Its side-lying design offers a practical solution for users, enhancing their comfort during sleep and rest periods.
- Prevention of Contractures: Knee abductors can help prevent leg contractures by keeping the knees and legs properly aligned and separated. They can also aid in stretching exercises as part of a physical therapy regimen for existing contractures.
- Post-Surgical Recovery: After knee surgery, especially after total knee replacement or procedures involving the lower limbs, a knee abductor can help maintain proper alignment and prevent the legs from touching each other, which can help in the healing process and prevent complications.
- Pressure Sore Prevention: By keeping the knees slightly apart, a knee abductor can help reduce the pressure and friction that occurs when the knees rub together, which can lead to pressure sores, skin irritation, or exacerbate existing sores.
- Pain and Discomfort Relief: For individuals with certain conditions like arthritis or hip dysplasia, a knee abductor can help
reduce discomfort and pain by promoting a more natural and comfortable alignment while resting or sleeping.
- Improved Posture and Circulation: By promoting proper alignment of the lower body, knee abductors can also improve
overall body posture and enhance circulation in the lower limbs.
