Um resumo dos benefícios
Mais liberdade no movimento
Graças a um novo método patenteado de solução protética C-Leg, o padrão de movimento do usuário tornou-se significativamente mais fácil - por exemplo, em superfícies desafiadoras, como areia, grama ou cascalho. O fluxo de sequências de passos curtos e o padrão de marcha do usuário ao mudar as velocidades de marcha são controlados de forma mais suave. Mesmo se você nunca usou um C-Leg antes, essa tecnologia torna mais curto o período de adaptação.
Fluid movements occur first and foremost when the prosthesis joint responds quickly to different everyday situations. The resistances of the C-Leg adapt to all walking situations in real time, whether on level ground, stairs, ramps or varying surfaces. This gives you a noticeably smoother and more reliable movement pattern – and more energy for the better things in life.
Select the stance function yourself
The C-Leg offers you relief in the standing position. Using a discreet movement pattern, you can assume a relaxed position with a slightly flexed knee. You might already be familiar with this function. It is especially comfortable on slopes and uneven surfaces. A new feature of the C-Leg is that your O&P professional can alternatively set the intuitive stance function at your request. With this function, the joint detects from your movement when you’d like to stand in a relaxed position and when you need support for your next step.
Stumble recovery for enhanced safety
The C-Leg prosthesis solution has always put the user’s safety in numerous everyday situations first. A large number of studies have proven that the frequency of falls in people with a transfemoral amputation is significantly lower with the C-Leg in comparison to conventional prostheses. This makes the C-Leg one of the most reliable leg prosthesis solutions out there. Scientific studies show that this increases confidence in the prosthesis and that users pay greater attention to their surroundings. We’ve taken the C-Leg’s stumble recovery function to a new level: It now offers an even more precise foothold and greater safety.
Another new feature is the automatic sitting function. This function helps you assume a relaxed position after sitting down, as the joint swings freely.
Smart control via app
For the first time, the Cockpit app lets you operate the C-Leg directly using your smartphone (Android) and access information regarding the joint, such as the battery level. The C-Leg communicates with the app via integrated Bluetooth.
In any weather
The C-Leg is weatherproof and therefore protected against splashed water. So a sudden shower during a walk is no longer a problem for the prosthesis wearer.
Protection and attractive design
The C-Leg Protective Cover shields the prosthesis solution against jolts, the environment and normal wear and tear. It consists of a robust main Protective Cover component, a shield insert for the front side as well as a foot cuff. The Protective Cover also gives the leg a natural volume under long clothing.
The C-Leg technology provides intelligent control of the prosthesis solution for people with a transfemoral amputation and adapts it to your gait pattern in real time. Behind this is a complex sensor system that captures data in real time and recognises which phase of walking you are in, whether on level ground, going down stairs step-over-step, or on slopes – and now on difficult surfaces such as forest floor, sand and gravel as well. This makes the C-Leg one of the most reliable leg prosthesis solutions out there. Thanks to the capacity of the prosthesis to adjust itself, the user can also negotiate small obstacles, unclear terrain or large crowds.
Ideal prosthetic components
The Triton prosthetic foot is suitable for users who want a dynamic carbon fibre foot that is suitable for both everyday life and recreational sports.
Triton smart ankle
As an excellent everyday foot, the Triton smart ankle possesses moderate dynamics. Its hydraulic ankle joint supports users particularly well when walking on inclines or sloping surfaces.
