Unique, effective Stumble Recovery

People who wear a leg prosthesis always keep an eye out for carpet edges, scattered children’s toys or curbs. There is a constant risk of stumbling and falling.

The result is a unique and effective Stumble Recovery in all of our microprocessor-controlled knee joints, which has been demonstrated to reduce the risk of falling by up to 64%.

Whether you’re walking slowly or quickly, taking big steps or small ones, walking on stairs or slopes – Ottobock’s electronic knee joints significantly minimise the risk of falling thanks to their unique Stumble Recovery.
