Knee Immobilizer

Knee Immobilizer

Knee immobilizers are a type of brace that hospitals love to overcharge for.  These are simple orthopedic devices designed to keep the leg locked in full extension.  These knee braces do not have hinges that bend.  They have metal bars or aluminum struts that prevent the knee from bending.  Knee immobilizers are usually applied before or after surgery and are not designed to be worn for extended periods of time.

A simple type of orthopedic felt or neoprene hold the bars in place and the entire brace is suspended on the leg with a series of straps.  These braces are generally long because a long lever arm is required to keep the knee from bending.

Hospitals should charge between $25 ad $100 for a knee immobilizer.
