Post OP knee brace
« on: May 30, 2014, 01:24:19 AM »
So I was fitted yesterday for a knee brace after my surgery.  I havenít ever seen one like this - It is the Bledsoe G3 adjusted brace.

It came with a rather lengthy instruction booklet.  The surgeonís staff recommended that I try it on and make the adjustments before bringing it with me for surgery.  Has anyone else used one of these before?  It seems really well built (cost a fortune +400) but since I will be locked in with a straight leg for quite a while, I was wondering how it held up.  I attached a couple of images of the actual brace.

I just bought a Donjoy Cool IROM Brace, which looks similar. After taking forever to work out how I exactly want it, I think it's a pretty ordinary piece of equipment for a straight leg immobilizer. Or I am not strapping it up right. It feels like it needs to be to put on very tight. I am going to get another brace which doesn't hinge for this.
