Above the Knee Prosthetics

Teaming with innovative component manufacturers, we stay on the leading edge of technology, offering specialized products and services for all activities and functional levels. We are frequently called upon for product testing and development and are proud to partner with our suppliers to continue to develop creative solutions for individual needs.

Balance™ Knee

The Balance™ Knee by Össur®  is designed to offer the less active user a high level of security and stability. Its four-bar geometric design is easily adjusted to optimize the required balance between stability and walking dynamics for each individual. It also facilitates an easy kneeling action. Mid-swing shortening allows the prosthesis to swing more easily through each step and helps prevent hip hiking.

Balance Knee is a high quality multi-axial prosthetic knee that offers an excellent stability adjustment to optimize the balance between knee stability and dynamic behavior for each user. This short video presents how easy it is for practitioners to set up and adjust the knee to each individual user's cadence.


Balance™ Knee Control

Balance™ Knee Control by Össur® is designed to offer a high level of stability for low active users, who typically use walking aids. It is intended to facilitate single-speed walking on level ground and gentle slopes, allowing the user to negotiate stairs* and small obstacles, as well as sit and/or kneel.

Total Knee®

The industry standard in polycentric knees, Össur®'s Total Knee®, has been redesigned and given a whole new look. Now the knee is stronger and more durable. This is the go-to knee for superior shock absorption, increased comfort and a more natural gait. Mid-swing shortening offers increased toe clearance during swing to prevent hip-hiking and the 3-phase hydraulic swing control accommodates changes in walking speed. Plus, the adjustable stance flexion feature mimics the knee flexion that occurs during early stance, reducing shock and stress on the residual limb.

The Total Knee 2100 is a highly refined polycentric knee with 3-phase hydraulic swing control designed to withstand the rigors of more active amputees. With a weight limit of 125kg (275lbs) and 25% increased fluid capacity over Model 2000, the Total Knee 2100 offers the ultimate in stability, control, efficiency and durability.


RHEO KNEE®

Össur®'s  RHEO KNEE®  3 provides the most natural knee function among all microprocessor knees because it continuously adapts to the user and the environment while providing perfect balance of stability and dynamics.

  • Effortless swing initiation enables a smoother gait, even in crowds and confined spaces
  • Advanced actuator and resistance control ensure best possible resistance, e.g. more support in stair descent and minimum effort needed in level ground gait
  • Constant power spring provides natural progression in swing
  • Five-sensor gait detection, including new gyroscope technology, ensures stability and dynamic response in every situation
  • Magnetorheologic technology enables an instant response so that users never have to wait for the knee to catch up with them

In the 10 years since the original RHEO KNEE made its debut, we've learned that the needs of low active users and more active users differ. Whereas low K3 users place a premium on stance stability, high K3 users desire a more responsive knee for a dynamic walking experience.


POWER KNEE™

Össur®'s POWER KNEE™, the only motor powered knee joint, provides active motion and superior powered stance stability to replace lost muscle function, enabling users to go further.

POWER KNEE provides active motion and superior powered stance stability to replace lost muscle function, enabling users to go further. Delivering powered extension when standing up, controlled resistance when descending, and active flexion and extension during walking, POWER KNEE facilitates symmetrical weight distribution and natural gait.

High active users, as well as users with higher functional loss, testify that POWER KNEE restores their endurance, allowing them to go farther. POWER KNEE has been demonstrated to significantly reduce rehabilitation time for new transfemoral amputees.

The PowerLogic Workbench software enables prosthetists and physical therapists to give patients visual feedback during training, as well as to log and report on user performance and prosthetic use, for better reimbursement documentation.

Allison Brown, mother of four and amputee since the age of 14, tells us how POWER KNEE has helped her in her daily life. POWER KNEE, the only motor powered knee joint, provides active motion and superior powered stance stability to replace lost muscle function, enabling users to go further and new amputees to rehabilitate faster.


Plié®

Stronger. Smarter. Submersible. Stronger construction makes the new Plié® 3 Microprocessor Controlled (MPC) Knee from Freedom Innovations both submersible and more rugged than ever. Yet, it’s still the fastest MPC knee, responding 10 to 20 times more rapidly than other MPC knees. With the most responsive stumble and fall protection, users can instinctively move at their own pace in any direction…even if it’s taking small short steps or pivoting in confined spaces.


C-Leg® 4

Ottobock®'s C-Leg® 4 continues the industry-leading tradition of improving outcomes for more than 60,000 fittings worldwide. With studies citing increased stability and reduced falls*, the C-Leg 4 is weatherproof, can be controlled with the Android Cockpit app, and makes walking backward easier. Whether on sidewalk steps or dodging subway crowds, the C-Leg 4 helps transform the way you walk.


Mauch® Knee

Össur®'s Mauch® Knee is capable of withstanding the most unpredictable conditions.

  • Single axis hydraulic knee system with swing and stance control (SNS®). Designed for multi-speed ambulation.
  • Durable and secure motion.
  • Ultra-durable Aluminum frame.
  • Weight limit of 136kg (300lbs).
  • Roller bearings at knee axis and cylinder attachment points for smooth action.
  • Yielding stance control.
  • Mode selector switch allows manual locking and free swing functions.
  • Smooth profile assists with cosmetic finishing.
  • Low Swing Resistance kits and High Stance Resistance kits are also available.
