Monopivotal cast hinge

A monopivotal knee and elbow cast hinge that is ideal for cost-effective functional cast bracing, available with a range of motion settings of flexion and extension.

Mono-pivotal mechanism

DC Hinge uses a mono-pivotal mechanism and is available in a range-of-motion: 0, 15, 30, 60 and 90. This type of hinge works in the same way as the bi-pivotal hinge, except that the hinge joints on mono-pivotal hinges are not aligned in a parallel manner on either side of the knee. Instead, they work independently of each other.

A unique plastic "spider"

  • Engages each of the four ROM pins so that they cannot be dropped accidentally

Hinge protection plate

  • Prevents tampering of the hinge mechanism and provides added security

Splined head plates

  • Engage with the mesh of the cast material to ensure good fixation
