Pentagon Knee Orthosis

The Pentagon Knee Orthosis from Anatomical Concepts is a posterior fitting, single upright, five-function knee orthosis that provides the orthopedic/rehabilitation team with a patient-friendly alternative to the traditional bulky double upright hinged knee device configuration. This system allows the calf and thigh segments to dynamically shorten and lengthen with the patient’s extremity during flexion and extension of the knee. Compensation for this shortening and lengthening occurs through the use of a free-motion cam that is incorporated into the thigh and calf cuffs. The orthosis is available in Adult #1150 and Pediatric #1050 sizes.
