The UTX STABIL is a lightweight long leg brace (also called KAFO, orthosis, or split) that gives the leg maximum stability. The knee is stabilized throughout the entire
walking cycle. For the ankle there are several choices to achieve the stability that is needed or just to allow the freedom to do that.
Smart manual unlocking
The knee joint can be manually unlocked to allow seating. To this end, a smart lock system was made at the top of the orthosis. At Ambroise we do not find it logical to put the light button next to the lamp on the ceiling so that you can not reach it. The same applies to the unlocking of the knee joint of a leg orthosis. We do not think it’s logical to put it on the knee hinge (as with many conventional systems) so you have to bend a lot to reach it. That’s why the UTX is just on top of the orthosis, which makes it easy for you to reach, even through your clothes.
