Agilium Freestep 2.0

Treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee begins with the foot

We developed the Agilium Freestep 2.0 for the treatment of unicompartmental arthrosis of the knee. It is not applied to the knee, but to the foot and lower leg. The Agilium Freestep 2.0 alters the load line of the knee, thus providing targeted relief for the damaged cartilage in the knee joint. The load line describes the point where the body weight primarily impacts the cartilage.

Functionality

For therapy of knee arthrosis

Biomechanical mode of action of the Agilium Freestep for osteoarthritis of the knee in the medial compartment

Movements in the upper and lower ankle joint are spanned by a rigid component of the brace in the frontal plane. The eversion movement of the foot is thereby limited. This results in a shifting of the centre of pressure (CoP) and the point of application of the ground reaction force (GRF) towards the lateral edge of the foot. This lateralising effect on the course of the force vector of the GRF results in a shortening of the lever arm to the centre of the knee, which decreases the external frontal varus torque acting on the knee. The lateral counter-support of the brace leads to the secondary effect of decreasing the load on the medial knee compartment. This also results in a shortening of the lever arm, decreasing the varus angle of the knee joint in the frontal plane.

The Agilium Freestep relieves the affected joint area and can help alleviate pain in case of knee osteoarthritis (genu valgum and genu varum).The Agilium Freestep is special because it is designed as an ankle-foot orthosis. This means the knee is not restricted. But above all, the forces generated when stepping down can be utilised thanks to this design.
