Genium microprocessor knee from OTTOBOCK
Imagine work, family, or leisure time activities without having to think about the next step. When an active life demands more function, this is the system that’s needed.
Walk up stairs step over step
The ONLY microprocessor knee (along with the X3!) that lets you walk upstairs step over step under your own power, thanks to Genium’s many sensory inputs.
Cross obstacles more smoothly
Now everyday obstacles can be stepped right over—supported by a stable, flexed knee when your foot strikes the ground. No more awkward swinging your prosthetic leg around the impediments of daily life.
Walk backwards, forwards ... and more
Genium detects forward and backward motion and provides support as needed. The user is secure even when stepping backwards or changing direction
Stand more easily
The Genium can tell when the user is standing and automatically resists further flexing. This translates into being more relaxed while standing, saving energy and taking stress away from the sound side – even on inclines and uneven surfaces.
Sit more naturally
If the user sits for more than 2 seconds (with thigh parallel to the ground and minimal weight on the leg) the Genium reduces resistance to take a more natural position—and switches to an energy saving mode.
Everyday dust and dirt is no problem for Genium. But even better, the Genium is rated IPX-4 – which means protection against splashed water from all sides.
Stability and function in the palm of the hand
Switching between the 5 available activity modes is easy and convenient. The hand-held remote control also includes a battery level monitor and step counter.
No need to interrupt a busy day to re-charge
With a battery life of 5 days, there’s no problem if extra time away from the charger is needed. Plus, Genium’s charger is connected with magnets to the back of the knee. Makes charging a snap — even through clothing or cosmetic covers – and no open charging ports.
Higher weight limit
Now larger users and those who often carry heavy loads can benefit from a maximum limit up to 330 lbs.
