17B66 Multifunctional system ankle joint

Multifunktions-System-Knöchelgelenk
Reference number 17B66
Function Multifunction ankle joints
Multifunctional use

The multifunctional system ankle joint can be adapted to the user’s needs. If these change, or if fine adjustment is necessary, readjustment can be performed without difficulty.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Nine functional versions are possible thanks to the combination of springs, stops and spring stops in the dorsal and plantar joint channel.
  • The ankle joint permits an angle adjustment of 50 degrees. The orthosis joint can be continuously adjusted within this angle.
  • On the one hand, it is suitable for limiting movement, for example in case of ICP or spina bifida. On the other hand, it can be used to support dorsal extension in case of lower leg muscle weakness, to prevent hyperextension of the knee joint or for energy return during toe-off.
  • It is also possible to use the 17B66 for dorsal and plantar support or as a dorsiflexion assist with an adjustable dorsal stop in case of peroneal palsy with or without a knee joint lock.
  • Four foot stirrups are available for constructing various types of orthoses.
