Product Description

Pivot is an articulated, self-aligning, low profile AFO hinge. It’s unique design allows it to be fabricated in exactly the same manner as the typical flexure joint, no alignment jig is needed.

Pivot’s medical grade stainless steel construction allows it to be the lowest profile joint currently available.

One of the secrets to Pivot’s low profile is the use of stainless steel fastening nuts that pass through the hinge plates and extend beyond them. This extension is encapsulated within the thickness of the AFOs plastic and allows for maximum thread engagement without adding to the overall projection.

Because the fastening nuts are constructed with two flats that engage with matching flats in the hinge plates, they will not rotate during assembly or removal. The stainless steel construction of both screws and nuts resists cross threading and will not strip.

Pivot provides the mechanism of movement that gives you an opportunity to control sagittal plane motion without the bulk of traditional urethane hinge bodies or double action ankle joints.

The end result is an elegant and attractive AFO (that fits in a shoe) and a functionally engineered Pivot!

Consider using LaunchPad’s trio of innovations; Pivot, Snapstop and X-tension, to optimize outcomes for your patients!
