Through Hip Prosthetics
7E10 Helix3D Hip Joint System
Through Hip Prosthetics is provided with Otto Bocks' Hip Joint System. The hip joint's three-dimensional movement contributes to a more natural gait cycle for the patient.
The Helix3D Hip Joint System is suitable for hip disarticulation and hemipelvectomy patients. It offers patients maximum security and function for a wide range of everyday activities. It allows for leg length reduction during the swing phase which helps reduce the risk of falling and increases security. It also improves sitting posture and reduces pelvic obliquity to a minimum.
Overview of the Product
The Helix3D Hip Joint System produces a three-dimensional hip movement to compensate for pelvic rotation and promotes a symmetrical and natural gait pattern.
It allows for leg length reduction during the swing phase, which helps reduce the risk of falling and increases security.
It improves the sitting posture and reduces pelvic obliquity to a minimum.
The 7E10's large flexion angle makes it easier to accomplish daily living activities, such as putting on shoes or getting into a car.
It is easier to initiate swing phase with the hip joint's integrated expansion springs. Energy stored during the stance phase is used during the swing phase initiation to compensate for the missing hip muscles and to reduce the amount of energy needed for walking.
Controls the three-dimensional movement of the hip joint during walking that closely resembles the normal hip movement in the sound leg.
Allows for a dampened, controlled heel strike in the stance phase with significantly reduced hyperlordosis as well as a natural hip joint extension. The patient can accomplish a more controlled, smooth roll-over on the prosthesis under full load. It allows for an individual stride length setting, which controls the pendulum motion in the swing phase.
