The UTX POST is a lightweight long leg brace (also called KAFO, orthosis, or splint). It is an edition of the UTX, specially developed to suppress the great forces around the knee due to severe hyperextension. The UTX POST pelottes at the lower leg are mounted at the back (posterior – hence the name POST). As a result, this variant is perfectly capable of correcting the knee that wants to move backwards. The UTX support surfaces (pelottes) of the UTX are placed as close as possible to the knee (without interfering) to maximize control over the knee.
The UTX POST can be combined with all versions of the UTX. However, donning and doffing (depending on the chosen support around the ankle and foot) may be a little more difficult. Therefore, this variant is chosen only if the overstretching of the knee gives rise to this.
