AKS™ Knee Support with Plastic Hinges
The AKS Knee Support has a unique adjustable closure design with distal and proximal openings that allows for easy application and ability to fit various patient shapes. In addition, compression can be adjusted to the desired level. Soft patellar buttress is adjustable and works in concert with closed popliteal sleeve to provide circumferential compression around the knee and focal compression around the patella. Plastic hinges enhance the brace’s ability to conform to the knee during flexion. Internal SkinLoc™ pad and plastic hinges function synergistically to resist distal migration and vertical bunching. Neoprene version provides greater compression and warmth, while the CoolFlex version is breathable and lightweight for superior comfort. To size correctly, measure the circumference of the knee at mid patella.
