The CarbonIQ joint system
Custom orthoses with CarbonIQ joints
Durable, robust, light
CarbonIQ system joints are suitable for custom orthoses fabricated by your orthopaedic technician for partial or full leg paralysis. What makes the CarbonIQ knee and ankle joints special is the material. The joints are made from a high-performance carbon fibre-reinforced plastic material: That makes them extremely durable, strong and yet very lightweight and splash proof.
The CarbonIQ knee joints are locked joints with a wedge lock, which is easy and safe to operate with only one hand using a pull-release cable. The lock in the joints clicks into place automatically when the user stands up with no danger of catching clothing or skin.
The ankle joints have a foot lifting effect and can be individually adapted to your needs by your prosthetist thanks to their numerous adjustment possibilities.
