Microprocessor Controlled Knees
Genium Knee Microprocessor Controlled Knee
Ottobock opened up entirely new horizons for prosthesis wearers: an unprecedented, natural gait pattern, taking stairs step-over-step, overcoming obstacles, walking backwards, relaxed standing – to name just a few examples. For the first time, people with a transfemoral amputation experienced a range of new functions that provided perfect support for their desire to live a more active and independent everyday life. The benefits of being fitted with a Genium have been scientifically proven in multiple studies.*
Based on human movement as the model, the Genium has been developed even further. The result is a noticeably smoother gait and even better support and safety in everyday situations, for instance on ramps, in confined spaces or when changing walking speeds.
