Gripper hinged knee brace provides stabilization to the middle and sides of your knee without slipping down.  The length of the brace measures 12" in length.

The MedSpec Gripper Hinged Knee Brace provides effective medial/lateral ligament support for a variety of knee conditions. LCL and MCL sprains, lateral and medial instabilities (side to side), meniscal tears, osteoarthritis and knee strains while resisting distal migration.  It’s the only off the shelf hinged knee brace that has super strong metal hinges and super light.  Straps close in opposite direction to prevent twisting. Skinloc on the calf to prevent slipping, which is a big problem with most other off the shelf hinged knee braces.   Wrap around design and padding along the hinges for comfort.  Straps are half elastic and half nonelastic for expansion during muscle contraction.


CoolFlex and Neoprene


The Gripper 12” is available in two different base materials:  Neoprene and CoolFlex™.  The neoprene version provides warmth and superior compression.  The Gripper 12" is made with a thinner and lighter neoprene.  The CoolFlex version is breathable and hypoallergenic. All MedSpec braces are latex free.


Compliance & Migration


Internal  SkinLoc™ pad works in concert with the outer closure strap to grip the proximal end of the calf muscle and inhibit the brace from migrating distally, thereby enhancing patient compliance. Easy to apply wraparound design provides medial and lateral stability and resists downward migration.


Features and Benefits


  • Internal skinloc patch: works in concert to grip the proximal end of the calf muscle and inhibits the brace from migrating distally
  • Aluminum hinges: pockets are reinforced with ballistic nylon material to protect stitching from metal hinges and improve durability
  • Neoprene material: offers better compression
  • CoolFlex (TM) material: offers enhanced breathability
  • Open popliteal: minimizes material bunching during flexion to improve comfort
  • Bilateral design: fits either right or left knee
  • US manufacturing: higher quality control standards
  • Outer closure straps: straps are made of quality woven elastic and woven nylon material
  • Durability of straps: allows for numerous applications without fraying or losing closure strength


Common Examples of Use


  • Medial (inside of knee) Collateral Ligament (MCL) injuries and instabilities
  • Lateral (outside of knee) Collateral Ligament (LCL) injuries and instabilities
  • Lateral or medial instability of the knee
  • Limit hyperextension
  • Meniscus injuries
  • Mild osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee


Ease of Application & Comfort


The wraparound anterior closure allows for ease of application and an optimum fit. Open popliteal minimizes material bunching during flexion to improve comfort. 


Durability


Straps are made of high tension elastic that allows for numerous applications without fraying or losing closure strength. Metal hinge pockets are reinforced on the inside with ballistic nylon material at wear points to prevent hinge from wearing through the pocket.
