The SYMBIONIC LEG is the first complete bionic leg. Combining a powered ankle and an adaptive microprocessor knee joint, the SYMBIONIC LEG provides unmatched benefits for transfemoral amputees.
The active toe lift in swing clears the ground and minimizes the risk of tripping. Should a stumble occur, an advanced stumble recovery feature protects the user from a fall by providing instant stance support.
I used to avoid uneven surfaces. Now, I have the confidence to go where I want. I've been an amputee for 44 years and this is the best prostheses that I've ever had. As a prosthetist, I would recommend the SYMBIONIC LEG to the majority of above-the-knee amputees, including older amputees.Jerry Swanson - CPO
Automatic terrain adaptation adjusts the ankle angle according to the steepness of the slope, generating better ground contact and optimal knee response when ascending or descending ramps.
Using the heel height adjustment, the user can change shoes or go barefoot without compromising the alignment of the prosthesis.
The SYMBIONIC LEG is made with
