Comfy Splints Locking Knee

Authorized Retailer

Comfy Splints Locking Knee is excellent for the flaccid or weak extremity or to support or immobilize a painful extremity. The splint's spine can be bent to the appropriate range of motion, and the cuffs can be adjusted for the perfect fit. In order to allow for a gradual expansion of the non-fixed knee contracture, the splint can also be modified and re-adjusted. By removing the ring and locking it into one of the six preferred locations, you can adjust the locking mechanism.

How to use Comfy Locking Pull Ring Knee Orthosis?

  • Open Velcro straps. Notice one of the straps is a little longer than the others. The longer strap should be placed at the upper end of the knee (over the thigh).
  • After passive range of motion of the Knee, to allow for maximum Knee extension, place Orthosis along the inside flexor surface of the Knee with Ring at the Bottom of the Knee.
  • The Comfy Locking-KneeOrthosissplint can be adjusted to limit the range of flexion or extension of the Knee as desired. Pull ring out, bend splint to desired degree of variance and let tab pull into position. Splint will then lock.
  • The two splint cuffs can be adjusted to the diameter of the patient's thigh and calf. Merely press the Orthosis against a firm edge (e.g. table, countertop or chair edge) while firmly holding and leaning on both ends. Do not remove the insert from fabric cover, as all positioning can be done while insert is in the cover. The Comfy Locking-KneeOrthosisis easily adjusted and re-adjusted to any desired angle and maintains its shape. Several adjustments can be performed rapidly to obtain the desired optimal angulation.
  • Once the desired angulation for the Knee is achieved, re-close the zipper, wrap the straps around the thigh and calf and secure with Velcro. Note the middle, split strap has an opening for the Knee. It is suggested that the therapist maintain two finger spaces under the straps to prevent excessive pressure areas on the patient’s skin.

Maintenance of Orthosis:

  • The Cover of the Comfy Locking-KneeOrthosis is designed to be removed for laundering.
  • The fabric cover can be washed by hand or by machine in lukewarm water.
  • Do not use bleach or hot water.
  • Air or tumble dry on cool or warm setting.
  • Wiping both sides with a solution of warm water and detergent or with disinfectant can clean the bend-able white insert.
  • If any of the metal frames becomes exposed, cease using the device.
