PEL Supply Offers the OAK Orthotic Knee Joint
February 25, 2013
The OAK™ (Osteo-Arthritis Knee) Joint from Fillauer LLC, for use in custom knee orthoses, provides motion that better approximates normal physiologic knee movement. Unlike simple pivot knee joints, the polycentric action of the OAK provides inherent stability at full extension and easy gliding during swing phase, allowing the patient to feel "glide-flex" stability during the first 5° of flexion. Flexion is dynamically adjustable with extension stops to meet rehabilitative demands. It is available with Comfil® thermoformable composite materials, which can be custom fit with a heat gun for increased comfort and support.
