Nexgear Tango ankle joint

If you have paralysis of the leg muscles, this dynamic ankle joint for ankle-foot orthoses allows you to walk more smoothly and efficiently – whether on level surfaces, on inclines or on stairs.

Walk more smoothly thanks to the reaction module

The Reaction-module offers a high level of energy return with the greatest possible freedom of movement in the ankle and allows you to walk more smoothly and safely.

It can be equipped with a choice of different spring strengths (strong or extra strong) depending on your requirements.

More flexibility thanks to the modular design

The Tango ankle joint offers three different function modules: the Stop-module, Spring-module and Reaction-module. These modules make it possible to adapt the Nexgear Tango to your individual needs at any time.

Benefits at a glance

Nexgear – supports and mobilises

Individually adaptable thanks to exchangeable function modules
Individual adaptation possible at any time

The function and design of the ankle joint can be adapted at any time with its three exchangeable modules. This means you can use the joint throughout the entire rehabilitation process, even as your needs change.

Quick module and spring selection
Quick selection of the right module

The Tango Fit Kit makes it quick and simple to select the module and springs. During the fitting process, your orthotist can test all three modules and springs on you in order to find the most appropriate setting and alignment.

Dynamic alignment of the Nexgear Tango
Separate static and dynamic alignment

First the static alignment is adjusted. Then the dynamic adjustment (spring pretension) of the reaction springs is set. The static alignment therefore has no influence on the dynamic setting.

Low weight thanks to titanium
Lightweight titanium construction

The titanium version of the Tango joint reduces the weight of the orthosis, making it pleasant to wear.

Walk more safely again with the reaction module of the Nexgear Tango
Walk more smoothly with the Tango

The reaction module allows you to walk more smoothly and efficiently. The individually required energy return can be optimised thanks to the various springs. Your orthotist will choose the corresponding spring for you.
