Single axis splint 1RP is designed to work in very heavy conditions and allows for transfer loads. This type of splint is primarily used in knee orthoses, where strong lateral stabilization of the knee joint and precise regulation of its mobility are essential. They are used in orthopaedic braces that were designed for heavy patients or for people who use them in extreme conditions. The arms of the splint are made of high-quality hardened steel, hot-coated with a durable powder coating, which makes them very strong and indifferent to the effects of patient’s sweat and salt contained in it. The drop locks are made of very durable and strong acid-resistant steel in which a special hole system with threads were made. The splints are waterproof and can be used in wet and humid environments.
The splint is equipped with the hyperextension knee lock and has following angles of joint flexion: 30 ,50, 70 degrees and the following angles of joint extension: free joint, 20 degrees. The ROM adjustment is made with a special, hardened screws placed into threaded holes marked with a specific angle value we want to lock. In this kind of splint, you can lock not only the angles of flexion and extension of a knee joint, but also the desired range of knee joint movement. Each brace equipped with 1RP splint comes with a free Allen key for these settings. This method of adjusting drop locks in orthopedic splints prevents from their setting by unauthorized persons who do not have a key. The bottom part of the drop lock has an oval shape that allows you to attach a soft anatomic pad made in 3D technology that separates drop lock from the knee. All movable elements of the splints move on galvanized steel rivets and in order to prevent them from seizing, special Teflon sliders were used in these places. Such a construction ensures their maintenance-free operation.
ATTENTION: If the brace is equipped with two side splints, the adjustment should always be made separately on each of the splints, setting the range of motion at the same angle of flexion, extension or lock. Failure to comply with this role will be resulted in the loss of the product warranty.
