Genu Arexa knee brace
A Safe Return to Everyday Activities
Benefits at a glance
Enhanced safety after the operation
Years of experience show that a knee brace such as the Genu Arexa helps stabilise the injured knee after the operation and protects it against unwanted movements. It helps you quickly regain confidence in your own mobility and muscle strength.
Comfortable to wear
The plastic shells of the knee brace automatically adapt to the contours of your leg the first time it is worn. Soft, washable padding ensures ultimate wearer comfort. The height-adjustable tibia pad protects particularly sensitive areas.
Developed by doctors, the Genu Move exercise programme supports the follow-up treatment of your knee injury and enables you to actively contribute to your rehabilitation at home as well. It is aimed at restoring the load-bearing capacity, mobility, strength and coordination of the affected leg.
Easy to use
Putting on and taking off the brace is incredibly simple. You don’t have to step into the brace. Simply place it on the front of your leg and then fasten the straps in numerical order.
Torn cruciate ligament
The anterior cruciate ligament often tears during abrupt braking movements where the knee is flexed, curved inward slightly and simultaneously rotated outwards (valgus stress). This type of injury is particularly common when skiing and playing football.
The posterior cruciate ligament tears less frequently, mostly due to powerful external forces.
Fields of application
The Genu Arexa knee brace is a device for the conservative follow-up treatment of cruciate ligament injuries such as distensions, partial ruptures or ruptures. It is used in case of injuries to the anterior and the posterior cruciate ligaments as well as the medial and/or lateral collateral ligament. While it is intended primarily for functional follow-up treatment after ligament surgery, it is also used for the conservative therapy of chronic, complex instabilities of the knee joint.

Exercises you can do at home – Genu Move
This brochure has muscle-strengthening exercises to do at home after an anterior cruciate ligament tear.
To promote healing as effectively as possible, train your knee from the outset using the Genu Move exercise programme, if possible also at home. Talk to your doctor first.
You can wear the orthosis without problems even during the rehabilitation exercises.
Even at night, the knee can be moved to joint positions that cause increased strain. It is therefore sensible to wear the brace at night as well.
A brace not only protects the cruciate ligament graft, it also supports the therapy of accompanying injuries (meniscus, collateral ligaments and cartilage). A knee brace such as the Genu Arexa stabilises the injured knee, prevents unwanted movements and simultaneously allows you to control weight-bearing on your knee and gradually transition to movement. With the Genu Arexa, you can gradually expand the range of motion after talking to your doctor so that you can soon return to work and everyday activities.
