Date:2/5/2013

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Breg, Inc., a premier provider of sports medicine products and services, announced today four new products that will advance the orthopedic practice. The highlight of the new introduction is a next generation post-operative knee brace, the T Scope® Premier, for patients recovering from knee surgery and injuries. Also launched today: the Carlsbad Cervical Collar for cervical spine immobilization; the Ultra CTS® Ankle Brace that converts from acute ankle support to rehabilitation; and the Achilles Wedges for foot rehabilitation.

"Our patients really liked the comfort of the T Scope Premier, particularly with the new incision pad," said Timothy J. Steinagle , DO, FACS, TOA Sports Medicine in Smyrna, Tennessee, and field trial site for the brace. "When patients are more comfortable, they are more compliant, which is critical for successful rehabilitation. Additionally, the range-of-motion stops on the new brace are even easier to use. Well done Breg."

"About 1.4 million knee procedures are performed in the U.S. every year and rising1 as demographics shift to an increasingly older and active population," said Brad Lee , president of Breg. "We developed the T Scope Premier with input from orthopedic surgeons and patients to enhance ease of use, comfort and fit. We expect this brace to have a significant impact on the growing post-op recovery market."  

The T Scope Premier builds on the telescoping design of the original T Scope which medical professionals have trusted for years. The new brace features a refined range-of-motion hinge, a simplified user interface, redesigned pads and cuffs and an optional BridgeTech Incision Pad for adjustable comfort around the incision site. The result is a high performance, comfortable knee brace designed to provide protected, controlled range-of-motion for patients recovering from knee surgery or for those who have knee injuries or instabilities.

Other new products:

  • Ultra CTS™ Ankle Brace is the first custom treatment system that transforms from acute ankle brace to low profile activity brace as the patient progresses through rehabilitation. The brace's PerformaFit™ upright stays attached for acute injury and can be detached for return to activity. The Ultra CTS ankle brace features Performathane® technology which custom forms to the injured ankle, constantly reforming with edema reduction.
  • Carlsbad Cervical Collar provides cervical spine immobilization with full adjustability and comfort. The semi-rigid frame restricts flexion, extension and lateral rotation. With dual height adjustments, six size settings and half-size increments, patients get a personalized fit, and health care professionals will always have the right size on hand. The product is radiolucent for use under X-ray, CT and MRI.
  • Achilles Wedges place the foot in planter flexion to offload the Achilles tendon during rehabilitation. The wedges provide comfortable, customized height adjustments with four interlocking wedges that maintain an angle of plantar flexion at 5 degrees, 10 degrees, 15 degrees or 20 degrees. Achilles Wedges are available for all walker boots except range-of-motion (ROM) walkers and Breg's Vectra™ Lite Walker Boot (unless a heel clip is used).
