College Park launched today the newly redesigned AXIS® shoulder joint. Formerly the LTI Locking Shoulder Joint, the patented design has a friction hinge for adjustable abduction friction and is operated with simple switches that eliminates the need for gross body movements through harnessing. The shoulder can operate as a free-swing joint and provides a 240 degree arc that mimics anatomical range of motion. The user can also manually lock the shoulder every 10 degrees for perfect positioning. The AXIS integrates with all upper limb control systems and has a special channel to conceal and protect power cables. It’s available in both an exo and endo version with several mounting options.
Unlike any product on the market, the AXIS provides better task control, a natural range of motion, and ease of use for the patient’s daily life.
