Knee Bracing after Quadriceps Tendon Rupture


John Hardy recommends the TROM™ Advance Cool as an off the shelf and cost effective brace for patients following Quadriceps Tendon Rupture.

John is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in London and Bristol in the UK.

John told OrthopaedicsandTrauma.com "I was fortunate enough to spot a new radiological sign associated with quadriceps tendon rupture. The study demonstrated the association of patella spur and quadriceps tendon rupture. I recommend this brace before tendon repair to allow continued mobilisation in the face of the loss of the quadriceps power and after as I can control the return of range of movement with precision. The drop lock hinge seen in the clip on the left is great for locking the leg in extension with ease". (Hardy JR, Chimutengwende-Gordon M, Bakar I.
