Genu Arexa Knee Orthosis

Knee stabilisation after a stroke

Preventing overextension of the knee

A stroke or peripheral nerve damage can lead to paralysis in the leg. Walking is often difficult, and you may perceive the leg and knee as unstable so that you overextend the knee as soon as you put weight on it.

Here the Genu Neurexa provides good support. It stabilises the knee and prevents overextension of the knee joint. Bending the knee continues to be possible. You can start using the Genu Neurexa even during rehabilitation and gait training – after consulting with your doctor or therapist of course.

Closure

The front closure makes it possible to put on the orthosis in various ways.

Splints

The splints are individually adjustable by your doctor or orthopaedic technician, so that knee movement is limited as required.

Hyperextension strap

The crossover straps prevent over-extension (hyperextension) of the knee joint.

Outlast material

The climate control material (Outlast) counteracts heat development. This reduces perspiration and the orthosis can also be worn for longer periods of time.



Benefits at a glance

Support while walking

The Genu Neurexa helps prevent overextension of your knee. However, knee flexion continues to be possible. The range of motion can be individually adjusted by your doctor or orthopaedic technician according to your personal situation.

Early commencement of rehabilitation

The sooner you begin with rehabilitation, the more successful you can be. The Genu Neurexa promotes an early start to rehabilitation, so that you can focus on your gait training and may regain muscle activity more quickly.

Easy to put on

You can put on the orthosis without opening the closures, or open them partly or entirely – the choice is yours and depends on what is most comfortable for you or a person who may help you.

Pleasant and comfortable

The pleasantly soft, temperature-regulating material (Outlast) prevents excessive heat development. In order to take full advantage of the material characteristics, the Genu Neurexa should be worn directly on the skin.

Indications

Paresis of leg muscles resulting in knee hyperextension for example after stroke, lumbar disc herniation, peripheral nerve damage, etc.

FAQ

  • Can I wear the Genu Neurexa all day?

    Yes, because the material is very soft and comfortable. It also regulates the temperature, so that perspiration is reduced and wearing it even for extended periods of time does not cause discomfort. You can even wear the orthosis during gait training, so that it does not have to be taken off and put back on again all the time.

  • Can I put the Genu Neurexa on and take it off on my own?

    Yes, the Genu Neurexa makes this possible in several ways. Depending on what is most comfortable for you, you can either slip into the closed orthosis or open the closures fully or partly. All closures are located on the front, so you can see and reach them easily. Depending on your physical condition, you can use the orthosis on your own – but you should let family members or nursing staff help you if needed.

  • Is the Genu Neurexa washable?

    Yes, you should wash the orthosis regularly. Please observe the corresponding information in the instructions for use.
