17PK1-WR CarbonIQ knee joint

17PK1-WR
Reference number 17PK1-WR
Function Locked knee joints
Waterproof CarbonIQ knee joint

Waterproof walking aids are essential devices for orthosis wearers, both for everyday personal hygiene and to participate in healthy activities such as water aerobics. The Aqualine with its waterproof versions of the CarbonIQ knee and ankle joint is specially designed for wet areas and supports users even in chlorinated water and salt water – with no loss of function. 

The Aqualine is also available in a children’s version so that children can also take swimming lessons just like their peers, participate in water aerobics if necessary or shower independently.

A proven high-performance plastic was reinforced with carbon fibres for this joint system. In addition to its stability and low weight, this material mix is also characterised by its resistance to corrosion. Thanks to its concealed wedge lock, the 17PK1-WR knee joint offers a high level of safety. For sitting down, the lock can be easily released by hand with a pull-release cable. For standing up, the lock in the joint clicks into place automatically, without the risk of trapping clothes.

However, the Aqualine consists of many more components than just the joints. All components are designed for the special conditions of wet areas down to the details and offer the greatest possible safety along with freedom of movement. Further information can be found in our brochure in the download area.
