Title: HINGE FOR AN ORTHOPEDIC DEVICE
Abstract:
A hinge (100) includes an upper hinge component (110) and a lower hinge component (112). A cover plate (102) is pivotally connected at first location point (114) to the upper hinge component (110) and at a second location point (116) to the lower hinge component (112). First and second plates (106, 108) are pivotally connected at a third location point (126) to the upper hinge component (110) and at a fourth location point (128) to the lower hinge component (112). The first plate (106) is positioned between the cover plate (102) and the upper and lower hinge components (110, 112). The upper and lower hinge components (110, 112) are positioned between the first and second plates (106, 108). The cover plate (102) is mounted on an outer side (O) of the hinge (100) and the connection of the cover plate (102) at the first location point (114) rotates around the third location point (126) and the connection of the cover plate (102) at the second location point (116) rotates around the fourth location point (128).
