KNEE AND HIP ORTHOSIS WITH ROM ADJUSTMENT
Flaccid paralysis and paresis
Peripheral nervous system injury may result in flaccid paralysis and deep sensibility disorders. The reason can be infantile paralysis (poliomyelitis), injuries (spine crash or fracture), toxins (alcohol, diabetes) and degeneration conditions.
Poor myotonus (muscle weakness) is typical symptom of peripheral paresis. Disease of peripheral nerves and muscles are characterized by, together with flaccid paralysis, fast and big myatrophy (denervation).
We created knee and hip orthosis OKD-14 for patients who have problems with lower limb stabilization and correct muscles work.
Knee and hip orthosis OKD-14 with ROM adjustment is comprised of soft hip part and long knee brace. It’s made of Active Distance and ActivDistance II.
Active Distance is non-elastic, soft, supporting material. It’s easy to attach what allows to adjust of circumferential.
The hip part of orthosis, made of Active Distance, provides circumferential adjustment so this is more universal. The hip part is equipped with soft lateral support, circumferential straps and splint with length adjustment.
In addition, hip brace has drop-lock with ROM adjustment in every 15 degrees. Also, our 1RE splint is 1-axial splint with hypertension control – capability to adjust 15 and 30 degrees of extension. Our lightweight splints are made of high quality aluminium with carbon fibres and provide excellent stabilization.
The second material used in lower limb brace is ACTIVdistance II.
The internal side of brace is covered by cotton skin-friendly layer with Oeco-Tex Standard 100 certification.
Knee brace is equipped with six circumferential straps and splint 2R or 1RE.
Range of motion can be controlled in 20 degree (2R) and in 15 degree (1RE) increments. Every drop-lock can be stopped in the required range.
The materials are soft but non-elastic. This “stiffness” provides excellent fit and stabilization.
OKD-14 lower limb orthosis can replace traditional orthopaedics plastic splints. Our orthosis is very comfortable and doesn’t cause bedsores or skin lesions.
OKD-14 supports and stabilizes knee and hip joints and provide po-op control. It supports the hip and knee in walk therapy. OKD-14 controls the range of motion in joints and prevents against the contractures.
The OKD-14 orthosis is one-sided in standard. We can make double orthosis (for right and left side together) if it is necessary.
One-sided lower limb brace OKD-14 is used in case of:
- severe knee and hip instability and degeneration disorders
- lower limb paresis – in walk therapy
- after severe knee and hip surgeries where immobilization is necessary
- prevention and treatment of contractures
- posture control in rehabilitation
Double lower limb brace OKD-14 is used in case of:
- flaccid paralysis
- spinal muscular atrophy
- muscular dystrophy of lower limbs
