3 KX06 Features Polycentric Knee with CaTech Swing and Stance control Geometry and path of instantaneous centre of rotation means that the transition from extension into flexion requires less initiation loadMax weight 145Kg K1-K3 136Kg K1-K4
4 KX06 Benefits Security of 4 bar at heel strike Ability to yield down slopesHigh weight limitGood sitting cosmesis
5 KX06 Benefits contd.Improved gait because of smoothness of transition stance-swingGreater range of amputees can be fitted because of high weight limitKnee for the highly active!!
9 KX06 Alignment Recommendations S&S align Thro’ to slightly behind (up to 10mm) anterior upper pivot.S unit align through to 5mm anterior to front upper pivot
10 KX06 Alignment Recommendations 22mm attachment point to centre of top upper axisS&S socket will be positioned posteriorly relative to ant. upper axisS unit socket will be positioned anteriorly relative to ant.upper axis
11 Attachment options (proximal) Single bolt allows angular alignment adjustments (no slide)4Bolt Pyramid etc.Sliding pyramid is good option (EP-FSR CaTech rotating sliding female pyr adapt & EP-MSR CaTech sliding male pyr adapt)
17 Cosmetic FinishingExpect that most users will refrain from using a cosmesisThose who wish it may use a standard low density foam (561021, 22, 23)
18 Cylinder RemovalGrip rear links lightly in a vice with soft jaws (or clamp block available from Blatchford, Pt No )Undo both pivot pin screws (T )Remove grub screw (2.5mm)
19 Cylinder RemovalRemove top pivot pin sufficiently to release trunnion using alignment pinClamp body at distal end in a vice as shown using soft jaws or clamp block and remove distal pivots using a 5mm Allen key.Slide dummy pin sufficiently to remove cylinderDo not lose spacers
20 Cylinder ReplacementSecure unit in vice (otherwise difficult to get Pivot pin in)Lubricate Pivot Pin (STP)Screw suitable 6mm screw into Pivot Pin to aid in re insertion (interference fit, will not push in)Tap gently into position (sits just below bearing surface on each face)
21 Cylinder ReplacementReplace Torx screw (Loctite first) Tighten until Pivot Pin shaft rotates to position “flat” adjacent to grub screw: View thro’ grub screw hole in top trunnionAdd loctite to grubscrew and replace.Tighten gently against flat and tighten Torx screw to 5Nm
22 Cylinder ReplacementLoctite and torque (5Nm) second Torx screw to upper Pivot PinTighten grub screw fully. Do not over tighten!Reposition knee unit in viceLoctite and refit Lower Pivot Pins (Do not forget spacers)Torque to10 Nm
