Free Walk Orthotic System


Walk smoothly and stand securely with the Free Walk Orthosis System. The special Otto Bock orthosis system locks the knee joint during the stance phase and becomes released during the swing phase. This allows patients to bend their leg, thus requiring less energy when walking. The light and stable Free Walk orthosis also lightens the load on the back, hips and knee joint through its mode of operation. It can be easily put on and off. Thus, the Free Walk ensures the patients individual security, stability, and above all mobility. The Free Walk orthosis was developed for patients who, due to a partial paralysis or a complete failure of the knee extensors, are unable to stabilize their knee without compensatory measures. For example, knee joints are often stabilized through hyperextension achieved by compensatory movement of the gluteal muscles (e.g. when the foot touches the ground, the hip extension leads to a knee extension). As a result, severe ligament instabilities and arthrotic symptoms in the knee joint will develop over time. The Free Walk orthosis helps correct these unphysiological movements, allowing patients to regain a natural gait as much as possible.

Benets
Smooth gait pattern Secure standing Customized Easy to apply Light, narrow and stable Cosmetically appealing High comfort

Requirements for tting


Muscle strength of the hip or knee extensors (muscle status) of 3 to 5 or knee hyperextension (Genu recurvatum) Dorsal ankle mobility of at least 10 Knee flexion contracture of a maximum 10 Valgus or varus deviation in the knee joint of a max. 10 No uncontrollable spasms

Indications
Paresis or paralysis of the lower extremities

Selection Criteria Functional Principle


Security in the stance phase: The orthotic joint automatically locks when the knee is extended before the heel strike. The patient stands securely and the leg can bear weight during the stance phase. The Free Walk fulfills the functions of a locked orthosis. Disengagement in the swing phase: The patient disengages the orthotic knee joint by completely extending the knee before the toe off, thus permitting a dorsal flexion of the ankle joint. Then the Patient can bend his leg and swing through freely. One of the following requirements must be met: Muscle strength of the hip extensors 3 to 5 or Muscle strength of the knee extensors 3 to 5 or Knee hyperextension
At the present time, the patient does not possess enough muscle strength. In the course of rehabilitation, it can be expected that sufficient muscle strength will be developed

Knee stability in the frontal plane Yes No

Knee stability in the frontal plane Yes

Fitting with Free Walk is not possible at the present time.


By removing the steel cable, the Free Walk is turned into a locked orthosis. When the patient has enough muscle strength, this can be easily turned into a Free Walk again.
