About the 950KMO

The 950KMO™ (Knee Management Orthosis) is a cost-effective, patient friendly, single posterior jointed knee orthoses that has a simple approach for static, progressive positioning of the knee

The 950 KMO offers advantages over a simple knee immobiliser.  Adjustment of the knee joint position can be easily and precisely set with the minimum of fuss. This allows you to easily accommodate knee flexion contractures, post-operative range of motion positioning or minor fracture stabilisation.

All you need is a screwdriver.  The range of motion can be pre-set prior to fitting the patient which is a great boon for convenience and efficiency.
