E-MAG Active Electronic Long Walk Device
It is the newest long walking orthosis design developed by Otto Bock. The main difference is that it locks the knee joint at the moments of need for walking.
We lock our knee joint biomechanically at the moments when walking is transferred to the ground. The process that starts with the heel contacts continues until the toe comes off the ground. Conventional devices completely restrict the movement of the joints both in the stance phase and the swing phase (Swing Phase). The complete restriction of joint movements causes both irregularity and disruption in walking rhythm and extra energy consumption.
Emag Active, on the other hand, detects load transfers at any time of the walk thanks to the special sensors it contains. When we do not put weight on the leg, it opens the knee joint lock and allows movement, and when it weighs, it detects it and restricts the movement of the knee joint.
Dafo orthosis following the neutral axes of the foot due to the open back of the supra malleolar region allows plantar and dorsiflexion movements. The ankle, due to its 3 axes; with small amounts of adduction and inversion flexion, abduction and eversion movement is accompanied by dorsiflexion. These small amounts of inversion and eversion are closely related to the balance strategies in the hip, pelvis, and trunk.
