Title (EN) ORTHOPEDIC BRACE SUSPENSION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE SUSPENSION D'UNE GENOUILLERE ORTHOPEDIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Provided are apparatus and methods of securing an orthopedic brace (92) on a wearer such that the brace is unlikely to migrate. In preferred embodiments, the apparatus includes a band (94) that extends entirely around the wearer, making contact with the entire circumference of the wearer. In certain embodiments, a strap (34) secured to the brace threads through loops on the band, thereby operably connecting the brace and the band. In certain other embodiments, the apparatus further includes a belt (56) that overlaps the band. Suspenders (58) operably connect the brace to the band/belt. Because the band makes contact with the entire circumference of the wearer, the apparatus comfortably secures the brace to the wearer while effectively preventing migration of the brace and without hindering the intended function of the brace.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un appareil et un procédé de fixation d'une genouillère orthopédique (92) sur un membre de manière à en interdire la migration. Dans l'exécution préférée l'appareil comporte une bande (94) entourant entièrement le membre et en contact avec la totalité de sa circonférence. Dans certaines exécutions, une sangle (34) solidaire de la genouillère passe dans des boucles solidaires de la bande de manière à les solidariser. Dans d'autres exécutions, l'appareil comporte en outre une ceinture (56) recouvrant la bande. Des jarretelles (58) relient la genouillère à la bande/ceinture. Comme la bande entoure entièrement le membre, l'appareil assure une fixation confortable de la genouillère, tout en en évitant efficacement la migration, et cela sans s'opposer à la fonction prévue de la genouillère.
