SofTec® OA Knee Brace


Multifunctional orthosis for relief of the medial knee compartment

For an indication of knee arthrosis (medial osteoarthritis of the knee) or following injury of the inner meniscus, the SofTec® OA multifunctional orthosis stabilizes and relieves pressure on the affected area, while simultaneously permitting muscle play. The orthosis consists of a flexible knit and strap system with an integral functional element comprising anatomically contoured shells, pressure cushions (pads) and an air bladder system that can be filled or emptied as required.

  • Pressure relief in accordance with the 3-point principle helps to alleviate pain
  • Zippers for ease of putting on and taking off
  • multi-adjustments possible


SofTec OA can be adjusted in many ways and offers targeted pressure relief for the knee joint. The flexible SofTec vector knit contains an integral functional element with pressure cushions, carbon fiber shells  and an air bladder system. This functional element can be removed prior to washing or making any modifications. External fine adjustment of the orthosis is possible by means of four non-elastic straps and the air bladder system. The knee cannot twist and the kneecap is held securely in its centered position.


Two integral pads above and below the kneecap counteract swelling and hematoma during every movement. At the beginning, the anatomically contoured shells can be heated and adapted to the patient's individual leg shape. The pressure can be changed at any time depending on the activity or rest period: this is done by filling or emptying the air bladder system to increase or reduce compression. The SofTec OA thus helps to relieve pain.


SofTec® Genu is a multifunctional orthosis for stabilization of the knee. It is used, for example,in cases of torn ligaments, collateral ligament injury or arthritis. Its construction combines: stability and control provided by fixed joint splints, healing massage provided by a pad on the kneecap and maximum wearing comfort thanks to the anatomically shaped, breathable SofTec® vector-oriented knitted fabric.

Indications For Use:

  • Isolated rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament up to and including the "unhappy triad": Conservative treatment, Pre-operative and postoperative management, Long-term rehabilitation – sports therapy, Chronic insufficiency
  • Conservative functional treatment of collateral ligament injuries
  • Treatment of "unstable knee joint": Severe osteoarthritis of the knee, Rheumatoid arthritis – progressive rheumatoid arthritis, Endoprosthesis – secondary rehabilitation, Post-traumatic
  • Restricting the knee’s range of movement (e.g. after meniscal suturing or meniscal implantation)

    How to Measure

    Flex knees (30 degrees) and mark the centre of the patella. Measure the circumference of the leg at this point (KNEE), 17 cm above this point (A), and 15 cm below this point (B).
