A miniature hydraulic system with terminal damping makes dynamic adaptation to changing walking speeds possible. Extension and flexion damping are individually adjustable to the mobility of young users.
A rotation unit integrated in the lower joint section permits rotation of the prosthetic foot with automatic return upon load relief. Combined with the large flexion angle of approx. 165°, this enables a comfortable 'kneeling position' as well as crouching with the foot rotated to the outside.
- Individually adjustable knee safety thanks to adjustable stop
- Individually adjustable extension assist mechanism to control the swing phase
- Not suitable for hip disarticulate fittings

Selecting the appropriate prosthetic knee unit for the transfemoral amputee (above knee) is important to achieve a successful outcome and should be based on the person’s activity level, lifestyle and general health. The latest advanced knee is not necessarily the best choice for everyone. Safety and stability for some amputees are more important than functional performance. More active amputees prefer a knee that will give them a higher level of function even if it requires greater control.
