Abstract:

The unit contained a friction adjustment for varying torque in the extension-flexion direction, and a free-swing feature in the adduction-abduction direction. The evaluation consisted of cycling the pulley system, and determining the ability of the unit to sustain and retain torque. The fitting procedures described are applicable to fitting a fore quarter type amputee. Field tests were recommended for this device. Author
