Panther APL 639

An “Orthosis for Orthotists”

PDAC Approved

  • L0639 Custom Fit
  • L0651 Off the Shelf (OTS)

The Panther APL 639 is like the Panther SL 637, but with a vertically adjustable xiphoid plate and longer lateral control panels.

The Panther APL 639 is a true “orthosis for orthotists.” To bend the xiphoid bar or to re-contour a plastic plate, the fitter must use bending irons or a heat gun, and the use of either tool during fitting renders the Panther APL 639 a Custom Fit (CF) brace.

The universal Panther APL 639 belt is easy to size. No tools needed. No need to cut or fold a belt. Just add or remove belt segments.

The string-and-pulley compression system allows the Panther APL belt to be easily snugged, even by elderly arthritic hands.
