The angular-velocity-based SCO, termed the Ottawalk-Speed (OWS), was designed to have the entire device enclosed in a compact knee-joint unit and meet the following objectives: engage knee-flexion resistance at a predetermined knee-flexion angular velocity threshold, permit free knee motion when not engaged, provide adequate knee-flexion resistance using only a single device located on the lateral side with a standard single-axis joint on the medial side, allow easy integration with standard orthotic components, permit easy adjustment of the threshold angular velocity required for engagement, have minimal frontal-plane dimensions to maintain cosmesis, limit the likelihood of medial joint contact, and function quietly.
