Happy New year everyone!
I wonder if anyone has tried the Flexgard knee brace by Deroyal and what
they thought of it. I am looking for a brace for a patient who has about 20
degrees of hyperextension of the knee. He does not want to wear a KAFO, or
an AFO. With the knee brace he has now he is getting pressure from the calf
strap (he is wearing the Legend). I am looking for a brace that would give
him more surface area posteriorly to relieve the pressure from the knee
hyperextending against the bands or straps. If anyone has any ideas or any
comments about the Flexgard please let me know and I will do my best to take
time to post them on the listserve.
