Knee Orthosis

Over the last decade, there have been many improvements in custom knee braces. Braces used to be bulky, ineffective, and ugly contraptions that would continuously slide down, and they came used to come in only one colour. Thankfully that is no longer the case.

While braces may not win fashion-forward awards for the design, they have improved in many ways. Now they are made up of lighter materials and are stronger and more durable. They are also more effective in offloading and protecting your knee. They are significantly slimmer and may be worn under trousers and come in various colours.

At Xtremity, we provide knee braces for postoperative recovery, ligament strains or ruptures, knee instability and osteoarthritis. You can also find specially designed ACL/PCL knee braces. We have a team of the best orthotists in Dubai, who are highly skilled and trained in dispensing custom/off the shelve braces.

Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis

A Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis or KAFO is a lower extremity orthosis that is used to control instabilities in the knee and lower limb by maintaining proper alignment and controlling motion. Instabilities can be caused by broken bones, arthritic joints, hyperextension of the knee, muscle weakness and/or paralysis. As there are many different reasons that a person may need to utilize a KAFO, there are many different designs foraKAFO based on necessity. Additionally, a KAFO is considered a part of pelvic stabilization known as HKAFO (hip knee-ankle-foot orthosis), which has further design types like RGO (reciprocal gait orthosis).

Historically, the best option for a patient with weak muscles that control the knee was to wear a KAFO with a locked knee joint. This provided stability to the knee to prevent involuntary bending of the knee but caused other associated problems such as muscle atrophy and increased energy expenditure while walking.

Over the past few years, a newer design of knee joint has been developed that can automatically lock and unlock at the appropriate phases of the gait cycle to allow a more fluidic walking style. This is called a Stance Control joint.

Xtremity is one of the best providers of Blounts Knee ankle-foot orthosis(KAFO) in Dubai. Ask our orthotic team whether you’re best suited for Stance control KAFO.

Knee Orthosis

Our team of Certified Orthotists are highly skilled and trained in dispensing custom/off the shelve braces. They are well versed in handling the injury and recovery process and sorting through the wide variety of custom knee brace options.

There are different categories of knee braces that are designed for utmost comfort, support, stability and safety.

The different categories of the knee braces are:
Patellofemoral knee brace

The Patellofemoral knee brace keeps the knee cap in its proper place and holds the patella. The knee cap is held firmly with a strap and allows the knee to move safely.

 Functional braces

The functional braces are specifically used to treat sports injuries, after surgery, in the case of MCL (medial collateral ligament), LCL (lateral collateral ligament), ACL, and PCL (anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments). Xtremity is renowned to design the best ACL brace in Dubai.

Unloader braces

Unloader braces are used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, knee joint pain, and stability. The hinges on the unloader brace serve to reduce friction and support joints.

When our certified orthotist diagnoses and recommends a knee brace, they consider a few conditions, some of which are as follows:

  1. The selection of the brace- It will depend on the kind of knee injury, such as to treat ligament strains, osteoarthritis, meniscal damage, and general knee pain.
  2. The patient- It is important to choose the right type of knee braces. A brace used by runners for ligament strain is very different from a ligament strain brace used by a basketball player. 
  3. The treatment time period- Depending on the injury and severity of pain, the duration and extent of wearing the braces vary for every patient.
