The Gladiator uses a star ROM hinge to effectively protect the ACL, MCL and others ligaments in the knee. The rigid strapping system anchors the Gladiator firmly to the leg, avoiding the need for longer, less comfortable braces. Pins in the hinges can be easily set to limit inflection and/or extension.
- ACL rupture
- Meniscus rupture
- Ligament support
- Postoperative knee instability
The Gladiator is made to protect knees from sprains or ruptures. The heavy hinge is 38 centimetres long and is firmly anchored in the brace’s rigid strapping system to prevent unwanted twisting and bending. The hinge can be used to control the range of motion with attached pins that can be set to limit extension and flexion. The Gladiator also contains a Visco gelring around the patella to control swelling and joint pain. Made from the patented material of BioSkin, the Gladiator is comfortable to wear and does not pinch even behind the knee.
