Xeleton — a highly effective combination of protection and anti-migration properties
The clinical incidence of knee ligament injuries is on the rise for both men and women. Anterior cruciate ligament ruptures are the most common type of knee injury.1, 2 In the US and Central Europe, the incidence per thousand people is between 0.5 to 1 ACL ruptures every year.3
The Xeleton knee brace was designed to address this increase, providing optimal rehabilitation support following a cruciate ligament injury, rupture or surgery. Ideal for activities of daily living, such as standing, walking and climbing stairs, the Xeleton’s functional 4-point rigid frame design provides a high degree of stability while limiting tibial subluxation (anterior and posterior drawer sign). Thanks to its anatomical shape, user-friendly design and anti-migration features, Xeleton offers extraordinary wearer comfort. Just ask the people who wear it on the field and off.
Four Point Principle
In combination with the four point frame system, the strapping system hits the gold standard for preventing migration. The Xeleton prevents subluxation in all directions. The frame encompasses the thigh anteriorly and the calf posteriorly. A custom strap system takes this durable product from off-the-shelf to a custom fit that matches the patient’s indications every time.
