Rebound Cartilage protects healing tissue from overload in prehabilitation, and rehabilitation of cartilage injuries and meniscal lesions.
Cartilage and meniscal injuries usually lead to significant knee dysfunction and knee pain. Prehabilitation is often indicated to limit knee pain and keep the patient functional until surgery is scheduled. Post-operatively, the success of meniscal and articular cartilage repair is dependent upon patient compliance during the rehabilitation process. The protocol is based on restricted weight-bearing combined with gradual increase in activity. Many rehabilitation protocols suggest partial weight-bearing as the standard of care for successful outcomes. However, patient compliance with partial weight-bearing instructions using crutches has been shown to be inconsistent.
Rebound Cartilage is a protective functional solution designed for prehabilitation / pre-surgical management, and rehabilitation of cartilage injuries and meniscal lesions. By protecting the healing tissue from overload, the Rebound Cartilage complements accelerated rehabilitation protocols.
- Dual Cartilage Protection Straps™ (CPS) maintain joint unloading in flexion for protection of cartilage during the healing process.
- Breathable wrap-around sleeve integrated with Sensil® silicone coated calf liners and doeskin thigh liners that provide increased comfort while ensuring adequate suspension.
- Color-coded Quick Fit buckles enable easy application and removal.
- Optional modular Flexion Control kit provides range of movement restriction if prescribed in rehabilitation protocol.
Articular cartilage defect repair needing unicompartmental load reduction or range of movement restriction. Cartilage knee trauma benefiting from unloading or movement restriction. May also be beneficial for other unicompartmental knee conditions that require unloading, movement restriction, such as: – Meniscal repair – Avascular necrosis – Condylar bone marrow lesions (bone bruises) – Tibial plateau fractures
