Breg Introduces Post-operative Knee Brace
Feb 08, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Breg, Inc., a provider of sports medicine products and services, announced the introduction of a next generation post-operative knee brace, the T Scope Premier, for patients recovering from knee surgery and injuries.
In a release, the Company noted it also launched the Carlsbad Cervical Collar for cervical spine immobilization; the Ultra CTS Ankle Brace that converts from acute ankle support to rehabilitation; and the Achilles Wedges for foot rehabilitation.
"About 1.4 million knee procedures are performed in the U.S. every year and rising1 as demographics shift to an increasingly older and active population," said Brad Lee, president of Breg. "We developed the T Scope Premier with input from orthopedic surgeons and patients to enhance ease of use, comfort and fit. We expect this brace to have a significant impact on the growing post-op recovery market."
The T Scope Premier builds on the telescoping design of the original T Scope which medical professionals have trusted for years. The new brace features a refined range-of-motion hinge, a simplified user interface, redesigned pads and cuffs and an optional BridgeTech Incision Pad for adjustable comfort around the incision site. The result is a high performance, comfortable knee brace designed to provide protected, controlled range-of-motion for patients recovering from knee surgery or for those who have knee injuries or instabilities.
Other new products:
-Ultra CTS Ankle Brace is a custom treatment system that transforms from acute ankle brace to low profile activity brace as the patient progresses through rehabilitation. The brace's PerformaFit upright stays attached for acute injury and can be detached for return to activity. The Ultra CTS ankle brace features Performathane technology which custom forms to the injured ankle, constantly reforming with edema reduction.
-Carlsbad Cervical Collar provides cervical spine immobilization with full adjustability and comfort. The semi-rigid frame restricts flexion, extension and lateral rotation. With dual height adjustments, six size settings and half-size increments, patients get a personalized fit, and health care professionals will always have the right size on hand. The product is radiolucent for use under X-ray, CT and MRI.
-Achilles Wedges place the foot in planter flexion to offload the Achilles tendon during rehabilitation. The wedges provide comfortable, customized height adjustments with four interlocking wedges that maintain an angle of plantar flexion at 5 degrees, 10 degrees, 15 degrees or 20 degrees. Achilles Wedges are available for all walker boots except range-of-motion walkers and Breg's Vectra Lite Walker Boot (unless a heel clip is used).
