With more than 60,000 C-Leg fittings since the original German launch in 1997, thousands of people have benefited from the new standard of care and improved outcomes the world’s first microprocessor-controlled knee brought to prosthetic care.
“The C-Leg 4 incorporates new technology for reporting that we believe will help clinicians more easily document the benefits of the knee,” says Andreas Kannenberg, Executive Medical Director for Ottobock North America. “Our focus on product quality is complemented by our sensitivity to the changes impacting the prosthetic market today.”
Intuitive Stance, the patented Inertial Motion Unit and 3D Motion Analysis are tangible ways the C-Leg 4 delivers enhanced stumble recovery and improvements in stance and swing phase control. Redesigned software greatly shortens the fitting process, and the unique Cock pit smartphone app gives patients a simple way to switch modes and check battery life. Clinicians will also appreciate reduced system height and the elimination of a special pylon. Finally, an IP67 rating delivers a weatherproof knee.
“As the most popular microprocessor knee available today, we anticipate that C-Leg 4 will help deliver the stability people with above-knee limb loss rely on to reclaim their determination,” said Brad Ruhl, President of Ottobock US HealthCare. “I am impressed with the breadth of improvements the C-Leg 4 offers to clinicians and patients alike.”
