The aim of the invention is to propose an orthodic, in particular a knee orthodic, which may be adapted more easily to a changing knee width.
The invention relates to an orthodic, in particular a knee orthodic, having two load-bearing joints (12, 14), each joint having a proximal leg (16.1, 16.2) and a distal leg (18.1, 18.2).
A knee orthosis is provided which includes a suspension strap for securing the orthopedic device to the wearer's leg.
A knee orthosis has two vertical struts positioned on opposed sides of a knee joint in a generally parallel relationship.
An orthesis for the human knee has two joints (1, 2) arranged at the sides of the knee, with projecting arms (4, 5, 6, 7) which surround the kneecap.
The joint component set for a knee orthotic comprises a medial leg joint component and an outer leg joint component.
The knee orthosis device generally includes a central mechanism mechanically connecting the first support mechanism and the second support mechanism.
Exemplary embodiments of a knee orthosis device for providing support to a patient during a gait cycle are provided that generally include a first support mechanism and a second support mechanism.
