Orthopaedics provides a number of aids to stabilise joints in an acute pain phase and also in the case of adverse strain situations through guided movement.
Bandages for ankle joints or knees that support and protect the aching joint, especially when walking longer distances, and activate the muscles around the joint thanks to their compression effect.
Leg braces or splints made of sturdy carbon fibres or special plastics that provide strain relief and guided movement because they support themselves on the joint or on surrounding extremities.

Sensorimotor inlays that, unlike the standard ones that are based on a footprint, not only relieve the soles of the feet but also counteract functional wear problems.
