The NEURO SWING H2O system ankle joint is a dirt- and water-resistant joint, fitted with a robust, carbon fibre-reinforced joint case. It dynamically brings the patient into an upright position and improves the patient’s safety while standing and walking. The motion control in dorsiflexion is achieved through an integrated, increased dorsiflexion assist. In plantar flexion, motion control is achieved through a controlled, dynamic plantar flexion, a controlled tibial progression and an affected knee flexion moment during loading response.
The system joint provides a dynamic and adjustable dorsiflexion and plantar flexion stop. The stops are set by the spring units. The orthosis’ alignment is adjustable. The range of motion and spring force can be adjusted in dorsiflexion as well as in plantar flexion by exchanging the spring units of the dirt- and water-resistant joint case.
The system joint adjustments do not influence each other. Therefore, they can be changed separately and independently.
