The new post op knee brace from Corflex has a few unique features.
First, the Contender is one of the lightest post braces available in the orthopedic market. This is important for patients to consider. As a patient you have rights. You can tell your surgeon what post-op knee brace you want for rehabilitation. You don’t want a heavy, clunky knee brace. You’re going to be wearing this brace a lot after surgery – it needs to be comfortable.
Second, the drop locks and adjustable length mechanisms are easy to operate. The more a practitioner struggles with the adjustment mechanism to fit a post op brace, the less likely it is that the post op brace will be fit correctly. Think about it.

The Contender Post-Op Knee Brace features a simple and precise adjustment system to minimize fit time after surgery, and at 27 oz., the brace is one of the lightest post-op knee braces available. The X-Flex™ cuff system significantly reduces brace migration by contouring around the leg for maximum contact. Telescoping cuffs extend to the malleolus, slip-resistant liners and custom-bendable aluminum uprights make the Contender Post-Op a brace that stays in place for all-day comfort.
The hinge features a six position drop lock that fixes the brace from -10° to 40° in 10° increments. Controlled range of motion is available from -10° to 110° and is easily set using flexion and extension finger-touch buttons. ZipTrak™ telescoping system facilitates length adjustment from 18” to 26” in just seconds and can be fine-tuned in increments as small as 1/8” to avoid unwanted pressure on incision sites.
This brace Brace features an easy-to-fit closure system with trimmable straps, QuikZip™ buckles and graduated ZipTrak™ telescoping uprights promoting a precise fit to every patient. Lightweight, custom-bendable, aircraft grade, aluminum uprights are notched to assist in contouring. Latex free foam liners assist with soft tissue containment and helps reduce brace migration.
