NEURO LOCK H2O
The water-resistant NEURO LOCK H2O system knee joint has a locking pawl that locks the joint permanently. The locking pawl can be handled by means of the lever extension or a pulling cable. Thanks to the fixing pawl, the system joint can be permanently unlocked whereby it becomes a free moving joint with integrated posterior offset. Patients can use this function, for instance, when riding a bicycle. The NEURO LOCK H2O is available in the system widths 14mm, 16mm and 20mm
The system knee joint is permanently locked by the locking pawl. It can be unlocked for flexing the leg. The unlocking is done via a lever extension (lock lever) or a pulling cable. The orthotist can either mount the lever extension included in the scope of delivery or use a pulling cable which is available as an accessory part. Special feature: The NEURO LOCK H2O system knee joint can also be used as a main joint with complete load capacity in a unilateral orthosis.
