There are numerous prosthetic knees available on the market and we will advise you on the most appropriate for your rehabilitation needs and budget. The type of artificial knee you use has a great effect on the physical effort required to walk and style of your gait. The type of knee you use also influences how safe you are on an artificial limb and reducing the likelihood of  having a fall or stumbling.

Prosthetic knees used to make artificial limbs can be classified into; hand operated knee locks (HOKLs) and semi-automatic knee locks (SAKLs), both producing a locked knee gait and stabilising or multi-axial safety knees with a free knee gait. They can be further divided into swing and stance controlled with or without a stance flexion facility. The knees are engineered in a variety of ways including pneumatic, hydraulic and micro-processor controls plus the latest powered knee joints. With the most sophisticated knee joints it is essential that the Clinical Measurement Laboratory is used to analyse your gait on the limb and this is incorporated into the fixed limb cost.

Mechanical Knee Joint

Ottobock 3R60 EBS Knee
  • Special feature: Ergonomically Balanced Stride (EBS) for extremely safe, comfortable, and natural gait
  • Multi-axis construction improves ground clearance
  • Various walking speeds possible
  • Recommended for mobility levels 2 & 3

Remarkable improvements in the rotary hydraulic system offer better comfort and safety to a wider range of wearers. Improved handling adds even more function to a knee you’ve trusted for a decade.

You want to be able to walk safely and comfortably with prosthesis. Your gait pattern should be similar to the natural, healthy model. With the 3R60 EBS Knee Joint, you are well on your way. When you examine the natural gait pattern closely, the following becomes evident: The human knee joint flexes slightly as soon as the heel impacts the ground. This important process is the basis for the functionality of the 3R60.
