New LTI Locking Shoulder Joint is Stronger, More Wear-Resistant
August 01, 2006
The new LTI Locking Shoulder Joint has been redesigned to provide greater locking strength and more wear resistance. Made from high-strength aerospace alloys, the joint is durable and lightweight (172gm). The shoulder swings in a natural arc during gait, but can be locked in 36 positions, or every 10°. Abduction/adduction is achieved through a second hinge with adjustable friction. The user can free the joint manually or by using the optional nudge control or remote release lever. The LTI Locking Shoulder Joint is usable in both endo- and exoskeletal prosthetic systems. L-Codes were approved for this joint in January 2003.
