The Mackie Hinge Knee Brace was developed on the basis of our success with the Mackie Hinge Elbow Brace. The Mackie Hinge Knee Brace uses a unique infinitely adjustable hinge mounted on a rigid, non-contact frame. This design offers simplicity of function, strong construction, and superior patient comfort. Because human physiology varies greatly from individual to individual, the hinge adjustability allows the patient to control how much force is applied to achieve the best result. For this patient-directed approach to be successful, patient tolerance and compliance is crucial. Static-Progressive Stretch is a proven concept for effective and permanent gain in range of motion.
The Mackie Hinge Knee Brace also has the ability to be used in both flexion and extension. This can avoid the added expense of a second brace because many patients require stretch in both directions. Physician prescribed Wearing Protocols allow the patient to incrementally stretch the joint to tolerance. The Mackie Hinge Knee Brace can be used with a variety of Wearing Protocols. Always follow your physicians instructions if they are different from our suggestions. Patient Application Instructions are easy to understand.
The frame and “Mackie” hinge of your brace are covered by a one year limited warranty against defects in materials or craftsmanship; soft goods are covered by a six month limited warranty.
The Mackie Knee Brace is designed to stretch soft tissue contractures and return the maximum range of motion possible to the joint. This treatment is usually prescribed following surgery and in addition to other therapeutic measures. The patient should discuss the wearing schedule with the physician who prescribed the brace.
