"LEADERS IN BIONIC TECHNOLOGY"

The WalkAide System:

WalkAide is a revolutionary FDA cleared medical device that leverages functional electrical stimulation (FES) to improve walking ability of people living with foot drop. The WalkAide is also utilized as a Neuro Rehabilitation tool by Clinicians.

WalkAide is a class II, FDA cleared medical device, designed to improve walking ability in people experiencing foot drop caused by upper motor neuron injuries or conditions such as:

  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Stroke (CVA)
  • Cerebral Palsy (CP)
  • Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Walk Aide System

Foot Drop or Dropped Foot is a condition caused by weakness or paralysis of the muscles involved in lifting the front part of the foot, which causes a person to drag the toe of the shoe on the ground or slap the foot on the floor.

Foot drop (also known as drop foot) may result from damage to the central nervous system such as stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. The WalkAide is designed to assist with the ability to lift the foot for those individuals who have suffered an injury to their central nervous system. The WalkAide is not designed to work with people who have damage to the lower motor neurons/peripheral nerves.

MICRO Processor Knees:

C-Leg®: The Standard of Care

The C-Leg microprocessor-controlled prosthetic knee started a revolution for above‑knee amputees. Since it was introduced in the U.S. in 1999, more than 40,000 people worldwide have taken advantage of the unparalleled stability offered by the C-Leg. The most clinically evaluated microprocessor knee in history, C-Leg is backed by evidence demonstrating increased efficacy in safety, energy efficiency and cost effectiveness when compared to other prosthetic knees – making this technology the Standard of Care. 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.

The latest generation of C-Leg adds:

  • Improved swing phase control. Users experience easier initiation at swing, with a smoother, more natural movement.
  • Higher weight limit: 300 lbs.1 Benefiting even more users, including those who weigh more or who routinely carry or lift heavy loads. Genium™ and C-Leg are rated for the highest weight limits in the category.
  • Improved stumble recovery. Increased resistance in case of a trip or stumble.
  • A third mode. Another choice, personalized for the user.
  • Adjustable safety mode. The default setting can be adjusted, personalized to the user’s preference.
  • Improved protection. New silicone caps covering the charging and adjustment jacks are now attached to the knee, securing the caps and improving protection from foreign matter and moisture.

C-Leg Bionic Prosthetic System - Bionic Technology

The Genium™ Bionic Prosthetic System

This state-of-the-art microprocessor-controlled knee joint utilizes a complex sensory system and sophisticated rule sets to mimic natural gait more closely than any other prosthetic knee. With multiple environmental inputs (including a gyroscope and an accelerometer), the Genium delivers unmatched functionality, including special features to help step over obstacles and ascend stairs.

The Genium builds on the knowledge gained from our experience with tens of thousands of C-Leg® wearers and decades of development. The unique Genium technology is not a next-generation C-Leg, but is a sophisticated new technology platform built to gather exponentially greater microprocessor inputs that result in very precise responses.

For the wearer, motion becomes intuitive. Barriers and obstacles become an unconscious part of life instead of an interruption. Whether making a fast turn-and-grab to catch up with a runaway toddler, changing speed dramatically or backing up to navigate a crowd, or simply stepping over an obstacle instead of going around, the Genium makes it all easier without risking stability.

RHEO KNEE®

The newly redesigned RHEO KNEE is an advanced prosthetic device that liberates its users to focus on their chosen activity, instead of having to think about how they are walking.

New developments in Össur's proven bionic technology mean that the RHEO KNEE can recognize and respond even better to the most subtle changes in walking speed and terrain. Using sophisticated artificial intelligence, it continuously learns and adapts to an amputee's walking style and environment.

As a result, it restores people's ability to walk naturally, comfortably and confidently at any speed.

RHEO KNEE also offers outcome documentation to help you better manage reimbursement risk as the new RHEOLOGIC Workbench offers unmatched ability to document RHEO KNEE users’ actual cadence variation and K3 performance.

i-Limb Ultra

The i-limb ultra prosthetic hand is designed for those who want more from their prosthesis.

With the i-limb ultra, your prosthesis looks and moves more like a natural hand than any other powered prosthetic hand. Each finger moves independently and bends at the natural joints so that it can accurately adapt to fit around the shape of the object you want to grasp.

Powered by Touch Bionics' unique biosim software, the i-limb ultra is the most versatile prosthetic hand available, providing you with the ability to customize the hand for your daily needs.

Choose from a wide selection of automated grips and gestures to help you complete your daily tasks, such as index point for typing, precision pinch mode for gripping small objects or natural hand position for walking or while at rest.

Utilizing its pulsing and vari-grip features, the i-limb ultra is the only prosthetic hand with the ability to gradually increase the strength of its grip on an object. This can be very useful in situations where a firmer grasp is required, such as tying shoelaces tightly or holding a heavy bag more securely.

The i-limb ultra is based on the reliable design of our i-LIMB Pulse product, but with some new upgraded features.

New features at a glance
  • Patent-pending vari-grip mode, allowing variable digit-by-digit grip strength
  • Gesture selection allows users to create custom gestures
  • Upgraded biosim-i andbiosim-pro control software, with powerful new features
  • Three new tripod grips for increased user flexibility
  • Auto grasp feature to prevent objects slipping
  • Hand automatically moves to a natural position after period of inactivity
  • Low battery warning audio signal
  • Two i-limb skin active coverings
  • One i-limb skin natural covering
  • Power management, extending daily battery usage by 25%
  • Dedicated clinical support for prosthetists and therapists
  • 2-year standard warranty
