Nexgear Tango double action ankle joint

High energy return, large range of motion

The new Nexgear premium system joint line, which can be used for paralysis and partial paralysis of the lower limb, creates new fitting options for AFOs and KAFOs. The Tango ankle joint is the first product of the line. The functional modules make it possible to adapt the function and design to the individual needs of the user and they can be upgraded or downgraded at any time. This allows the joint to be flexibly adapted, for example during rehabilitation. The key feature is the reaction module, which dynamically controls and supports dorsiflexion and plantar flexion of the foot and influences the knee in the stance phase ‒ different reaction springs are available for this. This means that the necessary energy return can be optimised individually for a significantly more dynamic gait. In addition, Tango ensures a large range of motion in the ankle, even with high spring force.
