Simplified Fit with the New Pentagon Knee Orthosis
October 31, 2010
The Pentagon™, from Anatomical Concepts, is a posterior fitting, single-upright, five-function knee orthosis that provides the orthopedic/rehabilitation team with a patient friendly alternative to the traditional bulky double-upright hinged-knee device configuration. This system allows the calf and thigh segments to dynamically shorten and lengthen with the patient's extremity during knee flexion and extension. Compensation for this shortening and lengthening is through the use of a patented, free-motion cam that is incorporated into the thigh and calf cuffs. The Pentagon is available in adult #1150 and pediatric #1050 sizes. ROM only variation also available.
