Ortho Innovation Mackie Knee Brace
The Mackie Hinge Knee Brace was developed on the basis of our success with the Mackie Hinge Elbow Brace. The Mackie Hinge Knee Brace uses a unique infinitely adjustable hinge mounted on a rigid, non-contact frame. This design offers simplicity of function, strong construction, and superior patient comfort. Because human physiology varies greatly from individual to individual, the hinge adjustability allows the patient to control how much force is applied to achieve the best result. For this patient-directed approach to be successful, patient tolerance and compliance is crucial. Static-Progressive Stretch is a proven concept for effective and permanent gain in range of motion.
The Mackie Hinge Knee Brace also has the ability to be used in both flexion and extension. This can avoid the added expense of a second brace because many patients require stretch in both directions. Physician prescribed Wearing Protocols allow the patient to incrementally stretch the joint to tolerance. The Mackie Hinge Knee Brace can be used with a variety of Wearing Protocols. Always follow your physicians instructions if they are different from our suggestions. Patient Application Instructions are easy to understand.
Ortho Innovations distributes these products through qualified professionals. They are only to be used following the prescription of a Medical Doctor. The prescribing physician’s instructions take precedence over any instructions given here or in printed material.
Static-Progressive Stretch Static progressive stretch (SPS) orthoses (braces) are used to restore lost range of motion to contracted joints through the biomechanical principle of stress relaxation. Soft tissues respond as a viscoelastic material. Soft tissues include tendons, ligaments, muscles, joint capsules, skin and fascia. As a viscoelastic material is stretched and then held at a constant length, the stress or tendency to rebound gradually declines. This decline in force is called stress relaxation. SPS stretches soft tissues using a series of incremental changes in the joint position held constant over prescribed periods of time. Connective tissue responds favorably to this low-load prolonged stretch. This desired response allows the tissue to slowly adapt to the elongated length, resulting in permanent plastic deformation in the most time efficient manner.
