What is Hyperextension?
Hyperextension happens when the leg moves too forcefully in the wrong direction, usually as a result of playing high-impact sports. This can cause a great deal of damage to the tendons and ligaments in the knee, resulting in long-term instability and a higher risk of injury.
How Can Hyperextension Be Prevented?
Limiting the knees range of motion is the key to preventing hyperextension, and the Ottobock Neurexa Brace does this with hinges that limit extension and flexion of the knee in increments of 10 - 15°. This stops the knee from moving into unnatural positions, which gives it the opportunity to heal while reducing the risk of further injury.
