Design

Medical benefit


Distinctly increased unloading

The in its technical design unique ORTHOSCOOT NH1 is a good alternative to traditional walking aids for patients that are during the period prior or after their surgery not allowed to bear any or just limited weight on foot or ankle. For all persons (up to 120 kg) with chronic or temporary limitation on foot, ankle or distal lower leg the ORTHOSCOOT NH1 offers an almost unlimited mobility while simultaneously unloading the injured extremity. Just ask your attending physician about it.

 

Optimized storage of the affected extremity

Especially during the acute period after surgery it is important to keep the foot as calm as possible and to store it elevated if applicable. But this is not as easy as it might sound! Especially as wrong storage or bearing too much weight can cause additional appointments with doctors, revision surgeries or longer unemployability. By storing the diseased foot on the ergonomic NH1 kneepad, excessive swelling of leg and foot are prevented.

 

More mobility and vitality

With the unique ORTHOSCOOT NH1 the patient is active and motoring the device by pushing himself with the healthy leg. Doing so actively helps to prevent from atrophy of muscle during the period after surgery. Additionally the user keeps his action radius almost at the same level as it would be if he was not injured. This counts for patients movement inside as well as outside without the help of others. The compact design makes it even easier to pass narrow doors as well as pavements.

 

NH1 kneepad

The NH1´s kneepad is the most important interface between patient and device. Priority is to store the injured extremity smooth and stable. Through the ergonomic storage of the lower leg on the NH1 kneepad a mobilization of the patient while simultaneous unloading of the extremity becomes possible.
