suited for treating mild to moderate lateral compartment osteoarthritis, chondral defects, meniscus repairs, and more.
