8320N Patella Pro

Reference number 8320
Dynamic patellar tracking

Ottobock’s Patella Pro offers a unique, innovative solution for anterior knee pain. Its mode of action is based on a dynamic re-alignment mechanism that ensures the patella is medialised at certain flexion angles. It enables functional tracking of the patella during everyday movements and can be used both conservatively and in the postoperative phase.

Often, pain is caused by problems associated with patellar tracking. The goal is to return the patella to its anatomical track of movement. The risk of maltracking is particularly high at lower flexion angles of 10–30°, when the patella is not tracked firmly in the patellofemoral groove. This is exactly where the Patella Pro comes in and where it guides the patella. The frequently inflamed soft tissue is relieved, and knee pain is alleviated by the functional relief provided to the joint structures. Users especially appreciate the fact that this brace is suitable for everyday use.

All features at a glance:

  • The Patella Pro can be adapted once in six easy steps; quick-release closures and donning loops make it easier to put the brace on and take it off
  • The Patella Pro’s light weight and its breathable fabric material make it very comfortable to wear
  • The vector grip prevents the brace from slipping out of place to a large extent

Dynamic realignment
Dynamic realignment

The dynamic realignment technology ensures that the patella is guided during flexion and extension, without applying increased pressure during more pronounced flexion.

Material with vector-grip effect
Material with vector-grip effect

The breathable material is roughened or smooth in various areas on the interior. This means the brace does not slip, neither sideways nor up and down.

Quick-release closure
Quick-release closure

To put the brace on and take it off, merely guide the closure into the provided holes and click it in. Three width settings are available, and your physician or technician will choose one for you.

Donning loops
Donning loops

Thanks to the handy donning loops, the brace can be pulled over the knee easily.

Patella opening
Patella opening

Thanks to the patella opening, no pressure is exerted on the sensitive patella.

Hook-and-loop and ratchet closures
Hook-and-loop and ratchet closures

The physician or O&P professional adjusts the brace to the user’s individual needs with practical hook-and-loop and ratchet closures.
