Knee orthosis in Munich

The most important and most used joint in the body for our mobility is the knee joint. As long as it functions without problems, this fact seems self-evident to us. It is only in the case of injury or illness that we become painfully aware of the important role of the knee. In such cases, a suitable knee orthosis is often the right choice for improvement. Depending on your needs, a knee orthosis can relieve, stabilize or activate muscles.

Therefore, ergonomic care knee orthoses provide mobility restoration and protection against re-injury, whether for cartilage damage, ligament injuries or gonarthrosis.

Custom made knee orthosis

When prefabricated knee orthoses no longer provide adequate care, custom-made knee orthoses are used. Reasons for this can be enormous malpositions or special fit requirements. Corrective orthoses in the field of pediatrics, i.e. children's/adolescent medicine, are also usually custom-made. To protect pre-stressed joints due to sports such as skiing, a custom-made orthosis can be the perfect protection against injuries.

The development and manufacture of orthoses is one of the main focuses of orthopedic technology at ergonomic care Munich. We specialize in the growth-oriented fitting of children and adolescents, as well as the manufacture of individual aids for adults that are suitable for everyday use. By processing state-of-the-art materials, such as carbon fiber in cast resin technology, we are able to achieve optimal stability and wearing comfort even with reduced weight of the orthosis. In addition, we manufacture the orthosis according to your color and design wishes.

At ergonomic care you will find medical compression stockings in many different colors, shapes and compression classes.

Frequently asked questions

At ergonomic care, we now have over 20 years of experience in the healthcare industry. We combine this experience in proven manufacturing processes with a modern workshop and sophisticated techniques. In addition, we are your one-stop shop for advice, analysis, recommendations, adjustments and care.

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

A knee orthosis is mainly used for knee disorders, e.g. gonarthrosis, injuries to ligaments or muscles, or after operations. Depending on the need, the knee orthosis then relieves, stabilizes or immobilizes the knee joint.

Gonarthrosis is defined as cartilage wear in the knee joint. The reason for this is often a malposition of the leg axis. The "medi Soft OA" or "medi Soft OA light" orthoses are suitable for example. Both work according to the 3-point relief principle and thus have a corrective effect on the malposition of the leg axis.

Yes, as long as the knee brace does not restrict or even prevent any movements essential for driving. Ultimately, you must decide for yourself whether you can still drive with the knee orthosis without endangering yourself or others.

Normally, a knee orthosis should be worn for about four to six weeks after surgery for cruciate ligament tears or meniscus injuries. However, your attending physician will recommend exact wearing times.

Every contract physician may prescribe medical aids at the expense of the statutory health insurance, regardless of whether he is a general practitioner or a specialist.

In most cases, the costs for an orthosis are covered by the health insurance; you only have to contribute the statutory co-payment. The cost coverage by the health insurance usually refers to the standard supply. Therefore, they should go to a medical supply store with the prescription issued by the doctor and get detailed advice on the supply.

These numbers indicate the movement restriction to be achieved by the knee orthosis. The first number indicates the degree of maximum knee extension, in this case 0°. The second number indicates the rest position, in this case a knee flexion of 10°. The last number is the maximum flexion, so here a knee flexion of 90°. The orthosis is adjusted by the orthopedic technician according to the prescription.

Wearing the orthosis over pants is usually not recommended. It can lead to slipping of the orthosis or constriction in the hollow of the knee. To ensure that the orthosis sits properly on the skin, the appropriate size must be selected.
