The objectives of contracture treatment are to restore joint functionality and avoid
deformities. The static correction joint system for the upper and lower extremity
(hand, elbow, knee, and ankle joints) is suitable for fittings for adults as well as
children. It is used in positioning orthoses with the joints matching the known
dimensions of the Ottobock portfolio of joint bars.

The individually required angles are continuously adjustable by means of a worm
gear. For orientation, control and targeted adjustment of the correction, an angle
scale is printed on the joints.

An easy-on, easy-off system has been developed for quick application and removal of
the orthosis, allowing correction to be disengaged completely. Another setting option
is the unlocking of the joint, which can be set to any extension stop angle. This allows
for physiotherapeutic training as well as installation of a dynamic unit.
