Know the difference – IP Rating explained
What is IP Rating?
Life can get a little wet sometimes. It is important to know how protected your prosthesis is from exposure to the elements. IP Rating is the key to understanding what types of activities you can safely enjoy without ruining your device.
What is weatherproof? What is waterproof? For microprocessor knees, such as the C-Leg 4, the Genium and Genium X3, it all comes down to what is called the IP Rating – and you should know the difference!
Genium X3 carries out the highest level of protection from liquids and solids offered in a microprocessor knee.
This rating protects C-Leg 4 from damage due to incidental contact with or temporary submersion in fresh water.
Ready to reclaim your life? Get to know the differences between the microprocessor knees yourself at a prosthetist near you. And select the device that supports your lifestyle best.
