Knee brace helps Danny Cipriani recover from ligament injury

5 August 2013

England Premiership rugby player Danny Cipriani is recovering from ligament damage with the help of an innovative knee brace that stabilises the joint and prevents over extension.

The Genu Arexa knee brace, made by Ottobock, has allowed Cipriani to regain mobility sooner by providing greater stability. As a result, he trusted his joint sooner, which is critical for an early recovery and a return to everyday activities.

"Wearing the knee brace has enabled me to carry on as normal whilst undergoing my physiotherapy”, said Danny Cipriani. “My knee brace allowed me to get up and about soon after my accident and has really offered me the stability and confidence to go about my daily activities in comfort as I recover."

Tom O'Malley, Lead Physiotherapist at Sale Sharks Rugby Club said, "The knee brace has been instrumental in Danny Cipriani's recovery. It provides guidance and stabilisation for the knee at all levels and protects against hyperextension. 40% of knee injuries involve ligament damage so the Genu Arexa is a great choice for people who have suffered this type of trauma and who are keen to get back out playing sports like Danny."

The international award-winning Genu Arexa knee brace from Ottobock enables strong support in the healing process in either postoperative or conservative treatment. The brace adapts to the knee with help from intelligent padding and auto-adaptive plastic shells to offer comfort to the wearer whilst protecting the knee, providing optimal stabilisation. It also offers a practical Click-2-Go system which allows the wearer to set the range of motion without the use of tools. Knee stabilisation after injury ensures a safe return to sport and everyday activities along with a feeling of confidence.
