- Immobilisation of the knee at 0° resp. 20°
Occasionally pain may develop in the calf during the first few hours of use. If this has not reduced considerably after 24 hours, the doctor should be contacted. You should also contact your doctor in the case of sudden pain, swelling, loss of sensation or a feeling of coldness in the foot or if the toes become blue. In this event, while you are waiting for the doctor, loosen the Velcro fasteners and keep the leg completely still until you are given further instructions.
Open all the straps and place the orthosis under the patient‘s leg. Note: The side parts of the medi Classic can be lengthend or shortened. Open the velcro on each side and fix it again, in the postion you prefer.
If necessary, the medial and lateral rods can be moulded.
Wrap the sides around the leg so that the kneecap remains uncovered.
First close the thigh straps, then the calf straps. Tighten the Velcro fastener directly above the knee again.
