The unilateral joint system
Orthotic joints for leg paralysis
Benefits at a glance
Comfortable to wear
The joints can be used unilaterally up to 110kg of a body weight which makes the orthosis particularly light, slim and comfortable to wear.
Titanium: particularly lightweight
The joint system is also available in an ultra-lightweight titanium version.
Always the right size
The joint system is available in different sizes, including size versions especially for children.
The unilateral joint system consists of a locked knee joint with wedge lock and a multifunction ankle joint. While the knee joint is permanently locked, it can be unlocked using a lock lever or pull cable, for example when you want to sit down. The joint engages automatically when you get up and fully stretch your leg.
The ankle joint has a foot lifting assist with nine different possible combinations of spring, stop and spring stop. This gives your orthotist a large range of adjustments to your individual needs.
No, but Ottobock's Aqualine orthosis system is a waterproof walking device designed especially for wet conditions. All of the components used are designed for contact with water.
