Genu Neurexa knee orthosis

Knee stabilisation after a stroke

Benefits at a glance

Support while walking

The Genu Neurexa helps prevent overextension of your knee. However, knee flexion continues to be possible. The range of motion can be individually adjusted by your doctor or orthopaedic technician according to your personal situation.

Early commencement of rehabilitation

The sooner you begin with rehabilitation, the more successful you can be. The Genu Neurexa promotes an early start to rehabilitation, so that you can focus on your gait training and may regain muscle activity more quickly.

Easy to put on

You can put on the orthosis without opening the closures, or open them partly or entirely – the choice is yours and depends on what is most comfortable for you or a person who may help you.

Pleasant and comfortable

The pleasantly soft, temperature-regulating material (Outlast) prevents excessive heat development. In order to take full advantage of the material characteristics, the Genu Neurexa should be worn directly on the skin.


Paresis of leg muscles resulting in knee hyperextension for example after stroke, lumbar disc herniation, peripheral nerve damage, etc.

  • Where can I get the Genu Neurexa?

    Your attending doctor can prescribe the Genu Neurexa in coordination with your therapist or orthopaedic technician.

  • Can I wear the Genu Neurexa all day?

    Yes, because the material is very soft and comfortable. It also regulates the temperature, so that perspiration is reduced and wearing it even for extended periods of time does not cause discomfort. You can even wear the orthosis during gait training, so that it does not have to be taken off and put back on again all the time.

  • Can I put the Genu Neurexa on and take it off on my own?

    Yes, the Genu Neurexa makes this possible in several ways. Depending on what is most comfortable for you, you can either slip into the closed orthosis or open the closures fully or partly. All closures are located on the front, so you can see and reach them easily. Depending on your physical condition, you can use the orthosis on your own – but you should let family members or nursing staff help you if needed.

  • Is the Genu Neurexa washable?

    Yes, you should wash the orthosis regularly. Please observe the corresponding information in the instructions for use.
