The success of an articular cartilage repair is dependent upon patient compliance during the rehabilitation process and the protocol is based on restricted cartilage load combined with gradual increase in activity. Many rehabilitation protocols suggest partial weight-bearing as the standard of care for successful outcomes. However, patient compliance to partial weight-bearing instructions with crutches has been shown to be inconsistent.

The Rebound Cartilage is a protective functional solution designed to support regeneration of the knee cartilage after repair procedures such as Microfracture, OATS and (M)ACI. Based on the clinically proven 3-point Leverage System and patented Cartilage Protection Straps™, joint unloading is maintained in flexion for protection of the cartilage during the healing process.

Ossur Rebound Cartilage

    • Dual Cartilage Protection Straps™ (CPS) maintain joint unloading in flexion for protection of cartilage during the healing process.
    • Breathable wrap-around sleeve integrated with Sensil® silicone coated calf liners and doeskin thigh liners that provide increased comfort while ensuring adequate suspension.
    • Color-coded Quick Fit buckles enable easy application and removal.
    • Optional modular Flexion Control kit provides range of movement restriction if prescribed in rehabilitation protocol.
    • Articular cartilage defect repair needing unicompartmental load reduction or range of movement restriction.
    • Cartilage knee trauma benefiting from unloading or movement restriction.
    • May also be beneficial for other unicompartmental knee conditions that require unloading, movement restriction, such as:
      • Meniscal repair
      • Avascular necrosis
      • Condylar bone marrow lesions (bone bruises)
      • Tibial plateau fractures
