Genu Direxa Stable and Genu Direxa Stable open knee orthoses
Slight to moderate feeling of instability in the knee
Benefits at a glance
The open version can be opened fully and comfortably wrapped around the leg. It offers a more individual fit in comparison with the closed version.
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 soft TriTech material ensures excellent wearer comfort. Thanks to its special textile structure, the orthosis does not slip when worn.
Easy to set up
Your orthopaedic technician can adjust the orthosis for you in just a few steps in order to limit extension and flexion incrementally.
Suitable for sports
The orthoses feature two circumferential straps and covered joint bars with a slim design, making them suitable for contact sports as well.

You can get the knee orthoses 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.
