Breg PTO AirMesh Patella Stabilizing Knee Brace
The Breg PTO Knee Brace effectively reduces and treats pain and instability from patellar maltracking. The PTO is one of the world's most relied-upon brace for the treatment of kneecap (patella) problems.
- Hinge adjusts tension generated by the hinge bars to pull the buttress down around the patella to enhance patella stabilization.
- Works "dynamically" as the patient performs normal knee movement while walking and/or running.
- Progressive compression of the lateral soft tissue (peak force reached at full extension) surrounding the knee cap is applied enhancing the positive effects of the patella buttress.
- Airmesh material for breathable comfort.
Details: The unique patella buttress attaches to the side hinge bars to provide greater force on the patella and normalize tracking during walking and running activities. The PTO (Patella Tracking Orthosis) hinge dynamically adjusts the amount of compression applied through the lateral pressure plate on the patella buttress according to the amount of bend in the knee.
As the knee moves into extension, the plate and buttress work together to form a lateral "soft tissue wall" to control patella subluxation.
The Breg PTO provides effective stabilization for patella maltracking, subluxations/dislocations, and patella instability. The hinged design, dynamic patella donut capabilitiy, and lightweight materials make it a favorite.
The soft Airmesh material is both breathable and latex-free. The PTO "standard" model features lightweight aluminum for durability that's suitable for everyday use, rehabilitation of common patella overuse injuries, and non-contact sports.
