As the name suggests, a knee immobilizer is a brace that immobilizes the knee joint and prevents it from moving. If you are suffering from a fracture of the patella or upper shin bone, a knee immobilizer may be used to help keep things in place during healing. The benefit of an immobilizer as compared to a plaster cast is that it can be removed to allow a gentle motion to occur during healing. A knee immobilizer can also be used after ligament or tendon injury or surgery around the knee as it helps keep the knee straight to allow proper healing to occur.
