Showering and going to the pool with the orthosis

Benefits at a glance

Waterproof and durable

Not only the joints but all components of the Aqualine orthosis system are waterproof. Chlorine, salt water, fresh water and soap do not impair the functionality nor the appearance of the orthosis. Ottobock has reinforced a high-performance plastic material proven numerous times with carbon fibres in order to achieve this. The bathing orthosis is very sturdy and yet lightweight thanks to this novel composite material, which was used here for the first time. You can move about safely in wet areas with the Aqualine.


The Aqualine orthosis system is ideal for use in wet areas. You can simply remove the loop strap for drying after use. In order to prevent skin irritation, skin contact with the orthosis is minimised. Using antibacterial materials for the fabrication of the orthosis by your orthotist is recommended. This improves the good hygienic characteristics of the Aqualine even further.

Safety comes first

The modern locking system of the Aqualine knee joint provides you with the required safety. When you sit down, you can easily operate the lock with a pull-release cable to unlock it. The lock in the joint clicks into place automatically when standing up, without there being a risk of trapping clothes. Since the risk of slipping is especially high on wet floors, we recommend the use of a full-surface anti-slip sole. Of course you can also wear a bathing shoe as an alternative as well.
