Becker Oregon Offers Modular Laminated Lower-Limb Orthoses
August 01, 2009
A new, modern design approach inspired Becker Oregon to combine the conveniences of a modular system with the rigidity and lightweight characteristics of composites to create a laminated system that is user-friendly to the practitioner.
Components can be easily detached from the orthosis and adjusted for ease of fitting, adjustment, and replacement. The laminated section of the orthosis are now fabricated around the metal components and attached with screws.
This cosmetically appealing orthosis system has a streamlined design and is lightweight. The typical KAFO weighs only 2.6 lb.
