The Pentagon™ is a posterior fitting, single-upright, five-function knee orthoses that provides the orthopedic/rehabilitation team with a patient-friendly alternative to the traditional bulky double-upright hinged-knee configuration. It is the only system that allows the calf and thigh segments to dynamically shorten and lengthen with the patient’s extremity during flexion and extension of the knee. Compensation for this shortening and lengthening is through the use of a free-motion cam that is incorporated into the thigh and calf cuffs. It is available in adult #1150 and pediatric #1050 sizes.
