Genu Direxa and Genu Direxa open knee orthoses
Slight to moderate feeling of instability in the knee
Benefits at a glance
The open version of the orthosis can be opened fully and wrapped around the leg. It offers a more individual fit in comparison with the closed version. You can choose the orthosis that’s right for you in consultation with your doctor.
You can step into the closed version from above, like trousers. Two lateral finger loops make it easier for you to put on the orthosis. The closed version offers a greater compression effect than the open version. You can choose the version that’s right for you in consultation with your doctor.
The soft TriTech material ensures excellent wearer comfort. Thanks to its special textile structure, the orthosis does not slip when worn.
Suitable for sports
The orthoses feature two circumferential elastic straps and covered joint bars with a slim design. This makes them suitable for contact sports as well – in consultation with your doctor, of course.

You can get the Genu Direxa and Genu Direxa open from a medical supply store with a prescription. If you have knee pain, we recommend consulting a doctor. With the right diagnosis, an appropriate product can be prescribed for you.
After removing the joint bars, you can simply machine wash the orthosis at 30°C. Please make sure all hook-and-loop closures are fastened before washing. We recommend using a laundry net to extend the life of the product.
