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.

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.

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.
