C – Leg Prosthetic Knee System
Otto Bock HealthCare introduced the C-Leg® microprocessor-controlled knee-shin system to the United States in 1999. Since then, thousands of wearers have benefited from this quantum leap in prosthetics – a dramatic improvement over all other prosthetic knees. Featuring unique microprocessor swing and stance phase control, its customized settings and constant readjustments, the C-Leg is truly one of a kind. The efficiency of the C-Leg’s swing phase dynamics, even at varying walking speeds and uneven terrain, provides a more secure, natural, and efficient gait.
Getting started is easy. Using a PC-based custom software, a C-Leg Qualified Prosthetist customizes the C-Leg®;’s settings to fit the individual’s optimal gait pattern. The wearer is also trained and observed while walking on level and uneven terrain, and down stairs. In addition, a second set of settings can be created for a different activity, which the wearer can access by simply tapping their toe – offering choice without mechanical changes!
