Lower limb support COMPLEX PLUS

COMPLEX PLUS TLSO

HKAFO TLSO ORTHESE WITH HIP, KNEE AND ANKLE ROM ADJUSTMENT WITH TLSO AND SHOULDER STRAPS

Product description

COMPLEX PLUS orthosis (spine, hip, thigh and calf part) is made of innovative fabric ACTIV DISTANCE II. It consists of polyurethane foam, external polyamide fabric which is easy to attach and internal terry. The fabric is soft but non-elastic that is very important during upright posture. Devices made of ACTIV DISTANCE II fabric are often better than rigid orthosis made of plastics material, because don’t cause bedsores and skin lesions. Internal terry improves the comfort of use.
The device is equipped with orthopaedic splints, dynamic carbon foot and TLSO brace. The splint are made of high quality aluminium hot covered by special powder surface, what makes them neutral to patient’s sweat.
The hip joint is equipped with 1-axial hinge with ROM adjustment in every 15 degrees and the knee joint holds 2-axial polycentric hinge with ROM adjustment in every 20 degrees. The ankle joint is non hinged.
For your special order, to ankle joint we can add our orthopaedic hinge 1R with ROM adjustment in every 15 degrees.
Each of these drop-locks can be adjusted in the required position and blocked against the displacement.
The thigh and calf part of orthosis provides height adjustment what allows to fit the device according to individual patient’s size.
The carbon foot is resilient in the front and heel part. Semi-rigid spiral splint and shin pelotte stabilize the orthosis on calf. Our carbon foot has 3 points of support: in the front middle-tibia, the tibial tuberosity and proximal tibial and fibula epiphyses. Because of that, all forces accumulates during limb loading and helps the patient with foot dorsal flexion. The dynamic ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) allows patient to have medial-lateral control of the foot and ankle complex due to strong lateral fixation of lower leg. The gait is improved and more aesthetic. The AFO construction is very light and easy to putting into shoe.
HKAFO TLSO stabilizes the spine, hip, knee and ankle joints. It prevents against foot drop and allows to adjust ROM adjustment in hip and knee joints. COMPLEX PLUS corrects the spinal deformations and by maintaining the upstraight posture, it improves the gait pattern. By this solution, our device reduces breathing and vascular problems that are common in case of thoracic hyperkyphosis.
Safe construction and soft and friendly fabrics make our HKAFO TLSO unrivalled with other devices available on the market.
The device is recommended for patients with weight up 70 kg and can be one or double-sided.

Indications

Double-sided HKAFO TLSO orthosis should be used in case of:

  • flaccid paraparesis;
  • myelocystocele, hydromyelomeningocele;
  • spinal muscular atrophy;
  • muscular dystrophy / myodystrophy with upper limbs mobility.

One-sided HKAFO TLSO orthosis should be used in case of:

  • severe knee joint instability or degeneration with foot paresis (sciatica, SM, Poliomyelitis – Heine-Medin disease);
  • tetraparesis – in upright position, while gait learning;
  • to immobilize in rehabilitation process after knee surgeries or diseases;
  • to prevent against hip, knee or ankle muscles contractures;
  • to proper hip position during walking or upright position.

The COMPLEX PLUS orhosis is innovative solution in case of partly feet amputation. In this case, there is necessary to use non-standard insole. The orthosis’s construction directs forces to upper tibia what offloads the amputated foot.
The orthosis can be used as an modular device – with patient’s recovery, the doctor can stop using the hip splint. In this case, the lower limb and ankle brace exists independently.
