Knee

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.

Flexible sole

The flexible sole can be tailored to fit any shoe.

Foot stirrup

The foot stirrup transfers the weight to the lower leg. This relieves the knee joint.

Removable mesh fabric

The mesh fabric netting can easily be removed and washed.

Strap guide loop of the Agilium Freestep

The strap and strap guide loop keep the brace on the leg. The flexibly attached strap guide loop ensures that the strap adjusts to the movement of the leg.

Strap

The strap can be individually tailored to the calf circumference for the best possible fit.

User Experience

Say goodbye to pain

Lifestyle story: Heike

“As soon as I put on the Agilium, the pain in my knee gets better.” Heike, 49

For Heike, living with osteoarthritis meant that she had knee pain even on routine trips to the supermarket. The 49-year old developed osteoarthritis in her left knee four years ago after meniscus surgery, and it was made worse by having bowed legs. She kept putting off an operation, and wearing a brace around her knee seemed too complicated, in spite of her pain. Heike smiles now when she thinks back to the moment her O&P professional put the Agilium Freestep on her leg. The brace only extends from her foot to the outside of her lower leg and is about as light as a sandal. What about the other benefits of the Agilium Freestep? Heike says, “It’s easy to put on. When I wear it, the effect is instantaneous and the pain gets better. And, at the moment, the brace is saving me from having to have an operation.”

Thanks to the Agilium Freestep, Heike is mobile again in spite of osteoarthritis – whether she’s walking with her daughter in the woods or working as a tennis instructor at the edge of the court. The brace fits comfortably inside her shoe. Although she initially wore the Agilium Freestep for up to eight hours a day, she’s now down to an average of three hours, in part because her higher activity level has built up her muscles and made her stronger. “I’m really happy that I got this brace,” she says, “because it simply helps.”

FAQS

Answers for you

How long do I need to wear the brace each day?

You can wear the brace for the whole day – but particularly when doing things that put stress on your joints and during activities that cause pain.

Is the brace suitable for sports?

Generally, yes. Water and contact sports are an exception, however. These types of sports should be avoided to prevent placing your fellow players at risk of injury.

What shoes should I wear with the Agilium Freestep?

We recommend sturdy footwear that extends a maximum of 5 cm above the ankle, ideally with a removable inner sole. Hiking sandals are also suitable. However, shoes with a heel should generally be avoided if you have osteoarthritis.

How will I be able to tell that the brace is helping me?

The brace helps to relieve pain. This can increase your mobility and enable you to walk for longer or cover greater distances.

Why can’t the brace slip?

The brace is worn in your shoe, which guarantees a secure hold. The brace is also fixed to the leg with a skin-friendly strap.

The Agilium Patella can help to relieve pain in case of retropatellar osteoarthritis, the term used to describe wear and tear to the back surface of the kneecap. The Agilium Patella precisely centres the kneecap thanks to its combination of a fabric body, stabilising elements and dynamic re-alignment mechanism (a spring mechanism which ensures correct tracking of the patella). As a result, the joint cartilage is no longer subjected to excessive strain. Pressure behind the kneecap is demonstrably reduced.

The orthosis can be adapted to various movements, making it comfortable to wear.
