November 01, 2002
Otto Bock Health Care, Minneapolis, Minnesota, announces the Delta Twist", the latest improvement in prosthetic shock and torque absorption.
The Delta Twist is the only product to offer independent control of internal and external rotational motion in combination with vertical shock absorption, providing an easily interchangeable system of elastomer inserts to customize the product to fit the wearer's needs.
"We're excited to offer this unique, new product to our customers," said Peter Nohre, prosthetic market manager. "The system offers the flexibility to provide softer internal rotation during early stance phase combined with a firmer, more gradual external rotation towards toe-off. The result is a more natural gait with less compensatory movements and stress on the residual limbthe best of both worlds."
