A German university has developed a knee brace which reduces constraint forces and the migration effect along the patient’s leg by solving the incongruity problem between the knee and the orthotic device.
Knee brace migration is a common problem which can affect patient compliance and possibly even reduce the effectiveness of a device. The key to minimizing knee brace migration is to make sure that the device fits the patient’s anatomy as closely as possible.
Therefore, the German university has developed a novel knee brace which solves the incongruity problem between knee and orthotic, thus minimizing the constraint forces and the migration effects.
The university is looking for partners (SMEs, industry) interested in a license agreement. A future partner would be authorized to use the technology and to develop a product which is ready for the market in exchange for a fee or a share of royalties.
