SOMAS Co. have adopted our NT Super-elastic springs for their "Carp-X" device. Design and engineering has been completed by BAAT Eng..
"Carp-X" is a device which brings movement to the treatment of epicondylitis lateralis (tennis elbow). The Carp-X ensures rapid and effective recovery from epicondylitis lateralis. The orthosis provides continuous resistance to the palm of the hand and brings the hand back in a 30° extension with every movement. Our SMA NT, which provides the orthosis with sufficient resistance and dynamics, is used to make this possible.
Our NT Super-elastic springs make it possible to bend the springs along the entire range of wrist flexion. These can undergo severe distortion with only a slight increase in stress. This enables strong and constant support during the entire bending process, without lasting deformation or fracture.
