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.
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
- Rehabilitation After Total Knee Replacement
