New from Becker: Model 1017, Automatic, Angled Lever-Lock Knee Joint
December 01, 2008
Model 1017 is a modular, lever-lock knee joint with a locking mechanism that will automatically engage when the joint reaches full extension. The modular design increases manufacturing options and allows for easier maintenance of the orthosis. The long, angled lever is easily operated by the patient and can be shortened or contoured to suit individual needs. Model 1017 comes with an optional anterior pull-cable that allows the patient to simultaneously disengage both locks by pulling on it.
