Frontier Medical Group is continuing its innovative journey, introducing Repose Flex, which has been designed to place the knee in slight flexion (5°to 10°) and allows complete heel offloading while effectively re-distributing the weight of the patient’s leg across its surface.
By placing the knee in slight flexion, the risk of popliteal vein compression at the rear of the knee is reduced.
Supplied with attached Polyurethane fixing straps, Repose Flex is held securely in position and limits any infection control issues when cleaning.
