How to fit Comfy Locking-Knee Orthosis?

  • Open Velcro straps. Notice one of the straps is a little longer than the others. The longer strap should be placed at the upper end of the knee (over the thigh).
  • After passive range of motion of the Knee, to allow for maximum Knee extension, place Orthosis along the inside flexor surface of the Knee with Ring at the Bottom of the Knee.
  • The Comfy Locking-KneeOrthosissplint can be adjusted to limit the range of flexion or extension of the Knee as desired. Pull ring out, bend splint to desired degree of variance and let tab pull into position. Splint will then lock.
  • The two splint cuffs can be adjusted to the diameter of the patient's thigh and calf. Merely press the Orthosis against a firm edge (e.g. table, countertop or chair edge) while firmly holding and leaning on both ends. Do not remove insert from fabric cover, as all positioning can be done while insert is in the cover. The Comfy Locking-KneeOrthosisis easily adjusted and re-adjusted to any desired angle and maintains its shape. Several adjustments can be performed rapidly to obtain the desired optimal angulation.
  • Once the desired angulation for the Knee is achieved, re-close the zipper, wrap the straps around the thigh and calf and secure with Velcro. Note the middle, split strap has an opening for the Knee. It is suggested that the therapist maintain two finger spaces under the straps to prevent excessive pressure areas on the patient’s skin.
