How to read knee brace flexion over 30 degrees
« on: October 09, 2021, 02:20:51 PM »
Hi Folks

Rookie question. 

It was easy for me to determine my flexion whilst in the 0-30 range, the dial is very easy to read.  However, is there a trick to determine the flexion when over 30 degrees using the symbols on my brace please?

I guess i'm near or on 40 degrees but can't be entirely sure - please see pic attached.

Hi Kace

Your OS or Physio has a special plastic halfmoon measuring device, so hang on there -   A full measure is in the region of 120 ROM
