derotation brace

[dē′rōtā′shən]
a customized orthosis that provides stability at the knee joint. It consists of a single-joint hinged bar on one side and a rotating dial pad on the opposite side. The rotating pad can be placed on either the medial or the lateral side, depending on the location of the primary instability. Each brace is designed individually, based on a negative plaster cast of the knee.
