Selecting the Ideal Brace Hinge

Starting your recovery journey means making informed choices, and picking the right hinged brace is key. We've put together a guide to make finding the perfect brace hinge easy and clear, so you can move forward with confidence.

We proudly offer five distinct hinge types, each engineered to meet various needs: the PC, NOS, HT, MP,and DLROM. While each hinge carries unique benefits and applications, they all share a common goal - to facilitate a comfortable and expedited healing process. Explore the essential features and benefits that each hinge brings to the table, as we delve deeper into detailed insights in the following sections, empowering you to make a choice that resonates with your recovery journey.

Polycentric Hinge (PC)

Our advanced polycentric hinge is designed with sturdy support arms, connected through pivot pins to a central hinge plate, allowing for fluid and precise motion. Tailored to each user's mobility needs, the arms can be set to preferred extension and flexion angles. The hinge plate features various slots to firmly fix limit pins in place, which can be adjusted to fine-tune the brace's range of motion control.

Multi-Positional Hinge (MP)

Our multi-positional hinge features a sophisticated design with rotating arms connected to inner and outer guide plates for pivotal movement. These plates contain specially curved slots that allow controlled sliding of pins located at the ends of the arms. Adjustments can be made by loosening set screws, enabling the arms to move and alter the joint angle. This system allows for precise angulation settings, which are securely locked in place using a combination of flat-screws and set screws.

Flip-Top Polycentric Hinge (HT)

For smooth and controlled movement, our flip-top polycentric hinge features robust support arms connected to a hinge plate via pivot pins. The arms can be adjusted to particular extension and flexion positions to suit the individual's unique range of motion. Limit pins are safely held in place by a hinge plate with several apertures, and they can be adjusted for the best movement restriction. A flip-top lid ensures their settings remain intact, improving both safety and comfort.

Exposed Aluminum Polycentric Hinges (NOS)

Exposed aluminum polycentric hinges are integral to high-performance orthopedic braces, offering enhanced mobility and anatomically accurate support. Crafted from lightweight and durable aluminum, these hinges are designed to mimic the complex motion of joints, such as the knee, ensuring a comfortable fit and natural movement. Their exposed design allows for easy adjustment, ensuring a personalized fit for patients. Ideal for those recovering from injury or surgery, these hinges provide the necessary stability while promoting an active lifestyle.

Polycentric (PC) Hinge Braces

Our advanced polycentric hinge, featuring sturdy support arms linked to a central hinge plate via pivot pins for fluid motion, is customizable to individual mobility needs by adjusting arm angles and limit pins in the hinge plate's slots for precise motion control.
