Orthotic Knee Joint – Strikingly beautiful or invisible?


Baat Engineering has developed a knee orthosis technology that is used in a leg orthosis for people with progressive muscle disease. A good design is fitting here.


The ingenuity of the hinge system that enables natural walking behavior is designed in such a way that it gives the user the option of wearing the orthosis in a visible or invisible manner.

The design of the orthosis is so flat and curved that it closely fits the body, whereby it is barely visible when wearing long pants.

The biomechanical design also provides an attractive object that exhibits quality and guts, should the user decide to wear a pair of shorts.
