Otto Bock HealthCare introduced the C-Leg® microprocessor-controlled knee 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, customized settings and real time adjustments, the C-Leg is truely one of a kind.
The micro-processor controlled SLK utilizes the very advanced "Blank Slate Technology." This means that the computer is pre-programmed with what gait is, but the parameters of that gait self-program as the you walk.
Proprio Bionic Foot
The newly redesigned PROPRIO FOOT with EVO utilizes intelligent ankle flexion to help users walk confidently and naturally, without watching the ground, trusting that their PROPRIO FOOT is stable and safe. The resultant lifelike gait reduces stress on back, hips, and knees, enabling users to walk longer, farther, and more comfortably, and most importantly, to walk their way.
