Otto Bock Healthcare has launched Patella Pro to help relieve the effects of anterior knee pain and assist recovery. The patella re-centring orthosis helps to combat the effects of anterior knee pain and luxation of the knee joint, as well as helping patients maintain the correct physiological position of the kneecap. "For individuals suffering from anterior knee pain, Patella Pro is an innovative orthosis offering a functional, dynamic re-centring technique that can be used in therapy, treatment and as part of a tailored rehabilitation programme," said Andrew McLean at Otto Bock. "The orthosis relieves the pressure on soft tissue around the knee joint, which is often inflamed, so that suitable conditions for physiological regeneration are created. Orthotic supports such as Patella Pro enhance recovery and wellbeing by giving users greater mobility, strength and co-ordination."
