Pediatric Ankle Joint

Product Information

The Pediatric Triple Action® Stance/Swing Control Ankle Joint was developed by Becker Orthopedic to provide control of the lower limb through all phases of the gait cycle. The component is small, lightweight and durable. It may be used unilaterally when paired with a free motion companion joint, or in a double upright thermoplastic orthotic design for larger or high tone patients.

This advanced ankle joint has been engineered to keep pace with active patients, improving performance and reducing component maintenance. The included standard and high resistance spring options will suit a broad range of patient management applications. With installation of the optional Booster Spring Staged Resist Adapter, the component’s applications are further extended.

The pediatric Triple Action® was developed it these challenging orthotic applications in mind. Use the Triple action for orthotic designs where patients may benefit from precise tuning of ankle and knee support for each unique phase of the gait cycle. The patent pending alignment feature can be used to tune shank to vertical angle or to accommodate a change in the patient’s condition and/or heel height. With the resist settings locked, the component alignment feature may also be used for static progressive contracture management over a 20° adjustment range.
