50K4 Leg & knee orthotics

Knee

Pain relief and a high level of wearer comfort

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.

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.”

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.
