TECHNOLOGICAL SYSTEMS

STIFFENINGS

Splint 2R

Splints 2R – double axis polycentric splints, with rack gear which reflects the anatomic knee movement. Such splints are used in all knee joint braces where apart from angle adjustment lateral joint stabilization is also important. The splints are manufactured with high quality of aluminium alloy with sanded, durable cover which is neutral to the influence of sweat and salt. Required flexion and extension angle in every 20° is set by using the special pins. The splints are equipped with special oval covers to prevent the pins from falling out as well as from changing of the angle by unauthorized people. Standard length of the splints is 390 mm, but the braces with longer splints are additionally equipped with lateral stabilization of the knee joint. The splint and its design are patented in European Union by Reh4Mat Company. Splints 2RRack gearing Splints 2R

PADDINGS

3D supports

3D relief supports are independent technical solutions to relieve the rigid elements of a given orthosis. These elements are made of supporting foams or EVA foam. These foams are connected with various types of skin-friendly materials and materials with an adhesive function. These pads have the appropriate shape and color adapted to the type of orthosis. They relieve both metal elements of orthoses, such as splints, stays, underwires and orthopedic drop locks, as well as other elements that should not come into direct contact with the patient's skin. These pads have an anatomical shape and are made of comfortable foam with proper hardness and elasticity, guaranteeing the proper therapeutic effect.
