By Matt Slocum and Nick ShackelfordPosted May 08, 2018 04:18:59A new knee brace developed in the United Kingdom is making a splash on the orthopedics world.
The company behind the device says it’s a revolutionary new way to brace a knee that can help people avoid falls and injuries while improving joint range of motion and quality of life.
The product is called the Arthrogryposis Stabilizer.
It’s an innovative design that was developed by the Royal Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the world’s leading body of orthopedists.
“It’s an extremely effective device,” said Michael Sankowitz, a medical director at the Royal College of Surgeons in London.
“We believe it’s the best we’ve seen to date.”
The Arthrombotic Arthrogram, which was developed to be used in a clinical setting, is an orthopedist’s answer to braces used by people with other conditions.
It allows patients to bend their knees with ease while preventing them from falling over or being injured.
“In a patient who has a hip replacement, for example, they could potentially bend their hip back and forth and then be a little bit unstable and fall down,” said Dr. Sankowksi.
“But this new brace will help them not fall down.”
The product works like this: Arthrobotic Arthus is an adhesive-based material that is injected into a patient’s knee.
This adhesive-like substance is injected through a hole in the knee.
The injection is then applied to the back of the knee, which has a rubber band that wraps around the joint.
The ArTHROMBOT is used to stabilize a knee joint and keep it from buckling and flexing.

This injectable substance works to create a tight, stable bond between the ligaments in the joint and the bone surrounding it.
“The ArTHERAC has been developed to allow patients to control their pain and keep their knee joint in good shape,” said Sankowicz.
“This new technique is not only safe and effective, but it’s also much more affordable, as it is the same adhesive used to put braces on patients with hip replacements.”
The new device, called the arthrogyrposis, has been tested on more than 3,000 patients and has been approved by the British Orthopsychiatry Council.
“For patients who have lost or are losing their hip, or are not in good health, we believe the arTHROMBS are the best device for them,” said the company.
“ArTHROMBO is the only product that can deliver the precision and stability of a real brace, but without the risks of being injured or falling.”
The device uses a unique gel-like compound called “Sagrac,” which is injected via a hole drilled in the back and is used by patients to adjust the height of the joint when they walk.
“Sagradac has a unique structure that is a very low-density gel, which means that it is able to retain a certain amount of the gel-to-bone density and still be able to stabilize the joint,” said Arthrobotics UK founder, Dr. Michael Sanks.
“As the gel is injected in the site of the injection, it will compress the bone around the injection site, keeping the joint stable.”
And this compression is key, because the gel needs to stay in place long enough to prevent it from swelling or breaking down.
“Sankowicz said the gel has been clinically tested on hundreds of patients and found to be safe and safe for most people.”
What’s exciting is that it’s not just the arCHROMBS that we are looking at, but other products that have been tested and approved, too.””
They have been very happy with the results and they’ve not experienced any pain at all.”
What’s exciting is that it’s not just the arCHROMBS that we are looking at, but other products that have been tested and approved, too.
“They’re being tested by a range of organisations, and we think that we have a pretty good idea of the safety of this product.”
If we are to develop the product further, it would be great to have other companies use this technology in their research.
“The company is currently looking to expand to other countries.
