The M.4s OA is a 4-point knee brace for control of anterior and posterior tibial translation offering a 3-point off-loader for varus or valgus pressure relief. It offers protection, stabilisation and pain relief whilst restoring mobility. The 4-point principle counteracts knee instability, often a cause of osteoarthritis. It safeguards against hyperextension and offers limitation of flexion and extension. The "S" profile improves torsional stability whilst following the natural alignment of femur and tibia.
