ERGODYNAMIC

Ergodynamic is an FDI innovation with a shock absorber incorporated into the forearm crutch. It absorbs shock at impact and the resulting rebound effect prevents injuries in the joints (wrist elbow and shoulder).

Available in 3 sizes to fit all morphology and features.

Quality

OUR APPROACH

We submit our products to the CERAH (Centre d’Etudes et de Recherche sur l’Appareillage des Handicapés), accredited COFRAC (Comité Français d’Accréditation) to undergo a complete set of tests to guarantee the quality and safety of our products .

Following these experiments, none of the components used exhibit any permanent deformation or breakage.

Each model is the subject of a patent lodged at the INPI and are in full compliance with EN ISO 11334-1.

01. FATIGUE TEST

A loading force of 130 kg corresponding to the max user weight is applied one million times via a dummy arm to the fully-extended crutch.

02. LOW TEMPERATURE FALLING TEST

FDI elbow crutch is placed for 24 hours at -25 °C in the aim of weakening the structure.

Within 30 seconds of being removed from the cold environment, the elbow crutch undergoes a series of falls which must not reveal any cracks or fractures.

03. STATIC LOADING TEST

Our elbow crutches must withstand 130 kilos of static load without weakening. To be validated, a loading force is applied via a dummy arm to the fully extended crutch and methodically reproduces a rise in weight to 1300 newtons for 10 seconds. 

04. SEPERATION TEST

A pulling force of 500 newtons is applied for 10 seconds time to the upper and lower parts of the crutch.

None of its components must disassociate.
