Title
(EN) RANGE-OF-MOTION ANKLE SPLINT
(FR) ORTHESE POUR L'AUGMENTATION DE L'AMPLITUDE ARTICULAIRE DE LA CHEVILLE
Abstract
(EN)
A range-of-motion splint (10) for applying torque to an ankle joint of a patient is disclosed. The splint includes a foot plate (48) for supporting the foot of a patient. First and second foot brackets (36 and 42) are connected to the foot plate (48) via first and second fastening means (39 and 45), respectively. First and second pivot means (74) pivotally connect a first and a second ankle bracket (18 and 24) to the first and second foot brackets (36 and 42), respectively. First and second torque applying means are connected to the first and second foot brackets (36 and 42) and the first and second ankle brackets (18 and 24), respectively. The first torque applying means applies torque between the first foot bracket (36) and the first ankle bracket (18), while the second torque applying means supplies torque between the second foot bracket (42) and the second ankle bracket (24). Calf securing means (16) are connected to the first and second ankle brackets (18 and 24) for securing the first and second ankle brackets (18 and 24) to a calf of the patient. A plurality of ankle straps (104, 106 and 108) are connected to the first and second pivot means (74) for securing the first and second foot brackets (36 and 42) and the first and second ankle brackets (18 and 24) to an ankle of the patient.

Orthèse (10) servant à soumettre l'articulation de la cheville d'un patient à un couple de torsion afin d'en augmenter l'amplitude articulaire. Cette orthèse comprend un repose-pied (48) sur lequel repose le pied du patient. Une première et une seconde lame latérale (36, 42) pour le pied sont reliées au repose-pied (48) respectivement par un premier et un second organe de fixation (39, 45). Un premier et un second organe de pivotement (74) relient à pivotement une première et une seconde lame latérale (18, 24) pour la cheville respectivement aux première et seconde lames latérales (36, 42) pour le pied. Un premier et un second organe d'application de couple sont reliés respectivement aux première et seconde lames latérales (36, 42) pour le pied et aux première et seconde lames latérales (18, 24) pour la cheville. Le premier organe applique un couple entre la première lame latérale (36) du pied et la première lame latérale (18) de la cheville, tandis que le second l'applique entre la seconde lame latérale (42) du pied et la seconde lame latérale (24) de la cheville. Des moyens (16) de fixation surale sont reliés aux première et seconde lames latérales (18, 24) de la cheville et fixent celles-ci au mollet du patient. Plusieurs sangles de cheville (104, 106, 108) sont reliées aux premier et second organes de pivotement (74) pour fixer à la cheville du patient les première et seconde lames latérales (36, 42) du pied et les première et seconde lames latérales (18, 24) de la cheville.
