College Park Industries launches the K2 Guardian friction-brake knee, a lightweight mechanical knee joint featuring a friction brake for stance control, stance flexion, and extension assist. The knee is best suited as a rehabilitation tool for new patients to learn standing and walking during the rehabilitation process, and as a permanent knee for low-impact patients. The unit provides the prosthetist easy adjustability for patient gait-matching, without the need to remove the prosthesis. The Guardian also has a remote lock feature that can be disengaged as the patient progresses to provide the full 145° of anatomical motion. This product is the first in a series of new knee offerings from College Park; a hydraulic and pneumatic knee will follow.
