Patellofemoral Knee Orthotics
Collier recommends a variety of braces ideal for chronic patellar dislocations.
Patellofemoral knee is sometimes used as a generic term to describe pain at the front of the knee and around the knee cap.
Between 20° and 50° of flexion, the patella is at risk for abnormal tracking, subluxation, and dislocation. The 20.50 patellofemoral brace dynamically supports the patella through this range of flexion. This brace is great choice for high activity patients or those with severe strain on the patella.
