Ottobock C-Leg Knee
Featuring unique microprocessor swing and stance phase: the technology that offers Day-to-Day Stability.
Otto Bock’s highest priority when developing the C-Leg was to provide optimal stability during the gait cycle. Using unique algorithms developed from studying how thousands of people walk, combined with input from multiple built-in sensors, the microprocessor determines the phase of gait. Then, automatic adjustments are made to the knee’s function to provide stability — right when it is needed. Here’s how it works:
- Additional sensors read the precise angle of the knee joint. This data, along with swing speed input, is read 50 times per second by the on-board microprocessor
- Force sensors in the pylon detect loading of the foot and ankle
- We are happy to let you try it in our clinic before full financial commitments are made, although a charge will be made for socket creation.
