Non-slip coatings

Ted Trower

I have a very large gentleman who has been wearing a Generation II
adj KO for OA in his left knee. He has been experiencing
difficulties keeping the orthosis in place regardless of using an
undersleeve etc. He is applying the orthosis correctly.

I would like to try to increase the coefficient of friction between
the leg. Has anyone had success applying a high friction coating of
some type and what did you use? What about some sort of gel sheet to
re-line the interior of the orthosis?
