Indications
Paresis of leg muscles resulting in knee hyperextension for example after stroke, lumbar disc herniation, peripheral nerve damage, etc.

Effects
Genu Neurexa stabilises the knee; at the same time the patella is stabilised, hyperextension is prevented and collateral instability is reduced. All components together; lockable bilateral aluminum splints and inelastic crossed straps in the knee fold give, together with the large surface coverage, a mechanical stabilisation. A good effect on the proprioceptors is also obtained, which affect the sensorimotor system.
