APPLICATION INFORMATION:

  1. Unfasten strap ends near black buckles and open brace flat by pulling both uprights apart.
  2. Place leg on top of flat brace. Shorter upright is applied to the thigh. Adjust brace until each upright is aligned to centerline of the medial and lateral sides of the leg and the center of the hinge is aligned with the center of the knee joint.
  3. Telescope sliders by depressing the slider button until the desired length is reached. The top and bottom sliders should be adjusted first, followed by the sliders closest to the knee (note that inner sliders cannot be adjusted until the outer sliders are moved to provide sufficient clearance). Ensure that both bars are equal in length and that each strap slider is indexed to the same position on each upright respectively.
  4. Adjust the strap lengths:
    • Ensure tab is lifted from the strap, allowing the strap to move freely (see arrow position A in figure 4) By pulling strap away from the body, remove slack from the backside of brace (see arrow position B in figure 4)
    • Ensure uprights are aligned on medial and lateral sides of leg
    • Lower tab and apply pressure to secure strap
  5. Attach each of the black buckles. Tighten straps by pulling on loose end. Remove excess strap and reposition alligator strap end to new edge of the strap. Secure strap-end to strap.
  6. A) Adjust the hinge by pulling the Flexion and Extension stops outward and rotating until the desired angle aligns with the button center. Release stops and ensure they are fully inserted.
    B) Utilize the quick-lock feature at -10, 0, 10, 20, or 30 degrees, by aligning red arrow with desired degree and sliding the red quick lock button inward until the lock is engaged. Ensure uprights do not rotate. If another lock setting is required, see step 6 and ensure both Flexion and Extension buttons are set at the same angle setting.
  7. To remove brace, release each buckle. Brace can then be re-applied as a single unit.

OTHER ADJUSTMENTS:
The hinge bars may be bent to add varus or valgus contouring. Bend each bar by holding thigh/calf bar firmly against a solid surface and apply gentle and constant pressure to the hinge in the direction desired. Bend each side bar an equal amount above and below the hinge. For optimal ease of application post-operatively, pre-fit the brace prior to surgery if possible.

STRAP REPLACEMENT: Should straps require replacement, carefully use scissors to cut away the strap where it connects to the slider. Insert the new strap and secure. Contact DJO for the X-ROM Replacement Straps Kit.

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS: Hand wash foam liners in water (30°C) with mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly. AIR DRY only, do not heat dry.
Regular cleaning of the brace is recommended.
