Knee orthosis in Munich

The knee joint is the most important and most stressed joint of the body for our mobility. As long as it functions without problems, this fact seems natural to us. Only when injuries or diseases occur do we painfully realize the important role of the knee. A suitable knee orthosis is often the right choice for improvement in such cases. Depending on the need, a knee orthosis can relieve, stabilize, or activate muscles.

Therefore, the knee orthoses from ergonomic care help restore mobility and protect against further injuries, whether in cases of cartilage damage, ligament injuries, or gonarthrosis.

Custom-made knee orthosis

If prefabricated knee orthoses no longer provide adequate care, custom-made knee orthoses are used. Reasons for this may include severe misalignments or special fit needs. Also, corrective orthoses in the field of pediatrics, i.e., child/adolescent medicine, are mostly made to order. To protect pre-stressed joints from sports such as skiing, a custom-made orthosis can be the perfect protection against injuries.

The development and production of orthoses is one of the focal points of orthopedic technology at ergonomic care Munich. We specialize in growth-appropriate care for children and adolescents, as well as the production of individual and practical aids for adults. By using state-of-the-art materials, such as carbon fiber in casting resin technology, we can achieve optimal stability and wearing comfort even with reduced weight of the orthosis. Additionally, we manufacture the orthosis according to your color and design preferences.

Frequently asked questions

  • Why are ergonomic care orthoses the right choice?

    At ergonomic care, we now look back on over 20 years of experience in the health industry. This experience in proven manufacturing processes meets a modern workshop and sophisticated techniques at our site. Moreover, you receive everything from consultation, analysis, recommendations, adjustments to care all from one source.

    For this reason, we can guarantee you the highest wearing comfort and functionality with our orthoses.

  • What does a knee orthosis do?

    A knee orthosis is primarily used for knee diseases, such as gonarthrosis, injuries to ligaments or muscles, or after surgeries. Depending on the need, the knee orthosis then relieves, stabilizes, or immobilizes the knee joint.

  • Which orthosis do you recommend for cartilage damage in the knee?

    Gonarthrosis is understood to be a cartilage wear in the knee joint, often due to misalignment of the leg axis. Suitable care options include orthoses like “medi Soft OA” or “medi Soft OA light,” which work according to the 3-point relief principle and thus have a corrective effect on the misalignment of the leg axis.

  • Can one drive with a knee orthosis?

    Yes, as long as the knee orthosis does not restrict or even prevent essential movements for driving. In the end, you must decide whether you can still drive with the knee orthosis without putting yourself or others at risk.

  • How long should one wear a knee orthosis?

    Normally, a knee orthosis should be worn for about four to six weeks after surgery for cruciate ligament tears or meniscus injuries. However, your treating doctor will recommend the exact duration of wear.

  • Can my general practitioner prescribe a knee orthosis?

    Any contract doctor can prescribe aids at the expense of the statutory health insurance, whether general practitioner or specialist.

  • Is a knee orthosis paid for by health insurance?

    In most cases, the costs for an orthosis are covered by health insurance, with only the statutory co-payment required from you. The coverage by health insurance usually pertains to standard care. Therefore, you should go to a medical supply store with the prescription issued by the doctor and get detailed advice about the care.

  • What does "0-10-90" on the prescription mean?

    These numbers indicate the movement restriction that the knee orthosis is supposed to achieve. The first number indicates the degree of maximum knee extension, here 0°. The second number indicates the resting position, here a knee flexion of 10°. The last number is the maximum flexion, here a knee flexion of 90°. The orthosis is adjusted by the orthopedic technician according to the prescription just for you.

  • Can I wear my knee orthosis over pants?

    Wearing the orthosis over pants is generally not recommended. It can lead to the orthosis slipping or to constrictions in the knee pit. To ensure the orthosis fits correctly on the skin, the appropriate size must be chosen.
