with the world's first complete BIONIC leg.
Consistent ground clearance, terrain adaptation, and easy swing initiation eliminate the need for gait deviations and help restore a natural gait.
Reduce the risk of tripping
SYMBIONIC LEG reduces significantly the risk of tripping up. The perfectly timed and powered toe lift ensures the toe clears the ground during a forward step. And should the user start to slip or fall for any reason, the leg's advanced stumble recovery feature provides instant support.
Change walking speed and direction easily
Adapting naturally to everyday surfaces, including grass and uneven ground, SYMBIONIC LEG offers outstanding stability.
Users can change direction and walking speed easily, with movement that is smoother and visibly more natural, even in confined spaces.
Restore natural gait
The consistent ground clearance, immediate adaptation to changing terrain and easy swing initiation offered by SYMBIONIC LEG all combine to eliminate the need for gait deviations and help restore exceptionally natural, symmetrical gait.
A former mechanical knee user, Randy reports a tremendous change in his overall health and confidence: "Now I am a participant in life, not just an observer.".
Flexible, protective cover
SYMBIONIC LEG can be fitted with a lightweight anatomically shaped cover that helps protect SYMBIONIC LEG from physical damage and water intrusion.
The easy-to-fit cover is made of tough EVA material that provides cushioning and slip resistance when kneeling.
It's about confidence
When you feel stable and comfortable, we believe you'll also feel composed, confident and finally able to focus on the important things in life.

"Before, I avoided ramps and inclines at all cost, but with the SYMBIONIC LEG my mom noticed immediately that I had started walking in a much more fluent and natural way."
Cope with stairs and slopes
SYMBIONIC LEG provides an efficient response to stairs and inclines/declines, enhancing stability and comfort.
When walking on any kind of slope, it automatically adjusts the angle of the ankle according to the steepness of the incline or decline, offering better ground contact and optimal response from the knee.
The consequent feeling of composure and control, without the need to concentrate on every step, helps to enhance mobility and user confidence.
Maintain proper alignment
Changing footwear and heel height is easily accommodated with a user-friendly adjustment feature. Users can change shoes or even walk barefoot, all the while maintaining proper alignment.
