Title (EN) KNEE BRACE WITH A MECHANISM ENABLING CHANGING OF CUFF SHELLS
(FR) ATTELLE DE GENOU DOTÉE D'UN MÉCANISME PERMETTANT UN CHANGEMENT D'ENVELOPPES DE MANCHON
Abstract:
(EN) A knee brace with a connection mechanism that enables quick and easy secure attachment and detachment of a plastic cuff shell to struts of the brace without the need for separate fasteners and the tools required for them via the use of a novel snap connector which will connect by a simple plug in motion, and which is configured to firmly hold the connected strut and prevent it from rotating relative to the cuff shell once connected while also enabling a quick and easy tool-free disconnection of the strut for exchanging of one cuff for another. The thigh and tibia shells can be interchange without removing any screws, rivets or traditional connectors providing a modular construction with the ability to mix and match different size thigh and calf shells, making it possible for a customer to order the product in kit form, or as separate components thereby enabling easy customization.
(FR) L'invention concerne une attelle de genou dotée d'un mécanisme de liaison qui permet d'assurer la fixation et la séparation rapides et faciles d'une enveloppe de manchon en plastique aux entretoises de l'attelle sans utiliser d'attaches séparées ni les outils nécessaires pour celles-ci en utilisant un nouveau raccord encliquetable qui est relié par un simple mouvement d'enfichage, et qui est configuré pour maintenir fermement l'entretoise reliée et l'empêcher de tourner par rapport à l'enveloppe de manchon une fois reliée, tout en permettant une séparation rapide et facile sans outil de l'entretoise pour remplacer un manchon par un autre. Les enveloppes de cuisse et de tibia peuvent être échangées sans enlever aucun rivet, vis ou raccord classique, ce qui permet de produire une structure modulaire ayant la capacité de combiner des enveloppes de cuisse et de mollet de différentes tailles, ce qui permet à un client de commander le produit sous forme de kit ou d'éléments séparés, permettant ainsi une personnalisation aisée.
