AK Prosthesis— Above Knee Prosthesis

The intelligent knee joint continuously monitors which phase of the gait cycle the prosthesis wearer is in and adjusts in real time. This allows users to move about freely without having to concentrate on their steps all the time, for example when they are going downstairs, walking on challenging surfaces, or even moving backwards. On the new C-Leg, various mechanical and electronic adjustments provide improved swing phase control. As a result, the user of the prosthesis has a more natural gait and can move the knee joint more easily.

It is important to work with a prosthetist in your area when getting a device like the C-Leg. They will take a cast and measurements of your leg so that it will be customized to your dimensions. Getting the proper fit with any prosthesis is of utmost importance and these individuals can help you when you get this type of prosthesis.

Upper Extremity Prosthesis—Life-Like Hand Covering

Due to the technology used in the C-Leg, it will always recognize which phase of gait the user is currently in. This is very important because the prosthesis will be able to adjust itself in real time. Moreover, when an individual is sitting down in a chair, or they are walking on a surface that is uneven (such as an incline or decline slope, or set of stairs) the Mechatronic hydraulic stance phase safety system is always active.

C-Leg microprocessor-controlled knee joint | Ottobock AU

How exactly does the C-Leg work? The intelligent control function of the prosthesis adapts to the individual gait pattern of each user. The leg is operated by a microprocessor-controlled hydraulic unit that adjusts the system dynamically to any walking speed. At the same time, the controller ensures that the stance phase of the prosthesis is secure. The control mechanism is based on a complex system of sensors. These record the load on the knee joint every 0.02 seconds to accurately identify the phase of the gait cycle.
Two valves that are adjusted by maxon RE-max 13 motors modify the characteristics of the hydraulic system. Two motors are used in each C-Leg. The key features of these DC motors are their compact design and relatively high power output.

“I can't remember when I last stumbled. It's great!” says Geno from the US (on the left in the picture), enthusiastically describing his life with the C-Leg. The success story of the C-Leg goes on and on. More and more people are adopting this intelligent prosthetic leg to regain their independence.

How the C-Leg Works Ottobock ..

According to the National Limb Loss Information Center (NLLIC), approximately 130,000 people in the United States require an amputation each year. Although the majority of these procedures are lower limb amputations due to vascular diseases, amputations may also be needed to treat birth
defects, cancer, or severe injuries from accidents or military action. Many different types of prosthetic legs, which are classified based on the complexity of the artificial knee, have been developed to partially restore capacity to walk. The simplest type is the polycentric knee that the user swings during walking. Hydraulic knees are more complex and incorporate adjustable hydraulic pumps to improve the motion of walking. The third type of knee is the electronic knee, which combines microprocessor control with the mechanical and hydraulic elements in other types of prosthetic knees. Electronic knees provide the highest degree of function but require more maintenance due to their complexity.

Post amputation rehabilitation as well as post prosthetic rehabilitation is very important for you.
