WHEN LIGAMENTS ARE DAMAGED Undamaged ligaments are the prerequisite for a perfect functioning knee joint. Ligaments support the rolling and sliding motions of the joint and ensure the necessary stability. Injuries to the ligaments can be caused by direct or indirect trauma: Direct traumas: • The direct trauma may result from a lateral force impacting the knee while the foot is fixed on the ground. This may lead to injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, and the meniscus (so called “unhappy triad”) Indirect traumas: • Injuries caused by valgus–outward rotation of the knee • Injuries caused by varus-inward rotation of the knee • Hyperextension • Abrupt contraction of the quadriceps while the knee is in flexed position In particular ligament ruptures are some of the most frequent injuries, especially due to traumas sustained during sporting activities. But falls and stumbling may also cause damage to the ligaments. Injuries to the anterior cruciate, medial and lateral collateral ligaments are very frequently diagnosed. Injuries to the posterior cruciate ligament are, in contrast, APPLICATION AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE BRACE The Pluspoint 4 is designed for use when individual ligaments are damaged (instabilities and ruptures) but may also be used for combined ligament instabilities. It can be used both before and after an operation. The brace is also effective to support conservative therapy. The basic principle of the Pluspoint 4 is the so called 4-point of stabilization, that compensates for ligament sprains. The flexion and extension may be adjusted gradually as required to ensure that the brace can be adapted precisely to the needs of the patient in every stage of therapy or rehabilitation. 9DCDP00097EN01.0318 Headquarter: ORTHOSERVICE AG Via Milano 7 · CH-6830 Chiasso (TI) · Switzerland · Tel. 0041 91 8220088 · Fax 0041 91 8220089 Niederlassung Deutschland: Orthoservice Deutschland GmbH Flugstraße 8 · D-76532 Baden-Baden · Deutschland Tel. 0049 (0)7221 9719780 · Fax 0049 (0)7221 9719782 · Sede italiana: RO+TEN s.r.l.
