Becker Introduces the SafetyStride
September 01, 2007
The SafetyStrideTM is a mechanical stance control orthotic knee joint that utilizes a low-profile cabling system to automatically unlock itself at the end of stance phase. The key feature of the SafetyStride is its ability to resist knee flexion at any angle. The SafetyStride doesnt require full 180-degree knee extension to resist knee flexion in stance phase. Designed to unlock at terminal stance, an internal lever re-engages during swing phase to ensure knee joint stability prior to heel contact. Individuals who intermittently fail to reach full extension will now have added security and stability.
