C-LEG

The C-Leg microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knee from Otto Bock started a revolution for above‑knee amputees. Since its 1999 introduction into the U.S. more than 40,000 people worldwide have taken advantage of the unparalleled stability it has offered.

The most clinically evaluated microprocessor knee in history, C-Leg is backed by evidence demonstrating increased efficacy in safety, energy efficiency and cost effectiveness. C-Leg’s superb stumble recovery and smooth swing activation provides a confident, natural gait.  Users can speed up, slow down, take on hills and go down stairs step‑over‑step—all with a secure, comfortable stride.
