single knee joint options

Clinical Orthotic Consultants


We have a 400lb patient that requires a knee orthosis to control varus

In the past, my go-to joint would have been the Niagara Knee Joint, but it
is no longer being fabricated.

I would like to use a single, lateral knee joint on this patient as a medial
joint will just cause issues with rubbing on the contralateral leg. What is
your option for the biggest, heavy duty joint for this scenario?

Thank you
