- Can be used as a unilateral joint or with medial support
Thanks to an ingenious combination of electronics and mechanical components, the E-MAG Control offers your patients a decisively higher level of security during everyday use. Your customer can use the electronic control system – even in cases of restricted mobility or dependence on crutches – to unlock the orthosis knee joint with a wireless remote control. The remote control can be integrated into a standard hand pad or also into a forearm crutch, allowing your customer to support him or herself with both arms at all times. Please note that only a certain type of crutch can be used. Installation is simple and can be done without tools.
Feedback function for more security
Feedback functions have been integrated into the E-MAG's electronics to ensure maximum security when locking and unlocking the orthotic joint during daily and recreational activities. These functions let you know which mode the joint is in via customizable signals. For example, when the patient stands up, the system informs the patient that the joint is in a locked, stable position. As a result, the patient can rely on the orthosis with full confidence.
The joint unit has also been designed so that all its mechanical parts are protected from outside disturbances. Unlike conventional locks, the E-MAG Control's lock is fully enclosed and is not affected by bumps, dirt or clothing. As a result, your patients will stay safe and secure everywhere they go, even in cramped indoor spaces, and will no longer have to wear a joint protector.
A Complete System
The E-MAG Control joint system is supplied as a complete system in a case. You can order the optional medial support joint, splints, or crutch as special accessories. The case contains the entire matched system including a charger, a battery, and the required fabrication dummies for installation in an orthosis.
Indication and Application
The E-MAG Control is for patients with post-traumatic conditions such as poliomyelitis, post polio syndrome, failure or weakness of knee extensors. The E-MAG is contraindicated in the presence of a knee flexion contraction which prevents the patient from extending the E-MAG Control joint in order to activate the lock. The patient must be able to extend the knee joint either while standing, with the help of a forefoot lever by means of a specific dorsal stop (which can be achieved using an adjustable ankle joint) or with forefoot support provided by a firm, long sole.
The E-MAG Control can be used as a unilateral joint (17B200) for a weight of up to 55 kilograms / 121 pounds. Above that weight, the joint has to be equipped with a medial support 17B205 which is suitable for a weight of up to 85 kilograms / 187 pounds.
