Make sure the patella (knee cap is centrally located in the brace. (See figure 1)

Push the buttress inward (medial) with one hand while pulling the flap straps with the other.
Adhere the ends of the flap to the medial side of the brace.  (See figure 3)
Presenting the most advanced orthopedic bracing technology available for the treatment of patellofemoral tracking problems.  The Shields Brace effectively treats malalignments of patella glide, patella tilt, and AP tilt by utilizing dynamic force to properly align the patella.

The patella buttressing mechanism is separated from the support wrap through the use of an independent Directional Force Flap.  This ensures that the buttress moves freely and remains in contact with the patella during activity, and moves with the patella through rehabilitation.

Dynamic force against the patella is generated when the Spectron Buttress is applied in the desired position to the Directional Force Flap, then pulled tight.  The unique U-shaped Buttress unites the properties of the Spectron non-slip surface with the soft tubular rubber core to create aflexible, adjustable buttress.  The buttress can be custom applied to treat a wide range of patella ailments.

The Shields Brace is constucted of Kuhl perforated neoprene which allows moisture to escape and leaves the skin dry and comfortable.

Useful in treating the following:

  • Common Malalignments of Patella Glide, Patella Tilt, and AP Tilt
  • Lateral or medial subluxation
  • Patella Dislocation
  • Chondromalacia
  • Rehabilitation After Total Knee Replacement
