Maintain Optimal Post-Op Knee Extension
Made In the USA
“A persistent flexion contracture can be a greater impairment than limited knee flexion with poor long term outcomes and may cause abnormal stresses on both knees.” The Journal of Arthroplasty 29 (2014) 85-89
The Zero Degree Knee Trauma was created by a Traumatologist. He spent years using pillows, blankets, and other devices to maintain post-op extension. None of these methods adequately prevented internal rotation of the foot, nor reliably allowed for full extension of the knee. He worked with Bone Foam to design the Zero Degree Knee Trauma.
- Elevates the heel to create adequate free space posterior to the knee, to allow for full knee extension
- Keeps the toes pointed toward the ceiling in a plantigrade position
- Prevents external rotation of the foot, thus eliminating the associated flexion at the knee
