BTK Knee in Colorado

Monday, January 9th, 2012

Brian Bartlett recently attended a disabled skiing sports clinic in Colorado, and set up new user who had never used the knee before. The new user is the skier in the images, as you can see the knee was a success! This knee will get you or your patient back up onto the slopes using both legs.  The knee requires less energy and gives back more dynamic response so you or your patient can enjoy more of the mountain and more varied terrain for longer periods of time!

Get out there!

Fabtech Systems is now exclusive distributor of the Bartlett Tendon Universal Knee System—the most natural and adaptable knee available in the O&P industry

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Fabtech Systems has now added the Bartlett Tendon Universal Knee (BTK) to its innovative line-up of O&P products. Fabtech Systems serves as master distributor as well as partial manufacturer (Fabtech’s Composite 1 adhesive and carbon “on-the-spot” connectors are used in the production process).

The BTK is the only knee of its kind in the O&P industry that can be used in virtually any physical activity—from extreme downhill skiing to riding bikes with the family to simple rehabilitative regimens.

Its creative design mimics the smooth, fluid motion of a natural knee by integrating the use of a proprietary soft and hard tendon system combined with the newest air/oil shock technology on the market.

Designed by professional downhill mountain biker and extreme sports enthusiast Brian Bartlett, the BTK has years of proven performance in the most demanding and extreme levels of use.

Experiencing a field amputation at the beginning of his semi-professional extreme skiing career, Bartlett refused to slow down. “I quickly realized in order to remain dynamic in my sport I also needed to be safe. But, at the time, there weren’t any prosthetic knees available that provided the unique amount of compression and fluid motion I was looking for. Those knees all had large coil spring designs that generated harsh, jerky mechanical performance.”

After years of R&D, tenacity and “outside-of-the-box” thinking, the BTK was developed.

The BTK’s unique design smoothes out the knee action as it bends and extends through its cycle. Its level of resistance can be “tuned” by switching the tendons in different configurations in combination with adjusting the shock settings and pressure.

A few physical activities (among a long list) that are well suited for the BTK: skiing, surfing, mountain biking, skate boarding, swimming, muscle building, promoting general fitness and increasing active, quality time with friends and family.
