Knee Extension Assist

Knee Extension Assist

from Fillauer LLC

The Fillauer Orthotic Knee Extension Assist is a user adjustable extension assist that can be attached to virtually any orthotic knee joint. In orthotic knee joints with a locking mechanism, the Extension Assist helps insure that the knee joint reaches full extension and the lock engages, helping to enable patients in safe ambulation. The Extension Assist incorporates a mechanism that allows for let off after 35° of knee flexion, allowing for sitting without the constant pull of the mechanism causing irritation and strain. With a user adjustable elastomeric tension, individuals can dial in the amount of assist they need to suit their own activities.
