DJO added the Excyabir hip brace and CryoKnee knee braces to its DonJoy bracing brand. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The acquisition of the Excyabir hip brace and the CryoKnee knee brace provides innovative bracing solutions to healthcare providers and patients alike,” said Jason Anderson, president of bracing and supports. “We are pleased to welcome Excyabir and CryoKnee to the DonJoy brand. We are confident these products will help grow our bracing business.”
Outcome-Based Technologies designed Excyabir to increase patient compliance using a lower-profile design. It is a hip brace used in post-op hip arthroscopy, hip osteoarthritis, post-op total hip replacement and other procedures. The wearable device provides a slight abduction and internal rotation force to the femur while walking to shift force and impact to less worn areas of the cartilage, according to the company.
CryoKnee was designed by Outcome-Based Technologies to provide compression, support and cold/hot therapy through an integrated pouch in the brace. The orthopedic device is used to treat knee instability/laxity, post-op knee replacement or knee arthroscopy and many other indications.
“The flagship Excyabir hip brace is an innovative, modular hip brace with capability to integrate cold therapy,” said Don LoGuercio, president of Outcome-Based Technologies. “There are about 200,000 hip arthroscopies done every year in the US, and we believe Excyabir hip braces offer a unique solution. We are thrilled that Enovis will help bring this technology to more providers and their patients.”
