Knee orthoses

For reliable support and natural mobility

Médicus offers different choices of orthoses and splints developed specifically for the knee. They provide comfortable and secure support, while allowing a wide range of motion. Our accredited orthotist-prosthetists will help you choose the best product for your condition.

Osteoarthritis or unloading knee orthoses 

This type of orthosis is designed to relieve pressure on the arthritic knee compartment.

By improving the biomechanics of the joint affected by osteoarthritis, the orthosis realigns knee pressure and thus provides pain relief of the affected compartment. Knee function is normalized and the need for knee replacement surgery can be delayed.

Offered exclusively at Médicus, the EVOKETM orthosis is the first knee orthosis for osteoarthritis to reproduce the natural movement of the knee. It is 50% lighter than all other orthoses designed for osteoarthritis.

Ligament or stability knee orthoses

These orthoses and braces are used to stabilize the knee after ligament instabilities, trauma or surgeries. They provide stability and increase function during activity or rehabilitation.

A ligament knee orthotic is recommended in the following cases:

  • Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
  • Meniscal tears
  • Rupture/sprain of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)
  • Rupture/sprain of the medial collateral ligament (MCL)
  • Rupture/sprain of the lateral collateral ligament (LCL)
  • Jogger’s knee

Knee immobilizers

Knee immobilizers are designed to help patients recovering from knee surgery, or those suffering from a knee injury or instability. They immobilize the knee by restricting the articular range of the knee. This limitation is adjustable as the rehabilitation progresses.

A knee immobilizer is recommended in the following cases:

  • Postoperative and acute knee injuries
  • Immobilization or restriction of knee movement
