The ideal joint for the interim phase! It has a high load capacity, and is both compact and lightweight. The SL2 combines two typical joint construction methods within one joint: “manual lock” and “with braking unit”. Depending on the amputee’s progress the joint can be adapted to the user’s increasing activity level.
The manual lock activates in extension, and can be unlocked with an actuator cable that is attached on both sides of the joint. The manual lock can be deactivated either temporarily or permanently. The braking unit operates load-dependently and can be adjusted to the user’s weight continuously.
