Patient-specific osteoarthritis therapy with medi
The new medi osteoarthritis range
Braces can be an effective alternative to joint replacement operations and painkillers.
medi is now expanding its range with three knee braces for treating osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. With the new medi Soft OA light, medi Soft OA and M.4s OA comfort, medi offers solutions for different types of patients and stages of osteoarthritis – for patient specific osteoarthritis therapy.
medi Soft OA light and medi Soft OA: effective relief of the knee joint
In the case of knee osteoarthritis, wear causes cartilage damage in the knee joint. This is often caused by the misalignment of the leg axis. This is where the new medi Soft OA light and medi Soft OA orthoses come in, because both work according to the 3-point relief principle. Thanks to the patented, dynamic belt-tensioning, the knee receives maximal relief only when the load is highest – in a stretched-out position during walking or while standing.
Putting on the braces is very easy thanks to the split wrap construction on the thigh and the slip-on design. This is particularly beneficial for older patients. Thanks to the intelligent design, both braces are easy to use. The compressive medi Airtex+ material used on the medi Soft OA light and medi Soft OA stabilises, improves proprioception and increases wearing comfort: It is breathable and wicks away moisture very well.
The braces are adjusted to the individual’s leg shape at specialist medical shops or by the doctor.

compression stabilizes the joint and improves proprioception
Putting on the brace before use:
Open the straps on the front and the hook and loop fastener on the brace.
Putting the brace on:
Bend your leg at approx. 70° and pull the brace onto the injured leg.
Pull the brace up your leg until the fabric comes to below the kneecap and ensure that the kneecap is positioned in the centre of the opening. The centre of the brace joint between the two lateral joint splints is now sitting around the same level as the upper edge of the kneecap. Please make sure that the brace has been placed on the leg straight and is not twisted.
Now close the hook and loop fastener on the upper part of the brace.
Once again, ensure that the brace is sitting correctly.
First, pull the lower strap through the slot on the joint and set it to the setting that was defined by the technician. Fasten the hook and loop. Then set the upper strap and fasten it.
The straps at the back have already been set by the technician.
Take a few steps and ensure that the brace is sitting correctly on the leg. If necessary, correct the position of the brace again.
Taking the brace off:
Open both of the straps and stick the end of the straps back onto their respective straps, to prevent them from snagging clothing.
Open the hook and loop fastener on the brace and pull it off your leg, moving downwards. Close the hook and loop fastener to prevent damage from occurring.
